Description: Continually cited in Hong Kong Courts as the “Chan Tables”, Personal Injury Tables Hong Kong 2016 updates and revises the essential reference information for calculating damages in personal injury and fatal accident cases. The 2016 edition has been fully updated to take into account revised Hong Kong mortality projections by the Census and Statistics Department (Hong Kong Population Projections 2015–2064), under which there is an increase in life expectancy. Evaluating damages is no longer a time-consuming and challenging task. Its comprehensive contents include Hong Kong actuarial tables for the calculation of:
- Inflationary rates for adjusting PSLA
- Wage statistics
- Retail price indices
“The law, like life, moves on. Fresh developments occur. With them, there arise new needs to be met. So the tools by which justice according to law is delivered effectively must be kept in good repair, and upgraded from time to time. That is why the latest edition of this publication has been brought out. This edition will, I am fully confident, continue to provide the valuable service rendered by the previous one. It is the product of a lot of hard work on the part of many persons. Readers will doubtless wish to join me in thanking them one and all.”
Kemal Bokhary, Non-Permanent Judge of the Court of Final Appeal, March 2016
