In 2007 the government identified a need for a three yearly increase in these damages in line with the retail price index.

However,  apart from the expected 10% increase due this April which will take them from £11800.00 to £12980.00,  there has been resistance to any further increase in the award citing the current financial climate as the reason.

I will keep you updated on APIL's campaign.
