Accident At Work Claims
Your employer has a duty of care towards all of their staff to ensure safety in the workplace by following health and safety guidelines and protections specific to your industry. These guidelines may include the provision of necessary training such as manual handling training if you work in a warehouse or it may include ensuring that the building you work in is not hazardous.
If your employer has failed to protect you in the workplace or if a colleague’s negligent behaviour has caused an accident to occur, you may be able to claim compensation.

Clinical Negligence Claims
Clinical negligence cases can cover many different scenarios such as poor medical advice from a GP that has caused extra harm or poor practice during a procedure such as surgery. This type of personal injury claim doesn’t just cover traditional medical settings but it can also apply to private and elective practices such as receiving cosmetic surgery.
If you believe that you have suffered malpractice or negligent behaviour within a clinical setting, you may be able to claim for 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 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 Salford.
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.
