How is my personal injury compensation worked out? 

As part of the evidencing process you will be sent to see a Medical Expert and depending on the severity and type of your injuries potentially two or three experts. The Medical Expert will produce a report which summarises your injuries and gives the most likely prognosis for your injuries. 
We then take those reports and your likely recovery period and compare these with the Judicial Studies Board Guidelines (JSB) which is a reference book used by Solicitors, Barristers and Judges alike. The JSB, as it is known, provides various brackets for valuation of injuries of every type based on the severity of the injury, any lasting problems and the length of time it takes to recover. One criticism of the JSB is that it gives, at times, a somewhat broad-brush approach to injury valuations; for example Minor Back Injuries are valued between £1,950.00 and £6,290.00. 
Upon receipt of a medical report, detailing your injuries, we will then advise you on our recommendations for negotiations with the fault party and with your agreement, proceed to negotiate the best possible settlement for your claim.
