Located in West Sussex, the cathedral city of Chichester was founded by the Romans and features a stunning 12th century cathedral. Chichester sits on the River Lavant and is a well-connected hub of several main road routes. It has a modest population of residents but has become a beacon for tourism in West Sussex over the years. The city is generally regarded as very safe but, sadly, accidents can occur at any time or any place.
Our expert lawyers have helped people in Chichester win compensation for a diverse range of claims. Our 25 years of experience has seen us deal with cases such as: road traffic accidents, dental negligence, accidents at work and accidents in public places, such as shopping centres.
We receive a wide variety of enquiries, but here are some of the most common cases that we help our customers with:
Clinical Negligence Claims
No patient should have to feel pain as the result of negligent treatment by a trusted medical professional. Injuries can result for a number of reasons, for example: misdiagnosis, cosmetic surgery or defective equipment, e.g. a defibrillator. There is more information on our dedicated clinical negligence page.
Accident at Work Claims
Everyone is entitled to feel safe in their place of work. If your employer has not taken the correct precautions to make your workplace safe it may eventually lead to an injury. If you have been injured at your workplace in Chichester you may be entitled to claim compensation.
Our specialists have helped many people across the UK, including those in Chichester. Accidents can happen whether you do manual labour or a less physical office-based role. If you have sustained an injury at work – big or small – you should get in touch so that we can assess your potential claim and advise you further.
Please see our accidents at work page for more information.
Accidents in a Public Place
Unfortunately accidents in public places happen all the time and are often caused by third-party negligence. If you live in Chichester and have visited a public place – such as a supermarket or museum – and you have sustained an injury that wasn’t your fault, you should get in touch.
Our accidents in a public place page has further details on how to make a claim. If you have any questions you can speak to a member of our friendly team online.
Road Traffic Accidents
Chichester has a great network of road and rail services. The A27 connects the city to the M27, M3 and the M275 motorways. This means that the traffic can build up considerably at peak times, and more cars on the road usually indicates a greater probability of accidents occurring. The most common causes of car accidents usually involve careless driving or potholes. However, there are endless scenarios in which you may be entitled to make a claim for a car accident that wasn’t your fault.
If you or a loved one has been the victim of a car accident that you (or they) are not responsible for, please visit our Road Traffic Accident Claims page for further information.
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.
Call our specialists on 0800 342 3206 or fill out our online form to arrange a no-obligation confidential conversation about your accident.
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 local to you in Chichester 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.
