Personal injury: Quantum Case: Psychiatric and psychological damage; PSLA of £48,000. The claimant suffered from psychiatric and psychological damage as a consequence of continuous sexual abuse from a young age. No award was given for past or future loss of earnings as the court found claimant had obtained compensation through asking for gifts and money from the defendant over the course of the years as an adult after his abuse. If an award was to be given, it would fall under 'double recovery'.
