Want to learn more about the injury compensation scale?
If you have been injured due to the fault of somebody else then you may wish to find out about the injury compensation scale. You may be interested to discover how much compensation you might receive, should you decide to proceed with a personal injury claim.
How does the injury compensation scale work?
When an injury claim is made, the law will determine how much compensation is due to the injured party. A range of factors will be considered when deciding the level of payout-out, for example injury type and severity, and loss of future earnings. An injury compensation scale, or Ogden table as they are sometimes known, will be used to establish how much compensation will be awarded.
Ogden tables are sets of statistical data relating to UK personal injury claims. An injury compensation scale will take into account influences such as life expectancy, retirement ages and inflation. There are many different Ogden tables that can be used by the law depending on the particular circumstances of the accident, injuries and the claimant. An injury compensation scale can also take into account the seriousness of the injuries inflicted, and use this to determine the amount of money due. The largest pay-outs will be awarded to compensate for fatal and severe life-changing accidents.
