Check your coverage inline with the new Ogden Discount Rate
The calculation which determines personal injury compensation was altered last year; subsequently, your insurance coverage may need to change with it.
The Ogden Discount Rate, otherwise known as the personal injury rate, is used to determine how much someone who has suffered a life-changing injury should receive in compensation. The lower the rate, the greater amount someone will receive, as it relates to the amount deducted from a payout having taken into account how much a lump sum will make on interest while sitting in a bank account.
When the rate was changed from 2.5% to 0.75% in March 2017, it meant someone who would have been awarded £9 million at 2.5% for a life-changing injury would instead receive over £20 million.
