Legal Resources - Amount of damages

The amount for which you can claim obviously depends on the particular circumstances of your injury but could include the following :-

Special Damages - items which can be accurately quantified eg loss of or reduction in previous earnings, costs of medical treatment , travelling expenses, loss of or damage to property, eg personal effects, insurance excess. See further.

General Damages - these would cover items such as physical injury, pain and suffering or loss of amenity, disadvantage in the labour market, reduction in quality of life. See further.

Interest - interest may be awarded on some of the compensation you receive to reflect the time between the claim being made and finally agreed. The rate of interest and the period for which it is payable varies according to the type of damages awarded.

Contributory Negligence - the situation may arise where a person wishing to make a claim for compensation is actually partly responsible for the accident. This is called Contributory Negligence but it does not prevent a claim being as long as another party is also partly responsible. However in these circumstances the compensation is likely to be reduced in proportion to the Contributory Negligence which the court feels is applicable, or which is negotiated.
