General Principles in the Award of Damages in Cases of Severe Personal Injury                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     

The joint session will examine the quantification of damages in severe personal injury cases according to the laws of different jurisdictions. The analysis will focus on the range of damages in several specific categories of harm, including complete quadriplegia, disabling psychiatric injury or post traumatic stress disorder, loss of use of a dominant hand, and pain and suffering.

We may also examine claims for non-physical injuries such as "cancer phobia" due to exposure to asbestos for example.
