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 Leicester, such as:
Accident At Work Claims
If you have been injured at work in Leicester due to negligent behaviour on the part of your employer or another employee, you may be able to claim compensation. Leicester has a strong engineering sector and sadly, accidents that happen within engineering plants can sometimes be quite serious due to the use of heavy machinery within factories. If you have been injured in any sort of workplace, no matter how severe or minor that injury was, you may be able to claim compensation in response.
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
Whether you are speaking to a GP or undergoing surgery, all medical practitioners have a duty of care to ensure your safety. If this duty of care is not upheld and you have been injured or have received damaging advice, you may be able to claim compensation in response.

Road Traffic Accidents
In the wider area of Leicestershire, there was a total of 2,184 road traffic accidents in 2016. The injuries resulting from road traffic accidents are often very severe and potentially even fatal. If you or a loved one have been injured in a road traffic accident – whether you were a passenger, pedestrian, driver or cyclist – you may be able to claim compensation. Compensation can often 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
You can sadly be injured anywhere, whether you are in a supermarket or a café. 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. It doesn’t matter how severe or minor your injuries are, as long as the accident is not your fault you could be able to claim.

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 Leicester.
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.
