Louise joined Novum Law in 2012 and specialises in helping clients who have suffered serious personal injuries – particularly those with traumatic brain injuries due to road traffic and workplace accidents. The cases she works on are often very complex and involve significant damages.
Louise prides herself on having a warm rapport with her clients and their families. She develops excellent relationships with those who are going through what can be, the most distressing time in their lives, and is a lifeline for them. She is committed to ensuring they are fully supported and advised throughout the compensation process.
Louise has extensive experience investigating cases where liability has been denied. She frequently secures funding through encouraging Defendants to engage in the Rehabilitation Code and securing early interim payments to pay for specialist rehabilitation, care and support packages to aid her client’s recovery. She has a strong track record of securing substantial compensation payments.
She also has experience representing clients against the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) and the Motor Insurers’ Bureau (MIB), both through their uninsured and un-traced driver schemes.
Louise works with highly regarded and respected medicolegal experts and barristers to ensure that her client’s have the best legal team advising them throughout their claim.
“You have always been incredible: supportive, kind and extremely wise. Thank you, thank you…We won’t miss the case, but we will miss you!” – Former client’s wife
“…was a god send. They fought my case for 5 years, turning over every stone to help me. Not only were they super professional but also super supportive throughout…” – Former client
“I would like to thank Louise and Novum Law, for the effort, dedication and work done in achieving the results and outcome of my case way beyond my expectation. This is something for which I am extremely grateful and appreciative of. The efficiency and professionalism displayed while handling my claim put my mind at ease and confirmed that my decision to transfer my case from a local solicitor to a professional, dedicated and focussed one, with the knowledge and willingness to handle brain injuries, was the correct one. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending the services of Novum Law and Louise Gardner for anyone who wants to make a personal injury compensation claim.”
