Guidelines for the Assessment of General Damages in Personal Injury Cases by Judicial Studies Board Staff
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 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 the medical defence organizations.
The book is edited by a working party of the Judicial Studies Board, under the chairmanship of Mr Justice Bell. The members of the working party are all lawyers and personal injury specialists - John Cherry QC, Edwin Glasgow CBE, QC, D.A.K. Hughes, solicitor, and R.J. Sutcliffe, solicitor.
