"List Of Damages Under Personal Injury Compensation Claims Revised"
by Jems Hug


As plaintiffs, injury survivors were so far authorized to receive compensation for a list of damages specified by the court. As the extensive list has already encouraged loads of innocent sufferers to make their personal injury compensation claims, the UK government has decided to further add to the list. Thus, the list of damages to be paid for, by the offender has been revised and made lengthier.

As damages sustained in an accident include both economic and non-economic factors, the authority has decided to specify the areas claimable for the convenience of the users. As expenses of the doctors can be put under the economic section, the pain and suffering sustained falls under the non-material factors. According to the current revision, a person upon meeting with an accident caused by no fault of his/her own will be entitled to a comprehensive list of compensations. To begin with, accident personal injury claims will cover the current and future medical expenditures. All the present and future earning loss will be calculated within the compensation figure.

Expenses on household services like hiring an attendant or a nurse for managing the domestic stuffs of the victims due to their inability can also be asked to pay through compensation. Mental depression, anguish and trauma are major areas that a plaintiff can demand compensation for. Even loss of consortium or delights of life fall under personal injury compensation claims. This means that if the victim loses a happy relationship that they shared previously with a person concerned, then he/she is entitled to receive monetary compensation for that. Aside, the most obvious damages like pain, suffering, mental disability, physical impairment, disfigurement, etc., the victim party can also demand money for funeral and legal expenses in dire cases.

However, in the new year, informal settlement of compensation claims is highly discouraged, which is why the list of damages covered has been made longer. However, plaintiffs will not receive all the above mentioned compensations, but only a combination of the most applicable ones in case of encountering an accident.
