Were you injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault? Jefferies Solicitors are here to help you
Famous for being a historic university city, Cambridge is a very busy and popular destination for tourists and residents. While most residents and visitors are completely safe while travelling through Cambridge, there is always the possibility of injury, as there is while travelling through any city – especially one as busy and popular as Cambridge.
With over 25 years of experience, Jefferies Solicitors have helped numerous clients throughout the UK claim the compensation they deserve. We have helped clients with gaining compensation relating to many different types of accidents, such as dental negligence, accidents at work and accidents in public places like supermarkets.
Our team of experts has helped many clients throughout Cambridge and Cambridgeshire, focusing upon areas such as:
Accident at Work Claims
Within all job roles, there is always the possibility of being involved in an accident. Cambridge has a lot of employment-related to the biosciences and software industries, meaning that the risk of being injured in relation to heavy machinery is perhaps lessened but there is still a possibility of less severe injuries at work. No matter your specific job role or the accident that you have been involved in, if it wasn’t your fault you deserve to receive some form of compensation to ensure that your quality of life does not suffer as a result of your injuries.

Clinical Negligence Claims
Clinical negligence refers to when a medical professional does not uphold the responsibilities of their industry standards to ensure your health and safety while under their care. This lack of care can result in you suffering an avoidable injury, which would then be grounds for compensation. Clinical negligence also includes complications that occur in dental or cosmetic procedures, so the scenario does not have to necessarily involve a hospital. If you were injured due to clinical negligence, then you may be eligible for compensation.

Road Traffic Accidents
In 2016 there were 347 fatal and serious injury crashes in Cambridge, which was the highest number since 2009. Whether you have been injured in a serious crash or your injuries are more minor, you would still be entitled to compensation if the collision was not your fault. Furthermore, due to the popularity of bikes within Cambridge city centre compared to cars, there is the added possibility of being involved in a bike-related collision- either as a pedestrian or as the bicycle rider. No matter the type of vehicle you were using or if you were a pedestrian, you deserve to receive compensation if you were involved in an accident that was not your fault. Jefferies Solicitors want to ensure that you can get the compensation you need to maintain your quality of life despite a serious accident.

Accidents in a Public Place
While most people walking around Cambridge continue to be safe and free from harm, there is always the possibility of being injured in an accident in a public place. Whether you were injured in a café, while visiting the university or in a shop if the accident was not your fault you could be able to make a claim for compensation.

What happens after I contact Jefferies Solicitors?
Our experts at Jefferies Solicitors will take some initial details about your case to assess whether you have a valid claim. All initial consultation regarding your claim is free, so even if we do not decide to take on your case or you decide to go with a different law firm you will not be charged. There is a limited time within which claims can be made, usually three years, so it is important that you get in touch with a legal team as soon as you decide you want to make a claim. As long as the accident or incident was not your fault but due to the negligence actions of another party, you should have a valid claim.
It is important that you keep any evidence relating to your case safe. For example, if you took photos of the accident scene, kept a journal where you detailed your accident/injuries or have medical records relating to your injuries, these pieces of information can become crucial in winning your case. No matter how insignificant you might think a piece of information is, it could be very valuable when applied to your case.
Jefferies Solicitors offer a no win, no fee* service which means that if we do not win your case then you will not be charged fees for using our services. We understand that money can be a barrier for making a claim, therefore we want to ensure that anyone who deserves compensation can get it without fearing a financial loss.
How much compensation can I get?
Every accident and injury is unique and therefore compensation is decided on a case by case basis. The extent of your injuries is the most important factor in determining how much compensation you will be owed. However, compensation also takes into account any financial losses that you might have suffered as a result of your injuries, such as a loss of earnings due to being unable to return to work. Your injuries will be assessed by doctors who are local to you in Cambridge so that you are not inconvenienced.
Our compensation calculator will give you an indication of how much you might be entitled to based upon your injuries. Jefferies Solicitors will take these different details relating to your injury into account when calculating how much compensation you should be awarded, which will then be put forward to the opposing side and the judge.
