    1. The Chan Tables are the authoritative and court-approved tables and provide the definitive starting point for all calculations for Personal Injury compensation claims in Hong Kong.

    “I agree that the Chan Tables should be accepted as the starting point in Hong Kong…”

    Justice Bharwaney, Yuen Hiu Tung (No.1) [2013] 1 HKLRD 643; [2013] 2 HKC 182

    2. Developments since the prior edition include the incorporation of Table E483: Projected Hong Kong Life Tables 2018-2066 to reflect the Hong Kong government’s release of updated statistical data in Hong Kong Life Tables 2011-2066, The Hong Kong Population Projections 2017-2066.

    3. Personal Injury Tables Hong Kong 2019 has an interdisciplinary research team of the highest order.

Johnny Li is a Professor of Actuarial Studies at the University of Melbourne, Australia, and a Professor of Actuarial Science at the University of Waterloo, Canada.

    4. “These days of judicial skepticism against mathematics and actuarial science are bygone. It is now clear that our very own Chan Tables, much like the Ogden Tables in England, have become an indispensable part and the starting point of our law in this area.”

    Foreword, Andrew Cheung, Permanent Judge of the Court of Final Appeal

     

    The 2019 Personal Injury Tables contain essential reference information to facilitate lawyers researching appropriate compensation levels for losses or expenses incurred through personal injury and fatal accident cases.

    The Chan Tables are the authoritative court-approved actuarial tables equivalent to the UK Ogden Tables. They provide the starting point for calculations on all Personal Injury compensation claims and are a staple in every court. They have been cited in Hong Kong Courts on numerous occasions including the Court of Appeal.
