Personal Injury Solicitors in Cardiff

If you have suffered a personal injury, you may be living with a huge impact to your life and the lives of your loved ones. As well as damage to your health, pain and the emotional impact, you may also be unable to work or take part in other activities you previously enjoyed. Claiming compensation can make a real difference.

Where your injuries were caused by someone else’s negligence or deliberate action, you will likely be owed compensation. This can pay for medical costs, counselling and special equipment, as well as replacing lost income and compensating you for your pain and suffering.

At Novum Law, our team of specialist personal injury lawyers work with clients all over the country, helping them to claim the compensation they deserve. We know how scary and confusing this can all seem, but we want to make getting compensation as simple and stress-free as possible for you.

Our personal injury lawyers in Cardiff will work closely with you, providing sensitive personal support every step of the way.  We will listen to you, demystify any legal jargon and explain the process. We can quickly assess your claim and tell you if we believe you have strong grounds for a claim and how much compensation you may be owed.

We offer No Win No Fee funding, meaning you can make a personal injury compensation claim with no financial risk or hidden costs.

Our team is highly effective at negotiating maximum settlements for personal injury claims, meaning court proceedings are usually not needed. This can save you time, as well as making the claims process much less stressful.

Although there are some exceptions, there is a standard time limit of three years for most types of personal injury claims, so please do not delay finding out whether you are entitled to claim.

How we handle personal injury claims in Cardiff

Free initial consultation

To help get the claims process started, we offer a free initial chat with one of our specialist personal injury solicitors. This is usually held over the phone or via videoconferencing, but we are happy to work via email as well if you prefer.

In this first conversation, we will ask you about how you were injured and the impact on your life. We will then give our opinion on whether we think you have grounds for a claim and how much you might be entitled to.

We’ll also explain more about how the claims process works, your funding options and what happens next.

No Win No Fee personal injury claims funding

We fund all of our personal injury claims using Conditional Fee Agreements (CFAs), often referred to as ‘No Win No Fee’ funding.

The way a No Win, No Free personal injury claim works is that you do not pay to start a claim, with our fees only being applied if we succeed in winning compensation for you. This means there is no financial risk to you in starting a claim.

Determining whether you are owed personal injury compensation

To get your claim off the ground, we must show that your injuries were caused by someone else’s negligence (e.g. your employer failing to provide a safe working environment) or deliberate action (e.g. if you were assaulted).

Our personal injury solicitors in Cardiff know exactly how to build robust cases, having been doing this for clients for many years. We will ensure all of the various types of evidence needed are collected and analysed effectively, with no detail missed. This will help you to have the strongest possible claim and the best chance of an early resolution.

Valuing your personal injury compensation claim

Working out how much compensation you are owed is the next step. This is sometimes referred to as ‘assessing quantum’ or ‘assessing quantum of damages’.

The level of personal injury compensation available will be based on:

  • Financial costs you have incurred (e.g. medical bills, rehabilitation costs, care and support fees, lost earnings, cost of getting to and from medical appointments etc.)
  • The non-financial impact of injuries (e.g. pain and suffering, loss of amenity etc).

Time limits for personal injury compensation claims

You will normally have three years from the ‘date of knowledge’ to make a claim. This is the date on which you were aware that:

  1. You had suffered an injury.
  2. Someone else was to blame.

The date of knowledge can be weeks, months or even years after the actual injury occurred, so this can have a big impact on how long you have to claim. In some cases, a longer time limit may apply, e.g. if the claimant is under the age of 18.

Settling a personal injury claim out of court

We settle the vast majority of our cases through negotiation with the defendant and their legal team. This allows us to get maximum compensation for our clients faster and with lower legal fees compared to court proceedings, as well as making the process less stressful.

Taking your personal injury compensation claim to court

Where court proceedings are needed, we have a strong track record of success. We will ensure your case is prepared effectively and that you have the best possible representation, giving you the best chance of securing maximum compensation.

Transferring your personal injury claim to Novum Law from another firm

All too often, we hear from people who have started a claim with another firm and are unhappy with the results. Most commonly, people are concerned that the claims process is taking too long, they are unhappy with the solicitors and the service they provide, or they are unhappy with the amount of compensation secured.

We are always happy to provide an independent second opinion and will be completely honest about whether or not we believe we could do better.

We have achieved good results on numerous occasions after taking over personal injury claims from other firms. Our team is often able to get a significantly higher settlement and/or secure compensation faster.
