The solicitors at Nigel Askew have a proven track record of success and are passionate about helping the people of Lincoln and the surrounding areas claim the compensation that they deserve.

How much does it cost to claim?
To get your head injury claim up and running, we do not require our Lincoln based clients to pay us any upfront fees.
Instead, we offer our services by 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 shoulder 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 other fees are paid by the insurers of the negligent party.
If you would like to discuss how we fund our head injury claims, contact us today, we will be happy to help you.
Compensation amounts for brain injuries
The amount of compensation you can expect to receive for a brain injury claim depends on a number of different factors, including the severity of your injuries.
The actual amount that you are able to claim for your pain and suffering is based on a set of national guidelines and fall into bands.
The figures below are based on figures published in the 15th edition of the Judicial College Guidelines for the assessment of damages in personal injury cases, published in November 2019.
- Very severe brain damage – £224,800 to £322,060
- Moderately severe brain damage – £174,620 to £224,800
- Moderate brain damage – £34,330 to £174,620
- Minor brain or head injury – £1,760 to £10,180
In addition to damages for the pain and suffering of your injury, our Lincoln brain injury solicitors are also able to claim for special damages, which includes claims for loss of earnings and medical care. These special damages often make up a large percentage of the total claim value, which in some cases are valued at several million pounds.
Every brain injury claim is different and at such an early stage of a claim, it’s very difficult to quantify. Rest assured, our Lincoln brain injury solicitors will work as hard as we can to maximise the amount of compensation you are awarded for your personal injury claim.
How long do I have to make a brain injury claim?
In England and Wales, the law states that you have 3 years from the date of an accident in which to start a claim for compensation.
We recommend you do not delay in seeking legal advice, to ensure your potential claim does not fall outside of this 3 year claim period.
