Our expert team deal with various different types of cases throughout Newport, such as:
Accident At Work Claims
Accidents can happen in any workplace, whether you work in a factory or in an office. Your employer should help to ensure your safety by following the health and safety regulations that are relevant to your job role. These regulations may include the provision of personal protective equipment, like a hard hat or a mask, where necessary. If you have been injured or have developed a condition/an illness due to your employer’s negligent behaviour, then you may be able to claim compensation. Similarly, if you have been injured due to the negligence of another employee, you may also be able to claim compensation.

Clinical Negligence Claims
Clinical negligence can occur in many different scenarios, such as when visiting the dentist’s office or when going to a massage parlour. If you have been injured due to clinical negligence, you may be able to claim compensation as a result.
Clinical negligence could refer to an unnecessary injury occurring due to malpractice during a procedure to receiving poor medical advice which causes you further harm, perhaps due to undergoing unnecessary treatment. No matter what type of clinical negligence you have experienced, Jefferies Solicitors will happily assess your claim and guide you through the legal process.

Road Traffic Accidents
Road traffic accidents can cause serious injuries, perhaps even long-term disability or even death. If you or a loved one has been injured in a road traffic accident that was the fault of another party, you may be eligible to claim compensation. Whether your injuries are incredibly serious or more minor, you still deserve to be able to make a compensation claim if you wish.
Compensation can often be invaluable in easing the financial burden that you might be experiencing after being injured in an accident. If the road traffic accident was caused by someone else’s negligent behaviour, contact Jefferies Solicitors to begin the claims process today.

Accidents In A Public Place
If you have been injured while in a public place, even if that public place was simply the city centre, you may be able to claim compensation. There are many different accident types that you could experience in a public place, such as a slip, trip and fall accident. Still, it doesn’t matter what accident type you have experienced, if it wasn’t your fault you may be able to claim compensation.
Business owners and local councils have a duty of care to ensure that the areas they have jurisdiction over are free from hazards like obstructed walkways. Therefore, if you have been injured due to their failure to ensure that health and safety standards are met, you may be able to claim compensation.

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 Newport.
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.
