Calculating your Compensation

The above amounts are the compensation scales for general damages as extracted from official figures found in The Judicial Studies Board, Guidelines for the assessment of general damages in Personal Injury Cases, 10th Edition, Oxford University Press.

The figures do not include calculations for any special damages. Special damages compensate you for any quantifiable monetary losses sustained through your accident. For example, cost of any hire vehicles, cost of any accomodation or special care, repair or replacement of damaged property, lost earnings (both historically and in the future), loss of irreplaceable items, additional domestic costs, and so on.

Special damages can include direct losses such as amounts you have had to spend to try to limit the impact of your losses and consequential losses resulting from any lost income for example.
