Calculating Compensation For Mental Health Effects

* General Psychiatric Damage: £1,000 – £76,000

This bracket is obviously broad in order to account for the wide range of conditions it covers and the varying severity of the damage caused. General psychiatric compensation is typically broken down into four sub-categories: minor, moderate, moderately severe, and severe.

Factors considered by the court in psychiatric cases include:

  • The ability of the sufferer to live and work
  • Negative effects on personal relationships
  • Prospects for future treatment of the injury
  • Increased vulnerability to other injuries in the future
  • The extent of medical treatment and assistance sought
  • The prognosis provided by medical professionals

* Relationship of the injury to sexual or physical abuse, and the extent to which breach of trust played a role in the injury. Courts will consider the victim’s relationship to his or her abuser, where applicable; the nature of the abuse; the duration of the abuse; and the symptoms caused.

Opinions vary widely on what level of compensation is appropriate for psychological injuries. If you need detailed and specific guidance regarding a claim for psychiatric injuries, reach out to our personal injury experts today.

Thank you Megan for all your hard work, your very professional and patient. Very polite i don't think the outcome would have been the same without your help.

Excellent in all areas and i would say that Goldman Knightley are the best solicitors!  I am so grateful.

Involved a slipping incident in a well know superstore.  Liability was disputed however we still managed to achieve to recover £10,000.00 for her injuries which involved soft tissue injuries to her back and shoulder.



Very professional and sympathetic to my case. The case manager got the ball rolling right away and made sure I was cared for in any way they could. I was impressed with the level of communication as well as their commitment to getting me healthy again and fairly compensated

The legal Personal Injury Lawyers handled my situation in a professional and timely manner. They quickly returned phone calls. They responded to texts and emails with a seeming sense of urgency. Communication right? It was peaceful to be kept informed and up to date on the status of my case. I received a fair settlement for my damages. I would recommend them to anyone!

I called numerous times throughout my case to get information and I always felt like I got all the information I asked for. Though these things take a long time to resolve, it felt good to not feel forgotten throughout the process. Great place and grateful for the job they did for me.


I was in a minor collision that caused major lower back injury. Goldman Knightley handled everything very well as far as setting up appointments during the 5 months of physical therapy I went through. It was a long journey, but the few times I called with updates, they were good on returning those calls. I was happy with my choice to use them.


This firm was, without question, the most helpful after having my accident. They remained in contact with me through the entire process and made sure all my questions were answered. I'm sure I was a little annoying with how often I wanted updates but they were patient with me and I would definitely go back to them.

I am so happy I contacted Goldman Knightley, I got rear ended and didn't know what steps to take and as soon as I contacted them it was so easy. They made sure everything was taken care of and I got back everything I deserved and some. Very friendly staff. I would definitely recommend to anyone in need of their service.
