Our expert team deals with various different types of cases throughout York, such as:
Accident At Work Claims
Roughly 88.7% of people in York are employed in the service industry, which means that many people work in offices rather than another type of work environment. Therefore, if you have been injured at work you may not think it is that serious but every work injury case matters and you deserve to receive compensation if the incident that caused your injuries was not your fault. If you work in any other work environment or industry you also deserve to claim compensation after an accident that wasn’t your fault.
Your employer should protect you from harm by following health and safety guidelines, such as providing training or personal protective equipment where necessary. If your employer has failed to do this, resulting in an accident occurring, then you may be able to claim for any injuries. Similarly, if another employee has displayed negligent behaviour which caused an accident to occur, you may also be able to claim.

Clinical Negligence Claims
Whether you received harmful advice from a dentist or were the victim of malpractice during surgery, you deserve to receive compensation if you have been injured as a result of clinical negligence. Clinical negligence can also occur in more elective and private practices, such as a cosmetic surgery practice or a massage parlour. No matter where your incident of clinical negligence has occurred, if you have been injured as a result you deserve to claim compensation.

Accidents In A Public Place
Whether you have been injured while walking down the street or while in a local business, you deserve to claim compensation if the incident that caused you to be injured was not your fault. Local businesses owners or local authorities with jurisdiction over certain areas have a duty to ensure that there are no health and safety violations in their businesses or jurisdiction. This lack of health and safety violations includes ensuring that walkways are not obstructed. If you have been injured in a public place accident that wasn’t your fault, 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 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 York.
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.
