Serious injuries, from work-related incidents to road traffic accidents, can have an immeasurable impact on the lives of victims and their families.
Recovery can be challenging but compensation can provide vital rehabilitation and specialist care and support. Here are five key steps to recovery:
- Instruct experienced and specialist solicitors
After a serious injury, you need an expert legal team behind you. At Novum Law, we can help you secure maximum financial compensation and provide invaluable access to the best medical experts and care and support providers such as case managers and support groups.
- Seek interim payments
In cases where liability is not in dispute, interim payment awards (a proportion of your likely compensation award) can be sought from the defendant’s insurer. At Novum Law, we pride ourselves on obtaining early interim payments which is invaluable to our clients to be able to help pay for medical treatment, rehabilitation, specialist equipment and necessary adaptations to their home.
- Get rehabilitation

- Access support for those around you
As a personal injury or medical negligence victim you are often the central focus throughout your recovery, but supporting loved ones is also just as important. Local social services, charities and support networks can help. Novum Law can point you in the right direction.
