Negligence is careless behaviour causing loss or injury to an other person.
In order to succeed in a claim for compensation it must be proved that someone else was negligent and that the negligence caused injuries and other losses.
Is the amount a case is worth and is usually classified into general damages, special damages and future loss. Interest may also be added to any damages awarded.
Covers items which cannot be quantified precisely the main item of which is usually compensation for pain and suffering.
Covers items of loss which can be calculated reasonably accurately including loss of earnings, travelling expenses, cost of medical treatment and medicines, damaged personal property, and the excess on an insurance policy.
The calculation of these is complex and the court will apply a discount to allow for the fact that the money will be received all at once rather than over a period of years and can therefore be invested and earn interest.
Interest may be payable on some items of damages.
If state benefits are received these may be repayable from any damages awarded at the end of the case.
