TALK TO JEFFERIES SOLICITORS TODAY
Our legal specialists have helped clients based all around the UK, including those who live in Ely. If you have been involved in an accident that wasn’t your fault, we can help you.
Based near Cambridge, Ely is often associated with its quaint city centre and stunning Norman cathedral. The population of the city is relatively small and the local economy primarily revolves around agricultural work. The city is known for having a close community and is regarded as a safe place to live. However, accidents are not reserved for busier cities and we have dealt with several claims arising from small cities, such as Ely.
Over the last 25 years, our solicitors have garnered a vast range of knowledge and experience by helping people in Ely and across the UK. At Jefferies Solicitors we work tirelessly to ensure that you are awarded the compensation you deserve. We deal with a very diverse range of cases and have compiled a list of our most common queries. These include: dental negligence, accidents at work and accidents in public places, such as supermarkets or parks.

Accident at Work Claims
Do you work in or around Ely? Have you been involved in a workplace accident that wasn’t your fault? Your employer is responsible for keeping you safe at work. If they have failed to do this and you have become injured then you may have a potential claim. You may, with Ely’s thriving agricultural industry, have sustained an injury on farm machinery or perhaps you work in an office. In any case, you should contact us and discuss the details with our experts who will be able to advise you further.
For more details please see our accidents at work page.
Accidents in a Public Place
Public authorities and private companies have an obligation to keep residents and customers safe. If you have suffered an injury, such as a slip, trip and fall in a supermarket (for example), then you may be eligible to make a 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, your claim is likely to be accepted.
Please see our accidents in a public place section for more information.
Road Traffic Accidents
Our team specialise in helping the traumatised victims of road traffic accidents. We understand that injuries can be relatively minor or very serious – but no matter the severity of your injury, you may have a claim. Sometimes you may not feel the true impact of the accident in the immediate aftermath and it may take days, weeks or months for symptoms of your injury to develop. We recommend contacting one of our specialists to discuss the specific details of your potential claim.
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 Ely 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.
