How much compensation can you claim?
Every claim for personal injury is different and the value of each claim is dependent on the type of injury you have sustained, the severity of your symptoms, how long it takes you to recover and whether you have suffered any financial loss due to the accident.
The amount of compensation you can claim is based on a set of national guidelines and some example claim amounts set out below are based on these Judicial College Guidelines, with the latest set being published at the end of 2019.
- 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
- A serious disabling elbow injury – £33,430 to £46,780
- Serious hand injury with significant loss of use of the hand – £23,110 to £49,350
- A serious HAVS/VWF syndrome injury – £26,990 to £32,780
- Serious neck injury involving fractures or damage to discs – £52,390 to £104,370
- Minor permanent damage to vision in one or both eyes – £18,880 to £31,320
*Every injury claim for compensation is different and your claim may be worth more or less than these figures quoted. These guidelines are purely used for illustrative purposes.
As well as claiming compensation for the pain and suffering you have sustained due to your injury, our solicitors are also able to help you claim for “special damages”, which include any loss of earnings you may have suffered and the costs associated with long term care and rehabilitation.
Special damages can increase the value of a personal injury claim by hundreds of thousands of pounds and in some cases, millions of pounds.

Free consultations to Louth clients
Our injury solicitors in Louth Lincolnshire offer all new clients a free initial claim consultation.
During our initial call we ask in detail about how and when the accident happened, the injuries sustained, the recovery and rehabilitation and information relating to employers. We may also require to see medical records, which we will request on our client’s behalf, from their GP or consultant.
Once we have a clear picture of the accident circumstances and have reviewed medical records, if we believe that a potential claim has good prospects of success then we will offer to represent clients on a No Win No Fee basis.
Claim time limits
In the majority of personal injury cases, there is a 3 year time limit from the date of the accident or medical diagnosis to the date of making a claim.
This 3 year claim period, also commonly referred to as a “limitation period”, can also start from the date that you first linked your injury symptoms with your accident or work, so it’s vital you contact us as soon as possible to start your claim.
If you are unsure if you can claim due to the time elapsed since your accident, contact Nigel Askew Solicitors today, we will be happy to discuss your claim circumstances and advise you whether you are still able to make a claim.
