In the third episode of our six-part series, David Hossack discusses with experts Nicola Edgar and Derek Couper how to value personal injury and medical negligence claims. This includes discussion on the various heads of claim which should be considered including solatium, loss of earnings, services and future losses including potential pension loss and any ongoing medical treatment which may be required. Nicola and Derek share their experience of how to evidence losses which have been incurred, taking into account who is making the claim. They also discuss recent loss of society awards made by the Courts which often allow us to better predict the value of these types of claims.
