Compensation

Compensation cannot fix everything but it can help victims of accidents and their families to rebuild their lives.

As a claim proceeds we often secure interim payments. These can help with care, aids, equipment, therapies and visits by loved ones, which can be an invaluable part of the rehabilitation process.

We know that it can seem like you are alone when you are making a claim. With us, the opposite is true, because we are right by your side.

Personal Injury Payouts

Compensation Payouts

Head injuries rarely occur without other physical injuries so the amount of compensation a person receives can vary widely depending on the specific circumstances of their case. There are many factors that must be taken into account but some of these include:

  • The nature and severity of the injury or injuries
  • The amount of rehabilitation required
  • The extent of any long term disabilities and costs of future needs
  • Any psychological damage
  • Loss of Earnings past or future

If you have sustained a personal injury that was someone else’s fault, you should always seek the advice of experts who will assess your case on its merits. You will be compensated for losses that arise from the injury in addition to the pain and suffering caused by the injury. As a guide you could expect to receive the following amount for the injury itself.

  • Facial disfigurement: up to £78,650
  • Partial damage to hearing or tinnitus: up to £36,850
  • Post Traumatic Stress Disorder: £3,190 to 81,400
  • Moderately Severe Psychiatric Damage:£15,400 to £44,330
  • Severe Psychiatric Damage: £44,330 to £93,500
  • Epilepsy: £19,300 to £121,330

Recent Claims

John, a motorcyclist who crashed into a van that pulled out in front of him, has been awarded more than £9.5 million in compensation. John’s motorcycle hit the van with huge force, leaving him with serious brain damage and other injuries.

John now has to use a wheelchair and suffers from speech impairment, meaning that he needs constant care. John’s compensation will help to buy a home that is specially designed to cater for his needs and employ a team of carers around the clock.

John’s Litigation Friend said “in a case of this nature, the individual can easily be forgotten, but Davey Law always made sure that our son’s needs were at the forefront and even though we have reached a settlement they continue to show their caring and compassionate nature in enquiring after our son’s wellbeing.

We feel very content and grateful to have had the services of Davey Law and in particular Mark Tawn and Isobel Addison throughout the litigation and would happily recommend Davey Law…”.

Davey Law continue to support John and his family in managing the compensation payment through the Court of Protection.


Ivan was knocked off his bicycle by a speeding van and sustained life-changing brain injuries and was forced to give up work and leave his home.

Ivan was awarded £2.9 million gross which he is now using to rebuild his life with the help and support of his financial deputies at Davey Law.

Sarah was seriously injured when crossing the road when she misjudged the speed of an approaching car and ran out in front of it.

Despite Sarah being primarily responsible for her accident Davey Law believed that Sarah was not entirely to blame. After a long battle the severity of her injuries was such that Sarah was awarded £1.5 million in compensation.

Sarah will need to make this comparatively small award work very hard to sustain her in the long-term and Davey Law continue to assist Sarah with managing her compensation to maximise her return to facilitate her rehabilitation.
