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.
