No idea, I don't know how much my solicitor got either bu I believe that thy make a claim for expenses separately to what I got. Just ask the person to email you with the figures.

Please don't count on receiving what they say the claim is for. There are a few of us that had massive amounts on the paperwork that was argued and shrunk over time.

You will need help with looking after your money so get Independant advise. I gave a lot of mine away to people because it meant nothing to me and they needed it. It was taken away after I did that.

They shouldn't take a percentage of your claim. If you contact the Headway team they will be able to give you some advice.

The only thing I would suggest is to use a firm that has a specialist Brain injury team. I started off with a local solicitor and it didn't take long before I realised they were out of their depth. I went to a larger firm and they dealt with the original solicitor to get my case moved - so easy

I would ask the local authority adult services for help paying for assistants to help you. Ask about having an assessment for you and also a careers assessment for your sister.

All the best
