What our Southampton clients say about us:

“Alan Jolliffe took on my claim and I can’t thank him enough for all he has done for me. He explained every step of the way what we had to do, and it wasn’t as stressful as I thought it would be. A year on, and thanks to Alan and Novum Law, I have won my case. I am so glad I made that phone call.”

“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. 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 mum’s 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.”

What is the time limit for a road accident claim?

Generally, you will have three years from the date of your accident to claim road traffic accident compensation. There are a few exceptions, for instance, if you are claiming on behalf of a child or a person who lacks mental capacity.

If you are claiming on behalf of a child, you have until they turn 18 years old to make a claim. When they turn 18 years old, they can make a claim for themselves until they turn 21 years old.

If you are making a claim for someone who lacks mental capacity, for example, someone with a brain injury, there are no time limits for road traffic accident claims.

Do I have to go to court to make a traffic accident claim?

Many road traffic accident claims can be settled without going to Court. In this scenario, our solicitors can reduce stress and settle claims more quickly.

In some cases, a defendant may fail to accept liability or disagree with the compensation amount. Under these circumstances, our team in Southampton can help you to go to Court to reach a settlement.

I’m unhappy with my solicitor, can I transfer my road traffic accident claim to Novum Law?

We are often contacted by people who have started a car accident compensation claim with another firm but are not happy with the results. This may be because the claim is taking too long, or they are not satisfied with the value of the compensation they have been offered.

If you have started a road traffic accident claim with a different firm and are not happy with the results, our team can give you a second opinion. We have successfully taken on many claims from other firms and have plenty of experience in settling claims and securing high settlements.
