Personal Injury Solicitors in Swindon

Suffering a serious personal injury can have a devastating effect on your life and the lives of those closest to you. Where the injury was caused by someone else’s negligence or deliberate action, it can make living with the consequences particularly upsetting. But, if someone else was at fault, it may mean you are owed compensation.

At Novum Law, we understand that people often find the thought of making a personal injury claim challenging especially when you are already dealing with the impact of your injuries. However, we make it our mission to keep the claims process straightforward, doing the hard work for you and removing much of the stress from pursuing compensation for your injuries.

Our dedicated team of personal injury lawyers in Swindon are here for you. Providing sensitive personal support from the outset, 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.

With an excellent track record of negotiating maximum settlements for personal injury claims, we can usually  get compensation for our clients without court proceedings. This can make the claims process much faster and less stressful.

You typically have only three years to make a personal injury claim, so please do not delay if you think you may be entitled to compensation.

How we handle personal injury claims in Swindon

Free initial consultation

We offer a free first chat with one of our specialist personal injury solicitors over the phone or via videoconferencing. We can also work via email if you prefer.

This will be your chance to tell us how you were injured and the impact on your life. We can then advise you whether we think you may have grounds for a claim, how the claims process works and what you need to do 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.

With a No Win No Fee personal injury claim you will only need to pay our fees if we succeed in winning compensation for you. This means there is no financial risk to you in making a claim.

Find out more about No Win No Fee funding.

Determining whether you are owed personal injury compensation

The first step in the claims process is proving 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 Swindon know exactly how to build robust cases, drawing on the various types of evidence available to give you the best foundation for your claim.

Valuing your personal injury compensation claim

Calculating how much compensation you are owed is a vital step in the personal injury claims process. It is often 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 etc.)
  • The non-financial impact of 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 aware that:

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

As the date of knowledge often comes weeks, months or even years after the actual injury occurred, this can significantly affect how long you have to claim. There are also certain circumstances where the claim time limit may be longer, e.g. if the claimant is under the age of 18.

Settling a personal injury claim out of court

In the vast majority of cases, we can secure maximum compensation for our clients through negotiation with the defendant and their legal team. This allows you to avoid the stress and uncertainty of court proceedings, as well as generally being a much faster and less costly approach.

Taking your personal injury compensation claim to court

Should court proceedings be required, it is critical that you have the best possible representation. Our team will ensure you understand exactly how the court process works, what to expect and the likely outcomes. We will prepare your case effectively and secure you expert representation for any hearings that take place.

Transferring your personal injury claim to Novum Law from another firm

We hear from many people who have started a claim with another firm and are unhappy with their solicitor or the progress of their claim. This is often because the claims process is taking too long or the amount of compensation secured is lower than the client was expecting.

In such cases, we will be happy to provide an independent second opinion. Our personal injury solicitors in Swindon can tell you whether we believe your case has been mishandled and can provide fresh representation for you where appropriate.

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