The calculation of past and future losses in personal injury and clinical negligence cases can be a lengthy, technical and complex matter. “Facts & Figures 2018/19” is designed to guide barristers, insurers, solicitors and all levels of the judiciary through the issues that such a calculation can involve. It is compiled with input from many sources, including lawyers, accountants and actuaries, as well as nursing, housing and motoring consultants. Although the most complex cases may still require their own expert evidence, with the aid of Facts & Figures you can calculate:

  • Multipliers for future losses for life, to retirement age, from retirement age, for limited periods, or at
  • specified or unspecified dates in the future.
  • Net incomes from gross
  • Claims for gratuitous care
  • Housing costs
  • Interest rates, and
  • Motoring costs
– in the overwhelming majority of cases.

Facts & Figures 2018/19 also contains helpful guidance on:


  • Splitting multipliers for future losses
  • Periodical payments
  • Roberts v Johnstone calculations
  • Auty calculations
  • How to read a payslip
– and much more.

With the current uncertainty about the direction that the calculation of future losses is likely to take, the Introduction gives pointers to the Government’s latest announcements.

All of the tables and information in Facts & Figures are updated annually so you can be sure your calculations rely on the most up-to-date figures available.

Additionally, the book:

  • Provides access to the latest, up-to-date material and includes the 6th edition of the Ogden tables
