What is "full compensation"? Does a cheque with infinite zeroes replace the loss of a limb? Or a child? It is only right and proper that the compensation paid to Claimants in such cases is managed and if need be, capped. And surely this is in line with constant bleating of Claimant's solicitors that "it's not about the money, it's about the principle!"
A general review of the upward trend in damages awards makes quite clear that the clinical negligence industry, and even personal injury as a whole, is driven by the greed of Claimants and their solicitors whose definition of "full compensation" will never be satisfied.
