On trains we see multiple posters plastered up and down the carriages reading “Delayed train? Your compensation isn’t far away”. A news story last week claimed that not enough people know they are entitled to compensation for delayed flights. We are actively encouraged to claim redress for being late. 

Yet people who are injured by someone else’s careless driving, who must take time out of work, go through physical pain, and endure the impact on family and social life, are often derided for having the nerve to claim compensation. A three-hour flight delay is apparently worth £505. Personal injury reforms mean that three months of pain from a soft tissue injury will be ‘worth’ just £235. It is completely unfair and unacceptable that being late is taken more seriously than being injured needlessly. Bear in mind this is not about mistakes or mishaps, these are injuries which should never happen.

Rod Dutton is our contact for personal injury cases and is a Fellow of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL).



Survivors of historical child sexual abuse face an unfair, often unbeatable, legal hurdle to claim compensation for their suffering, lawyers have told the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse (IICSA).

It's Save the Children Christmas jumper day for our Wimborne office today.


Jacobs & Reeves are pleased to announce they have secured meeting rooms at The Spire, High Street Poole.

This is to enable ground floor access for all of our clients.  The room is situated on the ground floor and  the building is also wheelchair friendly.

Our iconic listed building offices at 153 High Street unfortunately does not allow us to make any adaptions or changes to avoid the many steps to get into  both the rear and front entrances of the building.

With our new meeting room now located in The Spire it has already proved very popular with both existing  and new clients.

It is a 2 minute walk from our offices in Poole High Street.

Please mention when calling the office that you would like to arrange an appointment with us to take place at The Spire and we can ensure that booking is made for you.

All future follow up appointments can also take place at The Spire.
