Press release

LV= GI response to the Ogden discount rate review

LV= has always been committed to providing the fairest possible settlements to our most seriously injured road users. Today’s announcement whist replacing the absurd and fiscally irresponsible decision to cut the Ogden Discount Rate to -0.75%, doesn’t in our view go far enough. At this level we believe that claimants will remain over-compensated, thus undermining the common law principle of 100% compensation. This means that uncertainty will remain for claimants, lawyers and compensators alike as this rate will be surely challenged once again at the next review in five years’ time.
