Our team of experts has helped many clients throughout Canterbury and Kent, focusing upon legal areas such as:
Accidents in a Public Place
Whether you were visiting St. Augustine’s chapel or a chain coffee shop, if you were injured in a public place due to an accident that was not your fault, you could be eligible to claim compensation for your injuries. Accidents in a public place covers a large range of different scenarios but these accidents will usually occur because a business owner, public authority or landowner has failed to fulfil their duty to follow health and safety standards or to keep the people in their vicinity safe. As long as the accident was not your fault, you are most likely eligible to make a claim.
For more information about specific types of public place accident claims visit our accidents in a public place page.
Accident at Work Claims
No matter your job role, there is the possibility of being involved in an accident if health and safety standards are not met and precautions are not taken – such as providing work boots if you work around heavy machinery. Within Canterbury, tourism is one of the biggest industries. While the injuries that someone might sustain while working in the tourism industry would likely be less severe than people who work in a factory, you would still deserve to be compensated if you were injured at work in an accident that was not your fault.

Road Traffic Accidents
Throughout the whole of Kent there were 3,808 collisions in 2018. Anyone who is involved in a road traffic accident knows that they can be traumatic and leave injuries which range from slight to even fatal. If you were involved in a road traffic accident that wasn’t your fault, no matter if you were a pedestrian, cyclist or a driver, you deserve to be compensated to help maintain your quality of life. Contact Jefferies Solicitors to begin the claims process.

Clinical Negligence Claims
Clinical negligence refers to physical or mental harm caused by a healthcare professional failing to uphold the standards and practices of their industry. Clinical negligence can also include injuries from cosmetic procedures, so it is important to note that clinical negligence does not just always refer to procedures or appointments within a hospital. If you have been injured due to clinical negligence, then you may be entitled to compensation as a result of your injuries.

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 Canterbury 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.
