How is Injury Compensation Calculated in Scotland?

When you contact the specialist personal injury solicitors at Jones Whyte, one of the first things we will do is work out exactly how much we will be claiming in compensation on your behalf.

The first thing to take into account in calculating your injury compensation, is exactly what the injury is. Depending on where the injury is on your body, and how it occurred, the amount of compensation you can claim will change. A serious head injury, for instance, will mean more potential compensation that a broken foot.

We then have to examine exactly what we will be claiming for. First, we will aim to value you claim based on your pain and suffering, known as “solatium” in Scots law. This is calculated by assessing the severity and location of your injury. It is important to seek the assistance of an expert legal practitioner so that the full extent of your pain and suffering.

Afterwards, we will look at all the other elements we can claim for. This may include your loss of earnings as a result of having to miss work because of your injuries, at home care services, which is compensation we can claim where family members or close friends have provided care during your recovery, child care costs and various other costs which you have incurred as a result of your injury.
