My name is ***** ***** I am happy to help you today. Presumably you are not submitting the claim online?
Do you have a medical report and have you sever it with your letter of claim?
You will need to serve a medical report with your particulars of claim so the court can assess the amount of damages your should be awarded; it's not for you to calculate a figure - the Judge will make the assessment. I suggest you set in your POC the nature of the injury you suffered and you should put in the band that the injury falls into. So you might say, for example, that a minor injury should be at no more than £3,000 or no more than £10,000. The effect of this is that the court can then decide which 'track' the case should be allocated. I have access to the Judicial Studies Board guide for assessment of damage for personal injury cases. If you give me a detailed description of the assault / injury I can give you an idea of which band the claim might fall into.
