Were you injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault? Jefferies Solicitors are here to help you
Lancaster is located next to the River Lune in Lancashire and it has a population of roughly 52,234 people. With Lancaster University and the popularity of Lancaster’s Georgian architecture, the city is a beloved historic town for visitors and residents alike. While most people are not injured while visiting the city, there is sadly always the possibility that an accident could occur. If you have been involved in an accident that wasn’t your fault, you may be able to claim compensation as a result.
With over 25 years of experience, Jefferies Solicitors have helped numerous clients throughout the UK claim the compensation they deserve. We have helped clients with gaining compensation relating to many different types of accidents, such as dental negligence, accidents at work and accidents in public places like supermarkets.
Our expert team deals with various different types of cases throughout Lancaster, such as:
Accident At Work Claims
An accident at work could take many different forms, such as a fall from height or a crushing accident. However, if you believe that your accident was caused by negligence on the part of your employer or another employee, then you may be able to claim compensation as a result. The government and the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) have outlined many different regulations and rules for safety in the workplace. For each industry, there will be different regulations that all employees should follow. These regulations might include the provision of personal protective equipment by employers when necessary or the provision of adequate training for manual handling.

Clinical Negligence Claims
Whether you are speaking to a GP or undergoing surgery, all medical practitioners have a duty of care to ensure your safety while you are in their care. If you have received poor medical advice, have received a misdiagnosis or you received any other form of negligent medical treatment, you may be entitled to compensation.

Road Traffic Accidents
In 2018, there were 16,204 road traffic collisions throughout the whole of Lancashire. If you or a loved one has been impacted by a road traffic accident – whether you were a passenger, pedestrian, driver or cyclist – you may be entitled to claim compensation if the incident was not your fault. Compensation can seriously help with the recovery process by easing the financial burden that you might be suffering from due to your injuries.

Accidents In A Public Place
Accidents can sadly happen anywhere, such as in a supermarket or a museum. No matter where you are, if you have been involved in an accident that wasn’t your fault, you may be able to claim compensation as a result. If you have suffered an accident that wasn’t your fault while in a public place, you may be entitled to claim compensation for your injuries.

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 who are local to you in Lancaster.
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.
