Malaysia-Finalised Compendium of Personal Injury Awards

Finalised Compendium of Personal Injury Awards






​________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Circular No 210/2014
Dated 17 Sept 2014
To Members of the Malaysian Bar
Finalised Compendium of Personal Injury Awards
We refer to Circular No 098/2013, dated 24 Apr 2013, entitled "Request for Feedback on Compendium for Personal Injury Awards" and Circular No 258/2010 , dated 26 Oct 2010, entitled "Compendium of Personal Injury Awards". 
The Task Force to Review the Compendium of Personal Injury Awards ("Task Force"), headed by R Ravindra Kumar, undertook a review in 2013 to update the Compendium of Personal Injury Awards ("Compendium"). 
After receiving feedback from Members of the Bar, the Task Force finalised the revised Compendium and sent a copy to the Judiciary on 7 Aug 2014.  The Registrar of the High Court of Malaya has informed us, via a letter dated 3 Sept 2014, that the Judiciary is agreeable with the proposed quanta in the Compendium.
We wish to highlight to Members that the Compendium is merely a guideline, intended as a quick reference for judges and lawyers.  The Compendium is not meant to stifle the rights of the parties to submit below or above the stipulated quanta, nor is it meant to fetter the courts' discretion.  Judges and lawyers are at liberty to depart from the Compendium if case law or factual circumstances so dictate.
Attached please find a copy of the Compendium, as revised on 17 Apr 2014, for your reference.

Should you have any enquiries, please contact Germaine Low, Officer, by telephone at 03-2050 2094, or by email at germaine@malaysianbar.org.my.
Thank you.
R Ravindra Kumar
Chairperson
Task Force to Review the Compendium of Personal Injury Awards
