The Judicial Studies Board for Northern Ireland has continued to update the position in relation to assessment of damages in Northern Ireland and this second edition of The Green Book is the result of the work carried out by a committee chaired by Lord Justice McCollum. The guideline figures are based on what are believed to be the rates currently used in negotiation and settlement of claims. The injury classifications are: injuries involving paralysis; orthopaedic injuries; head injuries; facial injuries; psychiatric damage; scarring to other parts of the body; injuries affecting the senses; damages to hair; injuries to internal organs; and dermatitis.

The first edition of this title was regarded as a landmark publication in personal injury practice. Each succeeding edition has built on this reputation and the book has now firmly established itself as essential reading for all those involved in the area of personal injury. The Guidelines are designed to provide a clear and logical framework for the assessment of damages while leaving the discretion of the assessor unfettered, since every case must depend to a degree on its own facts. They provide an invaluable guide to all those involved in personal injury litigation: solicitors, barristers, insurance companies, trade unions, and the medical defence organizations. As with previous editions, all judges involved in hearing personal injury cases will automatically receive a copy of the book. This sixth edition has been fully updated to take account of inflation and decisions made in the two and a half years since the previous edition. The coverage and structure have also been comprehensively reviewed to ensure that they remain as accurate and helpful as possible. Significant enhancements for this edition include: - revision and enlargement of the section on internal organs, particularly in relation to awards for respiratory disability and injury to the digestive system; - a new section on dermatitis; - new comments on sexual abuse and physical abuse in breach of trust, in the section on psychiatric damage; - additional guidance in respect of the lower awards of damages in certain categories of injury.

"The book traces the history of civil liability for mental harm up to the present day. It is argued that the reluctance to provide redress reflects an enduring suspicion of intangible injury and undue fear of proliferating claims." "The book contrasts the limited scope for liability under English law with developments in several other jurisdictions. It is argued that statutory reform is needed to achieve greater legal coherence and to provide a remedy that tracks the impact and severity of harm and is not confined to psychiatric disorders. A new legal framework is offered, rooted in reasonable foreseeability of mental or emotional harm, with a liability threshold of 'moderate severity'. To allay concerns about proliferating claims, modifications to the compensatory regime for personal injury are proposed." --Book Jacket.
