NOTE: The JSB Guidelines for personal injury claim valuation were established in 1992 to help establish guidelines for consistency in personal claims valuations. Prior to the JSB Guidelines being established, it was up to each individual judge to determine the value of a claim which lead to huge discrepancies between similar claims. Since the establishment of the JSB Guidelines, solicitors, judges and victims have had more standard values to use when determining compensation amounts.

Medical Negligence Compensation

The amount of medical negligence compensation awarded in any situation will depend upon how it has affected your life, the chances of recovery, the treatment required and many other factors.

Personal Injury Compensation Amounts

"How much compensation will I get for my personal injury claim?” is one of the first the first questions that our clients want to know the answer to. It isn’t always easy to say how much! A lot depends on the type of injury, how long it will take for the injury to get better and the effect that it has on your work, home an social life. You can use our compensation calculator to work out roughly what you will receive. When we deal with your personal injury claim we also make sure that you get compensation for loss of earnings, medical expenses, damaged property and other out of pocket expenses.
