How much is your personal injury costing you?

How Much Personal Injury Compensation? - Guidelines


Below you will find some basic information about the levels of compensation that may be awarded for various types of personal injury or illness, based on guidelines issued by the Judicial Studies Board (JSB). This list is not exhaustive and we will be happy to provide advice on other injury types.


Please note that these figures are for guidance only and do not include special damages such as loss of earnings.  An assessment of which bracket your injury may fall into is best carried out by an experienced personal injury lawyer.

It is important to remember that the value of any personal injury claim will be dependent on the nature and extent of the injuries to the individual, their circumstances at the time and any financial losses they incur, so the total compensation awarded in a case may be significantly more than detailed below.


If you would like to make a claim, you can either complete a compensation claim enquiry form on line or contact us at any time on our help line number, 0800 0328511.
