Accident At Work Claims
No matter which industry you work in, such as finance or manufacturing, you deserve to be protected from harm in the workplace. In fact, your employer has a legal obligation to ensure your safety by following health and safety guidelines that pertain to your industry. For example, if you work on a construction site, you and every other employee should have been provided with hard hats to wear while at work.
If your employer has failed to follow any of the necessary health and safety regulations for your industry and this has resulted in you being injured in an accident, you may be able to claim compensation. Furthermore, if another employee has behaved in a negligent way, causing you to suffer an injury, you may also be able to claim for compensation. Contact Jefferies Solicitors today to begin the claims process.

If you have been injured due to clinical negligence in any of these scenarios, or any other clinical scenarios, you may be able to claim compensation. Contact Jefferies Solicitors to assess your claim and determine how much compensation you are likely to be owed in your case.

Road Traffic Accidents
Road traffic accidents can happen anywhere and to anyone on the road, whether you are a driver, passenger, pedestrian or a cyclist. If you have been injured in a road traffic accident that wasn’t your fault, you may be able to claim compensation as a result. The injuries resulting from these sorts of accidents can often be quite severe and dangerous, potentially even fatal.
Compensation can often be very instrumental in ensuring that you or an injured family member can properly recover after a serious accident, without worrying about the financial costs.

Accidents In A Public Place
If you have been injured in an accident in a public place that wasn’t your fault, perhaps while going to a concert or while going to the supermarket, you may be able to claim compensation. Even if you believe that your injuries are fairly minor, you deserve to receive compensation if the accident was not your fault.
The business owner or the local authority who has jurisdiction over the area where your accident happened has a duty of care to ensure that their locations are not hazardous. If they have failed to uphold that duty of care, you have the right to make a claim.

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 Wells.
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.
