Low stock.

How much for my leg? This is an apparently simple question which might be asked of a lawyer by a citizen who has sustained a wrongful injury to the said limb. But, in Scotland, no fixed answer can be given. Nor can any official range of possible figures be given.

Only after some serious professional work, perhaps taking many hours, can a range of figures be suggested. It need not be like this.

This study of the assessment of non-pecuniary damages for personal injury reviews the state of current approaches in Scotland, considers the conclusions of the Gill Report and compares differing approaches in jurisdictions worldwide, before presenting possible options for reform.

Personal Injury Law, Scots Law
