Amount of Compensation
In order to promote consistency and
assist the courts, personal injury solicitors
and other advisers, the Judicial Studies Board
publish a set of guidelines for the level of injury
awards for a broad range of injuries. The information,
which follows, has been taken from those guidelines.
Whilst the guidelines are very useful and provide a good
general indicator of the level of damages which may be
paid, it should be remembered that no two cases are ever
the same and general damage claims for injuries
resulting from accidents will always reflect the
individual circumstances of the particular in dividual
and the injuries he or she has suffered and claims will
be assessed accordingly.
