Ogden 8: an occasion for optimism?

We are delighted to be holding our webinar on Wednesday 16 September where we will be discussing the new Ogden Tables.

The new Ogden Tables were published in August, slightly lowering actuarial multipliers based on worsening trends in mortality data, but also comprehensively overhauling some of the methodology for calculating future losses, especially in relation to contingencies other than mortality.

This webinar will explain the main changes, but also predict the new battlegrounds and examine tactical opportunities for claimants and defendants including:

  • Disability, employment and educational attainment criteria
  • Scope for departing from the tabulated reduction factors
  • Other issues, such as pension claims, fatal accidents, and indexation of periodical payments for loss of earnings
