How much does it cost to claim?
To get your head injury claim up and running, we do not require our Grimsby 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 fees are mostly paid by the insurers of the negligent party, who may be the insurers of the 3rd party driver responsible for the accident, your employer’s employers liability insurance policy or the public liability insurance policy of the land owner responsible for your head injury.

How much can I claim for?
This is one of the most common questions we are asked by new clients and is a difficult question to answer as there are many factors that need to be taken into account, which include:
- The type of head injury you have sustained
- The severity of your head injury
- How long you take to recover
- If you suffered any financial losses, such as loss of earnings
- The cost of long term care or whether any changes are required to your home to cope with your injuries.
Compensation guidelines for head injuries
The actual amount of compensation you could expect to receive for the pain and suffering caused by your injuries are 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, which was 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 head injury solicitors are also able to claim for special damages, which include loss of earnings claims (past and future) 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 head injury claim is different and with so many legal complexities to consider, it is vital that you instruct solicitors who have the necessary expertise and experience to deal with your claim.
How long do I have to make a head injury claim?
In personal injury claims in England and Wales, claimants have 3 years from the date of an accident in which to start a claim for compensation, which is why we always recommend you do not delay in seeking legal advice, to ensure your potential claim does not fall outside of this 3 year claim period.
