How We Value Your Compensation

How Does Tinsdills Value Compensation Amounts?

When valuing your compensation, there are three broad categories of compensation;

  • General damages
  • Special damages
  • Future loss

General Damages

General damages are awarded to compensate you for pain suffering and loss of amenity. The award varies according to the nature and extent of the injuries, the age and individual circumstances of the claimant. The opinion of independent medical experts is needed to assess and comment on the injuries sustained to give a forecast for any ongoing symptoms.

Special Damages

Special damages are those financial losses and expenses occurring from the date of the accident to the date of the settlement or trial that can be specifically quantified. Such losses and expenses might include loss of earnings, the cost of care and assistance, the cost of travelling expenses, prescriptions or non-prescription pain killers. Claims for special damages must be evidenced by pay slips, receipts or other documents.

Future Losses

Future losses do not occur in every case and only usually arise in very severe injury cases. Typically claims for future losses arise where injuries are so severe that the claimant’s ability to work or to care for themselves in the future is likely to be affected after the date of the settlement or trial. Such claims might include the cost of adapted accommodation, replacement costs for special equipment or prosthetics in cases involving amputees.
