The 9th Edition of the JSB Guidelines was published on 4th September 2008. The new Guidelines have simply been updated to reflect the impact of inflation over the 2-year period since the 8th edition. The figures given have generally been increased by approximately 10%. In cases involving more serious injuries this may have a significant impact upon the valuation of damages for PSLA and reserves should, where appropriate be reviewed. It should of course be noted that the figures given are guidelines only and a more accurate valuation can always be gleaned from consideration of previously decided cases.
