Calculations for Epilepsy
In cases where epilepsy is a complication of or a direct result of an injury, the court may assign an additional or stand-alone award for this condition.
- Epilepsy Petit Mal: £36,000 – £86,000
- Epilepsy Grand Mal: £66,000 – £98,500
Factors considered by the court include: the potential for controlling epileptic attacks with medication; negative side effects that medication may exert on the sufferer; negative effects epilepsy causes to the sufferer’s professional and social lives; behavioral problems; and overall medical prognosis.
