New Rulings to Increase Value of Future Personal Injury Claims

Posted Monday 27th February 2017 14:09

The Lord Chancellor Elizabeth Truss has announced new rulings to be employed in the calculation of settlement values for personal injury claims. The new calculations will have significant impact on Clinical Negligence and other claims particularly involving catastrophic injuries to younger people. In the light of the new rulings clients are advised to re-assess their current level of protection to ensure indemnity limits remain sufficiently adequate to deal with future claims.

Details of the Lord Chancellors rulings are available in an article published by Kennedys Law, which can be accessed here http://www.kennedyslaw.com/article/discount-rate-reduction-after-16-years/
