The majority of personal injury claims are calculated in two parts:-

  1. General Damages

This award is intended to reflect the injury or injuries involved, and the resulting pain and suffering endured.

Each and every case is different, and injuries can affect individuals in very different ways, and for differing periods of time.

Set out below are some illustrations of compensatory awards which we reproduce from the Judicial Studies Board Guidelines.

Bear in mind that they are only indications of the brackets in which an award may fall, and we will need to discuss in detail your particular circumstances.

  1. Special Damages

In addition to award an award of General Damages victims of accidents may also seek special damages, intended to compensate them for any past or future loss of earnings, specific expenses incurred as a consequence of an accident, and additional care or property modification costs or equipment that may be necessary as some time in the future.

We understand how accidents can wreck lives. No amount of money will ever compensate what has happened. However, we have the specialist skills and experience to help you calculate what your claim is properly worth. We will also help ensure that you are not fobbed off and that the compensation that you are entitled to is indeed paid over to you.
