Hello everyone, just wantedabit of advice in regards to what money will have to be paid into an iva when my personal injury claim is settled.
I didnt claim for loss of earnings all i claimed for was personal injury.
Is personal injury classed as pain and suffering?
I have read online you only have to pay towards the iva if you claimed loss of earnings. Is this correct?
Insurance payments are not defined in IVA terms and conditions, but IP's tend to follow the practice as in bankruptcy. So, how your own IP will treat the compensation is down to them. Those that follow the BR procedures (as most do) will allow you to retain compensation for "Pain and Suffering" and, generally, it has to be described as such by the paying body. "Personal Injury" is open to interpretation and, whereas I might class this as a pain and suffering payment, others might not.
You do need to have a chat with your IP.
My opinions are merely that .. opinions based on experience. Always seek professional advice.
