Special damages in Personal Injury Claims

Compensation in personal injury cases is made up of two different types of loss, being “general damages” and “specials damages”. “General damages” relate to receiving monies for pain, suffering and loss of amenity (compensation) which has arisen from your physical and/or psychological suffering due to the accident. Since each accident and Claimant are unique, no precise value can be ascribed to such loss. In essence, this is a touchy-feely loss which is either agreed with a compensator in amount or decided by a judge taking into account all of the facts of the case.

Mediation in personal injury claims

Many people may think that once a claim is made, either it can only be settled by the parties’ legal representatives or the claim has to go to Court and be decided upon by a Judge. If a case does go trial, this will often be several years after the accident. Clearly, this can be a long and stressful time for clients. Quite often, no agreement can be reached between the parties’ legal representatives. In such circumstances, going all the way to trial is not the only option.
