  • An essential reference on general damages for all those involved in the area of personal injury
  • Guidelines are updated by a working party of the Judicial Studies Board
  • Clearly laid out in tabular format according to injury classifications
  • Every judge who hears civil cases receives a copy

The first edition of this title was regarded as a landmark publication in personal injury practice. Each succeeding edition has built on this reputation and the book has now firmly established itself as essential reading for all those involved in the area of personal injury.

The Guidelines are designed to provide a clear and logical framework for the assessment of general damages while leaving the discretion of the assessor unfettered, since every case must depend to a degree on its own facts. They provide an invaluable guide to all those involved in personal injury litigation: solicitors, barristers, insurance companies, trade unions, and medical defence organizations. As with previous editions, all judges involved in hearing personal injury cases will automatically receive a copy of the book. This ninth edition has been fully updated to take account of inflation and decisions made in the two years since the previous edition.
