“We would like to thank Novum Law for taking on my claim against my former employer, but a special thanks goes to Alan Jolliffe whose professionalism and friendliness guided us through the process and brought it to a more than successful conclusion. I thoroughly recommend Novum Law.”
“We can’t thank Alison enough for her hard work and dedication to our case, especially being such a sensitive matter to our family. She was professional and understanding at the same time. Thank you.”
“What is most important to us, however, is not the compensation, as no amount of money can ever replace our father, but that as a result of what happened to dad a body of evidence has been created and if dad’s circumstances can help another family that would bring us some comfort.”
“My mum and I would really like to thank Alison for all her hard work on our behalf. She guided us through a claim which required so much time and research that we would never have been able to do it on our own. She was particularly sensitive to mums needs at such a sad time. I can’t thank her enough.”
“Alison at Novum Law kept me well informed at every stage and dealt with the case in a compassionate, considerate manner even when the coronavirus pandemic changed our whole way of working and managing our affairs. The whole family are grateful for the support throughout what was a difficult time.”
“I have received an excellent level of service and was kept fully informed of all elements of the process with a very satisfactory outcome. My case was dealt with by Alison Sayers, who acted in a professional and compassionate manner with an excellent understanding of this asbestos-related disease, which resulted in a very successful claim.”
We understand that making a brain injury claim can feel daunting. For that reason, our Southampton brain injury solicitors will be with you every step of the way, making sure you aware of what needs to be done.
Your brain or head injury compensation may help with:
Our Southampton team offer a free initial meeting to start your brain or head injury compensation claim. The consultation will provide you with an opportunity to discuss exactly what led to your injury and how it has impacted your life.
From here, we can then advise on whether you will likely have grounds to claim compensation. At this point, we will also explain the claims process in more detail and give you the next steps.
In general, the standard time limit to start a personal injury claim is 3 years from the date you were injured or you were first aware that you were injured.
If you are claiming on behalf of someone who no longer has the mental capacity, there is no time limit to making a claim. Should they regain capacity in the future, the 3-year time limit is counted from this date.
If a brain or head injury is sustained by someone under 18, the 3-year time limit only takes effect from their 18th birthday and only if they have the mental capacity to make a compensation claim themselves.

Our head injury solicitors in Southampton aim to settle most cases through negotiation, which means that even the most complex and high value claims can be resolved without the need for court proceedings. This approach allows us to secure maximum compensation more efficiently and make the process much less stressful for you.
In the unlikely event that court proceedings are required to achieve a positive result, our team can also provide close personal support at every stage. We will be on hand to carefully prepare your case, secure expert hearing representation and provide emotional support.
We often hear from people who have started a brain injury compensation claim with another firm and are not satisfied with the results they have received. This may be because the claims process is taking too long, they are not happy with the service they are being provided, or they believe the compensation they have been awarded is insufficient.
Our head and brain injury solicitors in Southampton are happy to provide you with an independent second opinion about your case. We have successfully taken over medical negligence claims from other firms in the past, often securing higher settlements and accessing compensation faster.
If you think you or a loved one may be entitled to compensation, our brain and head injury solicitors in Southampton are here to support you.
