Need a Car Accident Claim Solicitor in Louth? We can help you
Lincolnshire’s network of roads are reportedly in the top 3 of the most dangerous counties in England for rates of injury and fatality in car accidents. The roads around Louth are notoriously dangerous, with the A16, A631 and A157 all considered local crash hotspots.
Every day, motorists on our roads suffer serious and in some cases life threatening injuries due to the negligence of other road users. If you have been injured in an accident that was not your fault, you may be able to claim compensation against the negligent driver’s insurance policy.
If you have sustained serious injuries and have been required to take time off work to recover, subsequently losing money then we can advise you on the prospects of a claim.
Some of the most common injuries associated with serious car accidents include:

Car Accident Claim amounts
The exact amount of financial compensation that can be claimed depends on a number of factors, including the severity of your injuries, your recovery and whether you have to live with any symptoms in the months and years after your accident.
In England & Wales, compensation awards for personal injury claims are based on a set of national guidelines called the Judicial College Guidelines. These guidelines are published for the assessment of general damages in personal injury cases.
The latest set of guidelines (the 15th edition) were published at the end of 2019. Some example guideline amounts for injuries associated with serious car accident claims are as follows:
- Serious knee injury with long term problems – £20,880 to £34,660
- Leg fractures or soft tissue injury causing some long term problems – £14,320 to £22,130
- Serious back injury causing significant permanent impact – £59,120 to £70,490
- Serious shoulder injuries that cause a weakness of grip or injury that leads to restricted shoulder movement – £8,400 to £12,600
- Serious hand injury with significant loss of use of the hand – £23,110 to £49,350
- Serious neck injury involving fractures or damage to discs – £52,390 to £104,370
- Severe back injury with spinal cord damage – £72,620 to £128,320
In addition to compensation for pain and suffering, the solicitors at Nigel Askew Solicitors are also able to help you claim for “special damages”.
These damages include any loss of past and future earnings, your pensions and medical care. Special damages often make up a very large percentage of the total claim value and in some circumstances can amount to several million pounds.
The figures quoted here are illustrative and your potential claim may be worth more or less.
