Suffering a personal injury can leave you living with a lot of pain and emotional trauma, as well as potentially affecting your ability to live your life as you did before your injuries. It is also common for there to be a significant financial impact, including medical and care expenses, as well as lost income if you are unable to especially if you are the main ‘bread winner’ within your household.

Claiming personal injury compensation can make a real difference.

If your injuries were caused by someone else’s negligence or deliberate action, you are likely entitled to compensation. This can cover your financial costs, as well as going some way towards making amends for what you have suffered.

Our approach to personal injury claims in Salisbury

No obligation consultation

You will be offered a free, no obligation first appointment with one of our personal injury solicitors to discuss your claim. This will normally take place by phone or videoconferencing, but we can also work via email if you prefer.

This will be your chance to talk to us about your injuries, how they happened and the impact on your life. We will then tell you whether we think your claim justifies further investigation and give an indication of the level of compensation you may be entitled to.

We will also explain exactly how the claims process works and the next steps you need to take if you wish to move forward with a claim.

No Win No Fee personal injury claims funding

All of the personal injury claims our firm takes on are funded through Conditional Fee Agreements (CFAs). You may be more familiar with this under the name ‘No Win No Fee’ funding.

With a No Win No Fee personal injury claim, you do not have to pay anything upfront to start a claim and our fees will only be applied should we win compensation for you. A key benefit of this approach is that there is no financial risk to you in making a claim.

Proving that you are entitled to personal injury compensation

To show that you are entitled to compensation for a personal injury, it is necessary to prove that someone else is at fault for the injuries you suffered.

Generally, this will be because you were injured due to someone else’s negligence (e.g. because your employer failed to provide a safe working environment) or by their deliberate action (e.g. if you are injured in a criminal assault).

Our personal injury solicitors in Salisbury have been winning these types of cases for many years, so know exactly what is required for a strong claim, including all of the different types of evidence that can be called upon. This means you can be confident that we will put together the strongest possible evidence base for your claim.

Calculating the value of your personal injury compensation claim

Finding out how much compensation you are owed is, of course, very important. We will give a realistic estimate of the likely damages available at the outset, but part of the claims process will involve assessing your situation and working out exactly what you can claim.

This 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). 

Time limits for personal injury compensation claims

The standard time limit for a personal injury claim is three years from the ‘date of knowledge’. This is the date on which you were first aware that:

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

The date of knowledge may be the date on which your injuries occurred (if you were immediately aware that someone else was to blame) or weeks, months or even years later, depending on the circumstances.

There are also various exceptions to the standard time limit where you may have longer to claim e.g. if the injured party was under the age of 18.

Settling a personal injury claim out of court

Wherever possible, our Salisbury personal injury lawyers will seek a voluntary settlement of your claim with the defendant or their insurers and their legal team. A negotiated settlement can allow you to get maximum compensation while avoiding court proceedings. It can also make the whole process much less stressful for you.

Taking your personal injury compensation claim to court

In the unlikely event that your claim does need to go to court, we will ensure you have the very best representation. We know that this can be a stressful time, so to combat this, we will talk you through exactly what you need to do and what to expect, giving you close, personal support every step of the way.

Transferring your personal injury claim to Novum Law from another firm

We often hear from people who have been represented by another firm and are not happy with their experience. Typically, this is because they feel the claims process is taking too long or that they feel their claim has been under settled.

Our personal injury solicitors in Salisbury are always happy to offer an independent second opinion. We will give an honest assessment of whether we believe your claim has been mishandled and will be pleased to provide new representation where appropriate.

In previous cases where our team have taken over personal injury claims from other firms, we have been able to secure significantly higher settlements and/or get compensation faster for our clients.
