Accident At Work Claims
Jefferies Solicitors want to ensure that your quality of life does not suffer after experiencing an injury at work. Due to the fact that Hereford’s economy is primarily based in manufacturing and agriculture, it is important to remember that accidents at work could also refer to poor interactions with livestock or endangerment due to faulty machinery.
Accidents at work can take many forms and this term does not just refer to office work. No matter your job role or the industry that you work in, your employer has a legal duty of care to ensure your safety. This includes following government health and safety regulations that apply to your specific industry.
Hereford council note that they commonly receive reports about incidents in leisure and entertainment locations, such as restaurants, hotels, shops or pubs.

Medical negligence could refer to misdiagnosis or poor advice or it could refer to unsafe practices being performed during surgery. No matter the scenario, if you were impacted negatively due to a medical practitioners’ actions, 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 of 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 Hereford.
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.
