Heads of Claim

General Damages.

General Damages is the term generally used to refer to compensation for your injuries both physical and mental as well as any scaring that has resulted due to the incident. A more accurate term is pain and suffering and loss of amenity (PSLA).

The value of your injuries is based upon a review of the medical report that your solicitor will obtain in relation to your injuries. This will then be cross-referenced with decided matters and valuation of similar injuries as set out in the judicial college guidelines.
