It was unnecessary and in any event impossible for the court to undertake the exercise of estimating what a claimant in a personal injury action might receive from a local authority by way of financial assistance towards her future care provision. Accordingly no deduction should be made from the award of damages to the claimant to reflect the possible continued availability to her of direct payments from the local authority.
