Guidelines for the Assessment of General Damages in Personal Injury Cases

Overview

The Guidelines for the Assessment of General Damages in Personal Injury Cases are designed to provide a clear and logical framework for the assessment of damages in personal injury cases. The first edition of this title was regarded as a landmark in personal injury practice. Each succeeding issue has built on this reputation and the book has now firmly established itself as essential reading for all those involved in the area of personal injury litigation. This new edition has been fully updated to take into account inflation since the last edition as well as reflect decisions of the higher courts on quantum. It also retains the column of figures appropriate to those few remaining claims, still coming before the courts, in which the 10% uplift in general damages recommended by Sir Rupert Jackson and endorsed by the Court of Appeal in Simmons v Castle [2012] EWCA Civ 1288 does not apply.As with previous editions, all judges involved in hearing personal injury cases will automatically receive a copy of the book.

Reviews

You and your practice need this guide if you are involved in any aspect of personal injury work. We hope that other suitable guides will be published by the Judicial College and OUP in the future (for instance, online courts) because they make our working lives much easier as practitioners and they are a boon for unrepresented parties as well. * Elizabeth Taylor & Phillip Taylor MBE, Richmond Green Chambers * The work has become essential for practitioners and now I would not dream of advising on a personal injury matter without referring to the JSB Guidelines first. * Middlesex Law Society: The Bill of Middlesex * Review from previous edition Reviews from previous edition - As all judges involved in hearing personal injury cases will automatically receive a copy of this book, it would seem obvious that no personal injury lawyer should be without it. Certainly for anyone professionally involved in calculating quantum, the purchase of this slim and succinct volume should be considered a necessity. * Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers *
