Our expert team deals with various different types of cases throughout Lincoln, such as:
Accident At Work Claims
Many people travel into Lincoln from surrounding areas like Welton. Whether you work directly in the city centre or in one of the surrounding areas of Lincoln, you deserve to receive compensation if you have been injured at work in an accident that wasn’t your fault. Certain professions, such as manufacturing, are more likely to incur more serious accidents than others, such as working in an office. For example, you are more likely to be involved in an accident with machinery if you work in a factory and the injuries resulting from a machinery accident are often quite serious.
No matter your place of employment or job role, your employer has a duty of care to protect your health and safety in the workplace. If your employer has failed to fulfil this duty of care and you have been injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault, you may be able to claim compensation. For example, if you work on a construction site your employer should provide hard hats and other necessary personal protective equipment. If they have failed to do so and you are involved in an accident where these protections could have lessened your injuries, then you may be able to claim compensation.

Clinical Negligence Claims
When most people think of clinical negligence they think of malpractice during surgery or a medical examination. However, clinical negligence can also refer to misinformation or misdiagnosis which results in further harm, as well as other poor behaviours relating to medical treatment.
Furthermore, this form of personal injury doesn’t just refer to doctors and nurses but a clinical negligence case could also be brought against cosmetic surgeons, dentists and other professionals in similar fields.

Road Traffic Accidents
The wider Lincolnshire area is considered the ‘second most deadly’ for road traffic accidents in the UK, based upon data from 2019. Therefore, it is important that everyone who uses the roads remains vigilant at all times, no matter whether you are a cyclist, pedestrian, driver or passenger. If you have been injured in a road traffic accident that wasn’t your fault, you may be able to claim compensation.
While compensation cannot take back the injuries or the incredibly difficult experience you have gone through, it can help with the healing process by ensuring that you and your loved ones get the financial support you need.

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 Lincoln.
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.
