It is widely reported that the road network in Lincolnshire is one of the most dangerous in England for rates of car accidents, injuries and fatalities, with the roads around Scunthorpe and the surrounding areas such as the A15, A180 and the A159 all considered local crash hotspots.
Our team of solicitors speak to clients everyday who have been injured due to the negligence of other road users. If you have been injured in an accident that was not your fault, as either the driver or a passenger, you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation.
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 against the negligent driver’s insurance policy.
Some of the most common injuries associated with serious car accidents include:
- Serious neck and spinal injuries
- Chest and rib injuries
- Head and Brain injuries
- Broken or fractured bones, most commonly arms, legs, wrists and ankles
- Serious pelvis and hip injuries
If you have suffered any type of injury then we recommend you contact us today to discuss claiming compensation for a Scunthorpe car accident.

How much can you claim?
The exact amount of financial compensation that be claimed depends on a number of factors, including the severity of your injuries, how long you take to recover from your injuries and whether you have suffered any financial loss, such as lost wages or income.
We are able to provide guideline claim amounts, which are based on a set of published guidelines used in the assessment of personal injury claims in England and Wales.
Some example guideline amounts for injuries associated with serious car accident claims are as follows:
- 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
- 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
Please note that the figures quoted here are purely illustrative and your potential claim may be worth more or less.
In addition to any compensation you may be awarded for actual injuries associated with your car accident, our team can also help you claim for “special damages”. These damages include past or future loss of earnings as a result of not being able to work due to your injuries. These damages can make up a large percentage of the total claim value.
