Guidance updating the Vento bands for damages for injury to feelings has been issued. The new bands, for claims issued on or after 6 April 2020, are:-

  • lower band: £900 to £9k
  • middle band: £9k to £27k
  • upper band: £27k to £45k (with the possibility of the most serious cases exceeding £45k)

These figures take account of the 10% uplift from Simmons v Castle.
