The city of Durham is often associated with its beautiful Norman cathedral and world class university. The city lies on the River Wear and is frequented by tourists from all over the nation during the summer months. The city is generally regarded as a safe place to live, but sometimes accidents can happen. If you are the victim of an accident that wasn’t your fault, we encourage you to discuss your potential claim with us today.
We have helped many residents of Durham and the wider UK population access the compensation that they are rightly entitled to. We deal with a very diverse range of cases and these can all be found by using the menu on our website. Some of the most common claims that we pursue on behalf of our clients include: dental negligence, accidents at work and accidents in public places, such as supermarkets or parks.
We have specialists that work in all areas of injury law. The list below will give you an idea of our most common enquiries:
Clinical Negligence Claims
If you have suffered pain at the hands of a careless healthcare professional then you may be eligible to claim compensation. You deserve to feel safe when you use the services of a trusted medical expert or organisation. We speak to a lot of customers who have suffered both psychologically and physically due to misdiagnosis, cosmetic surgery or injuries sustained by defective equipment, e.g. a defibrillator. You’re not alone – we can help you! If you would like to learn more please see our clinical negligence section.
Accident at Work Claims
Have you been involved in a workplace accident in Durham? Your employer is responsible for keeping you safe at work. You may be eligible to claim if they have failed in this duty and you have become injured as a result. It’s also worth noting that injuries can happen in any workplace environments that aren’t necessarily labour-intensive, such as offices. If you have any doubts as to whether you can claim, please contact us today so that we can discuss the specifics of your potential case.
For more details please see our accidents at work page.
Accidents in a Public Place
If you have been injured at a public place in Durham then you may be able to claim. There are many variables involved and we will need to speak with you online or on the phone in order to assess your circumstances. However, if it can be proven that a company or person was at fault for your injury – such as a supermarket – then your claim is likely to be accepted.
Please see our accidents in a public place section for more information.
Road Traffic Accidents
Our experts are trained to help victims of car accidents deal with any traumatic injuries they may have sustained. Road traffic accidents are physically and emotionally stressful events. We can help relieve some of that stress by guiding you through the whole legal process in a simplistic and empathetic manner.
If you or a loved one has been the victim of a car accident, our Road Traffic Accident Claims page has further details.
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 local to you in Durham 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.
