TALK TO JEFFERIES SOLICITORS TODAY
At Jefferies Solicitors our experts have helped clients in Exeter, other areas in Devon and the rest of the UK.
Have you suffered an injury in an accident that wasn’t your fault? We are here to help. Our solicitors are on hand to guide you through the legal process step-by-step.
The city of Exeter was redeveloped after the Second World War and is now considered a prominent business and tourism centre in Devon. It is also home to a reputable university and approximately 130,000 residents. Exeter is also regarded as a significant transport hub in South-West England and is a popular place for workers within the region. Unfortunately, Exeter – like most cities – has its ‘fair share’ of accidents.
For the last 25 years, our solicitors have helped people in Exeter and the wider UK population access the compensation they are rightly entitled to. We specialise in a very wide range of cases, including dental negligence, accidents at work, and accidents in public places, such as supermarkets or parks.
We have experts in most areas of injury law. However, this page will give you an idea of our most common enquiries:
Clinical Negligence Claims
Have you suffered an injury under the care of a trusted medical professional? Healthcare workers have a responsibility to ensure that their patients undergo appropriate, safe treatment. Our team have helped those who have suffered both psychologically and physically due to misdiagnosis, cosmetic surgery, or injuries sustained by defective equipment, e.g. a defibrillator. Speak with us today to discuss your potential claim.
If you would like to learn more please see our clinical negligence section.
Accident at Work Claims
You could be eligible to claim compensation if you have been injured at work. It is your employer’s responsibility to ensure your safety at work. If they have failed in this duty and you have become injured as a result, you should speak with us today. Injuries can happen in all working environments, from offices to construction sites, so don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any queries.
See our accidents at work page for further information.
Accidents in a Public Place
Have you sustained an injury in a public place in Exeter? You may have a potential claim if this happened to you – whether you visited a local park or the supermarket. Private owners and local authorities are normally responsible for ensuring that public places or venues are safe for the general public to visit. If they have been negligent in this duty then you may have a potential claim.
Please see our accidents in a public place section for more information.
Road Traffic Accidents
Our solicitors are specially trained to help victims of car accidents deal with any injuries they may have sustained. We appreciate that road traffic accidents are physically and mentally traumatising 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 Derby 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.
