The 15th edition of the Judicial College Guideline was published at the end of November updating the Guidelines for awards of General Damages in personal injury claims. The guideline was first published way back in 1992 and has been regularly updated since then providing the judiciary, lawyers and litigants in person with a first point of reference in establishing a likely award for a claim for pain suffering and loss of amenity.
The Foreward to the 15th Edition notes that despite improvements in road safety, the design of vehicles, safety in the workplace, and a more risk averse society, accidents will continue to happen.
