A personal injury can have a huge impact on your life. It is not just the pain and trauma, but also the financial consequences for you and your family that must be taken into account, especially if you are the main earner. In many cases, there will be significant changes to your lifestyle and ability to carry out normal activities which can be devastating for your overall quality of life.

Claiming personal injury compensation can make a real difference.

At Novum Law, we are dedicated personal injury claims specialists. If you were injured due to someone else’s negligence or deliberate action, it is likely that you will be owed compensation. This can cover your financial costs and also compensate you for any other consequences for your health, wellbeing and lifestyle.

Our approach to personal injury claims in Plymouth

Free no obligation consultation

So that you can find out if you may be owed compensation, how much and how the claims process works, we offer a free no obligation first appointment with one of our personal injury solicitors. This is usually by phone or videoconferencing, but we can also answer your questions by email if you prefer.

No Win No Fee personal injury claims funding

Every personal injury claim we take on is funded by a Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA), which you may have heard referred to as ‘No Win No Fee’ funding.

With a No Win No Fee personal injury claim, there are no upfront costs for you to pay and you will only need to cover our fees if we win compensation for you. This removes any financial risk from the process of making a personal injury claim.

Proving that you are entitled to personal injury compensation

To have a claim for personal injury compensation, it must be possible to prove that someone else was either fully or partially responsible for your injuries.

We will need to collect evidence that shows your injuries were caused by someone else’s negligence (e.g. an employer failing in their legal duty to ensure a safe working environment) or by deliberate action (e.g. injuries caused by a criminal assault).

Our personal injury solicitors in Plymouth have many years of successful claims behind us, so know exactly how to build a strong claim, including what supporting evidence is needed. You can therefore be confident that your case will be put together the right way to maximise your chances of receiving full compensation for your injuries.

Calculating the value of your personal injury compensation claim

The level of damages available will depend on the impact of your personal injury. We will provide a realistic estimate of the potential damages during your initial consultation, but working out the exact level of damages is a key part of the claims process.

The process of valuing a personal injury claims is known as ‘assessing quantum’ or ‘assessing quantum of damages’.

In general, you can claim personal injury compensation for:

  • Financial costs – both that you have incurred to date and that you expect to incur in the future (e.g. medical bills, rehabilitation costs, care and support fees, loss of earnings etc.)
  • The non-financial impact of your injuries – (e.g. pain and suffering, loss of amenity etc).

Find out more about how we calculate compensation.

Time limits for personal injury compensation claims

As standard, you will have three years to claim personal injury compensation. This is counted from the ‘date of knowledge’, which is the date on which you were first aware that:

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

In some cases, the date of knowledge will be when your injuries occurred, but it can also be weeks, months or even years later, depending on the circumstances.

In some circumstances, you will have longer than the standard time limit e.g. if the injured party was under the age of 18. Our team will be happy to discuss this with you during your initial consultation.

Settling a personal injury claim out of court

In almost all cases, our Plymouth personal injury lawyers are able to negotiate settlements with the defendant or their insurers and their legal team. This can allow you to get maximum compensation without the need for court proceedings, which can make the process faster and less stressful.

Taking your personal injury compensation claim to court

In some rare cases, it is necessary to take a claim to court to secure fair compensation. Should this prove to be the case, we will ensure you have the very best representation and will provide close personal support during what, we recognise, can be a challenging time.

Transferring your personal injury claim to Novum Law from another firm

All too often, we are contacted by people who have been pursuing a claim with another firm and who are not happy with their experience. Common complaints include that the claims process is taking too long or that a claim has been under settled.

Our personal injury solicitors in Plymouth are happy to offer an independent second opinion, giving you an honest assessment of whether we believe your claim has been mishandled.

Where we believe we can provide a better outcome, we are available to take over your case and have a track record of securing significantly higher settlements and/or getting compensation faster for our clients when taking over claims from other firms.
