Were you injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault? Jefferies Solicitors are here to help you get the compensation you deserve.
Carlisle is a cathedral city located in the North West county of Cumbria. Due to cultural features such as the Carlisle Music Festival and The Tullie House Museum and Art Gallery, Carlisle is a popular city to visit and live in. While no more dangerous than any other place in the world, there is always the possibility of suffering an accident while living in, working in or visiting Carlisle. If you experienced an accident that was not your fault, then you may be eligible for compensation.
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 have helped many clients throughout the Carlisle and Cumbria area, focusing upon legal areas such as:
Accidents in a Public Place
Accidents can happen in many different public places, such as the Carlisle Cathedral, a café, or theatre. No matter the venue and the specifics of the scenario, if the accident was not your fault then you could be eligible to claim compensation for your injuries. Accidents usually occur due to private owners, a governmental/public body, or a business owner failing to uphold health and safety regulations, or just decent practice. Contact Jefferies Solicitors to begin the process of claiming compensation for your accident.
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 high visibility clothing if it is necessary for your job role. Carlisle has large retail and manufacturing sectors which can highlight that the risks associated with each type of job are different – working with heavy machinery could involve a different type of injury to a shop environment. Still, no matter the type of job, if you were injured due to your employer not taking the proper precautions to ensure your safety then you could be eligible to claim compensation.

Clinical Negligence Claims
Clinical negligence specifically refers to when injury or harm is caused by a healthcare/medical professional failing to uphold and adhere to the standards of their industry. This type of negligence also applies to non-hospital related scenarios such as cosmetic surgery. If you have been the victim of clinical negligence then you could be able to claim 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 Carlisle 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.
