Wakefield is a cathedral city located in West Yorkshire, close to the River Calder. Wakefield is historically important as the Battle of Wakefield, a battle in the War of the Roses, took place nearby in Sandal Magna and the city was also a Royalist stronghold during the English Civil War. While Wakefield is a lovely place to visit or live in, there is always the possibility that you could be injured while in the city. If you have been injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault, you may be able to claim compensation as a result.
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 Wakefield, such as:
Accident At Work Claims
In Wakefield, a high number of people are employed in manufacturing, distribution and the service industries. While accidents can happen in any workplace, there are certain accidents that are more likely to happen in the manufacturing industry and these types of accidents can often cause serious injuries.
For example, if someone is injured in an accident that involves heavy machinery, they could potentially be seriously harmed. Therefore, your employer should make sure to follow health and safety regulations, such as giving adequate training, to reduce the likelihood of these sorts of accidents happening.
No matter the industry that you work in, your employer should aim to protect you from harm by following health and safety guidelines. If they fail to do so, you may be able to claim compensation for any injuries that you have incurred as a result. This is also the case if another employee’s negligent behaviour has caused you to suffer an injury.

Clinical Negligence Claims
Clinical negligence can refer to many different scenarios, such as experiencing unnecessary injury due to poor performance during a medical surgery or receiving harmful advice while visiting the dentist. Clinical negligence also refers to more private and elective practices, such as cosmetic surgery. No matter where your incident happened if you believe that you were injured due to clinical negligence, you may be able to claim compensation.

Road Traffic Accidents
The most dangerous roads in Wakefield are the A61, with 146 accidents occurring; the A645, with 142 accidents occurring and the A642 with 125 accidents occurring. However, road traffic accidents can happen anywhere and therefore all people on the road should always be vigilant.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a road traffic accident, the injuries that are suffered can often be quite severe. Therefore, if you believe the accident was not yours or theirs fault, you could benefit from claiming compensation as this can help ensure that the injured party gets the treatment they need to recover.

No matter where your accident has occurred, if it wasn’t your fault you may be able to claim compensation. There are many different accident types that can occur in a public place, such as a slip, trip and fall accident.

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 Wakefield.
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.
