Thousands of people have suffered a personal injury as a direct result of an accident due to no fault of their own. A claim can be made against the negligent party for monetary compensation; this compensation exists to put claimants back in the position they would have been, had their accident not taken place.Claimants are entitled to be compensated for Pain and Suffering and ‘Loss of Amenity’ (‘PSLA’), commonly known as General Damages. The pain and suffering element of the award aims to compensate claimants for physical and psychological symptoms. The loss of amenity compensates claimants for loss of enjoyment of life or a reduction in ability to perform everyday tasks.
