Were you injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault? Jefferies Solicitors are here to help you.
Newcastle upon Tyne, commonly referred to as just Newcastle, is the most populous city in the North East. Newcastle has a large range of different industries within its economy, such as technology, tourism and education. However, despite the popularity of Newcastle as a place to live or visit, there is always the possibility of being injured in the city. If you have been injured while in Newcastle due to an accident that wasn’t your fault, Jefferies Solicitors can help you claim the compensation you deserve.
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 Newcastle upon Tyne, such as:
Accident At Work Claims
Whether you work in an office or on a construction site, you could potentially suffer an accident at work. If this accident was caused or exacerbated by the negligence of your employer or another employee, then you may be able to claim compensation. For example, your employer should provide training in order for you to successfully and safely complete your job role. If you work in a warehouse, this training would likely include manual handling training.
If your employer has failed to uphold any expected standards of care, such as the provision of training, and this has resulted in you or someone else in your place of employment suffering an injury, you may be able to claim compensation.

Clinical Negligence Claims
Clinical negligence could refer to misdiagnosis or a failure to provide the correct healthcare information, resulting in further harm. This personal injury term could also refer to malpractice in situations such as surgery or a medical examination. Clinical negligence claims can also be brought against private practices or clinicians like cosmetic surgeons or dentists, rather than just doctor and nurse practices.

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 Newcastle.
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.
