Injury Scale Values

The case involved the proper interpretation to be given to the Civil Liability Regulation and in particular the Injury Scale Values (ISV scale) applying to pain only cases. Judgment on that point was decided in favour of the insurer and damages held below the mandatory final offer level. (Tinoco v van Doren & Anor (BD275/09) )
