Our expert team deals with various different types of cases throughout Leeds, such as:
Accident At Work Claims
The highest employers within Leeds are Leeds City Council and the Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust. Many public sector health authorities also reside in the city, such as the Department of Health. While these sorts of working environments may not seem as potentially dangerous as a factory or a construction site, there is always the potential for an accident to occur, no matter where you work. No matter the industry that you work in, if your employer has failed to protect you in the workplace, then you may be able to claim compensation.
The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) have outlined many different regulations about how to keep safe 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
Clinical negligence could refer to misdiagnosis, poor treatment during surgery or poor dental treatment amongst many other possible claims. If you believe that you have been treated poorly while receiving medical treatment, you may be able to claim compensation.

Road Traffic Accidents
In 2018, there were 337 people seriously injured or killed due to a road traffic accident in Leeds. As suggested by those figures, the injuries caused by road traffic accidents are often quite severe, possibly resulting in disability or even death. If you or a loved one has been injured in a road traffic accident, you may be able to claim compensation as a result.
It doesn’t matter whether you are a passenger, pedestrian, driver or cyclist, if the accident was not your fault then you deserve to be able to make a claim if you wish. Compensation can often seriously help with the recovery process by easing the financial burden that you might be suffering from due to 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 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 Leeds.
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.
