Personal Injury Discount Rate Research

This research explored a range of issues relating to the discount rate, used to calculate lump sum payments paid in personal injury compensation settlements.



Analysis of stakeholder data explored the current use and profile of the discount rate, and qualitative interviews with stakeholders and personal injury claimants explored the role of the discount rate in negotiating a settlement, and its’ impact on claimant investment and consumption behaviour.
