Injury Compensation Types
Injury Damages Compensation Specialist
Types of Injury Compensation
If an injury claim is successful a Claimant can expect to receive two principal elements of compensation (“general damages” and “special damages”) although there are other “heads of loss” that may apply to particular circumstances.
Special Damages Compensation
Special damages compensate an accident victim for quantifiable losses such as loss of earnings or care, medical and travel costs.
General Damages Compensation
General damages are meant to compensate a victim for pain, suffering and loss of amenity. This award is calculated by reference to guidelines called the Judicial College’s Guidelines for the Assessment of General Damages as well as previous Court awards that have been made. The guidelines provide broad brackets which suggest the likely figure. Ultimately the Court’s discretion is used to make an award if an agreement cannot be reached.

Thank you for your letter enclosing the cheque in settlement of my claim. I should like to thank you and your staff for all your help, advice and hard work in reaching this conclusion which you have made the least painful part of the whole episode.

Dear Marc, I have been extremely satisfied with the service that you provided. From my first telephone conversation with you to the last one, I had every confidence in your ability to fight my case successfully. (testimonial made for Marc Folgate at Scrivenger Seabrook)
J McVeigh – West Midlands
Dear Marc, many thanks for your cheque and an excellent outcome. Had the defence offered me half that amount at the beginning I would have taken it! You were very skilful; towards the end I thought we would go to court – and I would have gone. (testimonial made for Marc Folgate at Scrivenger Seabrook)
