Financial Compensation

Financial compensation awards are reviewed, assessed and set by the Judicial College, the guidelines include tables that set out compensation for specific injury or conditions. Financial compensation awards are calculated based on the severity and long term impact of your injury or condition.

General damages are awarded to you to compensate you for pain, suffering and loss of amenity. Special damages might be awarded to you for loss of earnings, travel expenses, medical treatment, home or vehicle adaptation.

Our team will discuss the likely level of compensation and our valuation of your claim based on our experience as your case progresses.

The below table contains guidelines for specific claim types from the 15th edition of the Judicial College Guidelines for the Assessment of General Damages in Personal Injury Cases.  Each case is valued according to its own merits, the Guidelines can be departed from if the case circumstances so require.   The mildest form of each condition will attract lower figures compared to the most severe.
