Our experts have won numerous cases throughout Sunderland
Were you injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault? Jefferies Solicitors are here to help you.
Sunderland is a city that is ten miles southeast of Newcastle and it is located incredibly close to the River Wear. Manufacturing, such as Nissan Motor Manufacturing UK, is a major industry within Sunderland. Sadly, manufacturing is an industry that generally has a greater risk for serious accidents occurring than other industries. If you have been injured while working in, living in or visiting Sunderland you may be able to claim compensation.
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 Sunderland, such as:
>Accident At Work Claims
No matter what industry you work in, your employer has a duty of care towards all of their employees. This includes ensuring that they uphold all health and safety standards that relate to your industry, such as training or the provision of personal protective equipment. If your employer fails to do this, or another employee acts negligently, and you are injured in an accident you may be able to claim compensation as a result.

Clinical Negligence Claims
Clinical negligence can refer to many different scenarios, such as negative advice from a GP which causes you further pain and harm or poor medical behaviour during surgery. No matter the specific scenario in which the clinical negligence occurred, such as a dentist appointment, if you have suffered as a result of poor clinical behaviour or practice, you may be able to claim compensation.

Road Traffic Accidents
Road traffic accidents can happen even if you are doing your best to drive safe, as you sadly cannot assume that everyone else on the road is doing the same. If you have been involved in a road traffic accident, as a passenger, pedestrian, cyclist or a driver, then you may be able to claim compensation. The injuries that are caused by road traffic accidents can often be quite severe and potentially debilitating for a long period of time. Therefore, compensation can help ensure that you get the care and treatment you need. If you have been involved in a road traffic accident that wasn’t your fault, contact Jefferies Solicitors today.

Accidents In A Public Place
Accidents can happen anywhere, such as when walking down the street or when eating at a café. No matter where your accident has occurred, if it was not your fault but due to the negligence of another party, you may be able to claim compensation in response. Accidents in public places can take many forms, such as a slip, trip and fall accident. However, it doesn’t matter what type of accident you have been in, as long as it was not your fault, Jefferies Solicitors are here to help you get the compensation you deserve.

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 Sunderland.
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.
