Trusted Injury Compensation Solicitors in Lincolnshire
If you have sustained an injury in a non-fault accident within the last 3 years, or have developed a serious medical condition through no fault of your own, our solicitors can advise you on a personal injury claim.
There are strict time limits in place to consider when making a personal injury claim, which is usually 3 years from the date of the accident or from the date of diagnosis, or from the date you first linked your symptoms with exposure to the cause of your medical condition, which could be noise, asbestos, vibration, chemicals or dust.

What is my claim worth?
The amount of injury compensation you can expect to receive is dependent on a number of different factors including the type of accident you have been involved in, the extent of your injuries, whether you have been unable to work as a result of your injuries and how long it takes you to make a full recovery, if ever.
When deciding how much compensation to claim from a negligent party, solicitors in England & Wales generally rely on the Judicial College Guidelines for the Assessment of General Damages in Personal Injury. These are a set of national guidelines which outline the value of specific injuries and categorise them into bands, based on the severity of injuries.
For example, a back injury at work could result in compensation between £6,000 and £20,000, depending on the severity of the injury.
The Judicial College Guidelines sets the maximum general damages amount at £337,700 for injuries which result in severe brain trauma or paralysis. Compensation awards which amount to several million pounds are mostly made up of special damages which are paid on top of the above figures.

What are special damages?
Special damages can make up a large proportion of the total compensation award in a claim for personal injury.
Special damages refer to financial losses and expenses incurred as result of an accident, which may include past, present or future loss of earnings, medical and rehabilitation costs.
How we fund our injury compensation claims
We fund our injury compensation claims using Conditional Fee Agreements. These agreements are commonly referred to as either a “CFA” or a “No Win No Fee agreement”.
The nature of these agreements means that law firms take all the financial risk and not the client. If a claim fails, the law firm is not paid and the client does not have to pay any solicitor’s fees for their time. For taking this risk, it is common for law firms to agree with a client that they will be paid a % of the client’s compensation award at the end of a successful claim.
Our fees are mostly paid by the insurers of the negligent party and we do not require our clients to pay any upfront fees to get a claim up and running.
