What Is A Compensation Calculator And How Could It Help Me?

A compensation calculator can give you an estimate of how much compensation you could be awarded if your personal injury claim is successful. 

Our accident claims calculator is free to use and will ask a series of questions to understand the type of accident you suffered harm in and the nature of your injury including the severity and type to asses how much you could be awarded in general damages. Additionally, it may ask whether you have needed to take time off work to understand whether you lost out on any income that could be reimbursed via compensation awarded under special damages.

Our advisors are free to talk to and can guide you through the process of using our compensation calculator. Alternatively, they could assess the value of your potential claim themselves. Call on the number above for more information. 

What Can’t A Compensation Calculator Do?

Whether you have suffered due to personal injuries or medical negligence, our compensation calculator could give you an estimate of your claim. However, various factors can impact your personal injury compensation. How much you receive in a successful claim could partly depend on if you are eligible to claim special damages. Unfortunately, our claims calculator can’t consider all types of special damages. It only provides a figure for your pain and suffering and loss of earnings.

Special damages are intended to help you claim for any financial losses you have experienced as a direct result of your injury. To include special damages as part of your claim, you will need to supply evidence. This could include receipts, invoices or payslips.

Examples of special damages:

  • Out-of-pocket medical costs, such as prescriptions.
  • Travel expenses.
  • Carer costs.
  • Vehicle and home adaptions.
  • Repair and replacement costs for any property that might have been damaged in the accident.

Your injuries may have resulted in costs not seen on this list. Call our advisors for free advice about what you could claim under special damages.

How To Use The Compensation Calculator

Our compensation calculator is easy to use. All you need to do is:

  • Choose your place of injury. For example, if you want an accident at work compensation calculator, select the “Work Accident or Illness” option. Another option is selecting “Medical Negligence” for a medical negligence claim calculator.
  • Use the drop-down options to let us know how you were harmed and who was at fault.
  • Let us know if you suffered any financial losses due to your injury.

We’ll also ask you to confirm how old you were when the incident happened and how long ago it was.

Once you’ve finished the form, the instant compensation calculator will get to work and show your potential payout.

Like any compensation calculator in the UK, it is intended as a guide rather than a guarantee of what you will receive. For an even more detailed discussion about your possible compensation, just call the contact number at the top of this page.

How Is Compensation Calculated?

As previously mentioned, general damages could compensate you for the pain and suffering your injuries have caused you. Some factors that could be taken into consideration when this amount is being calculated include:

  • The type of injury you suffered.
  • Whether you suffered more than one injury.
  • The initial severity of your injury.
  • What treatments you have required.
  • What your expected recovery looks like and how long this will take.
  • How your daily activities and working life have been affected.

When your compensation for general damages is being calculated, those responsible may refer to any medical evidence you have provided alongside the guideline compensation brackets listed in the Judicial College Guidelines (JCG). This is a document that lists compensation guidelines for a variety of injuries and illnesses at varying degrees of severity. Our compensation calculator uses the JCG’s figures to help provide you with an estimate of how much you could receive.

Our compensation calculator also takes into account any lost earnings you may have experienced. However, you may be due additional compensation under special damages for any financial losses your injuries have caused you to experience.

In addition to using our compensation calculator, you could contact our advisors for a free valuation of your potential compensation.

Do I Need Evidence To Pursue Compensation Claim Amounts?

It’s crucial that you can provide evidence to support your personal injury claim. Claimants who cannot prove that their injuries were caused by someone else’s negligence are unlikely to be awarded compensation claim amounts.

Therefore, you should consider collecting the following evidence:

  • Medical records – you are within your right to request a copy of your medical records. You can also give your solicitor permission to obtain them on your behalf. Letters from the hospital or surgery that treated you can also be helpful. These will prove any injuries you are being treated for and can also indicate the causation of your injuries.
  • Insight from an independent medical expert – an expert can assess your condition to determine the extent of your injuries and if they were caused by negligence. This evidence will be obtained as part of the personal injury claims process, with your solicitor guiding you through each step.  
  • Contact details of witnesses – if there were witnesses to your accident, it’s worth asking them for their contact details. That way they can be asked to provide a statement confirming what happened and who was at fault.
  • Photographic evidence – you should photograph any injuries you have sustained that are visible. Additionally, take photographs of the accident scene and any hazards that may have contributed to your injuries.

If you would like to know how much compensation you could be awarded, get in touch at any time and our personal injury solicitors may be able to help. Additionally, they’ll be able to answer any questions you have about using a personal injury compensation calculator.

Using Our Medical Negligence Compensation Calculator

Our medical negligence compensation calculator could help you. Simply enter details about the incident and you’ll receive a report on what you could be entitled to in compensation.

You’ll also be asked whether you’ve suffered any financial losses relating to the act of negligence. This is particularly useful if you’ve had to take time off work to recover from your injuries. So when you get your final report after using the medical negligence payout calculator, you’ll have a complete idea of the level of compensation you could receive in a successful case.

It can also help you understand how much compensation could be claimed for medical negligence resulting in death. To learn more about using our medical negligence claim calculator, please contact us for free legal advice using the above details.

Accident At Work Compensation Calculator

A failure on the part of your employer to provide the likes of adequate personal protective equipment (like steel toe cap boots or non-slip shoes) can lead to accidents like slips, trips and falls or chemical burns.

Similarly, a failure to conduct regular risk assessments and maintenance checks could see tools or equipment fall into disrepair, potentially posing a health and safety risk to those who use them. This could lead to cuts and lacerations, broken bones, or in severe cases, amputations or fatal accidents.

If you’ve fallen victim to such an incident, it’s natural to wonder if you’re entitled to compensation and if so, how much you could get. That’s why we’ve created our accident at work claim calculator.

Using this free tool, you can reflect upon who may have been at fault, enter information about the injuries sustained and whether you experienced any loss of earnings. You’ll then be provided with a short report that sets out how much compensation you could receive.

If you have any questions about using our accident at work compensation calculator following your work-related illness or injury, please get in touch.

Car Accident Claim Calculator

There are many injuries that could be sustained in a road traffic accident, such as whiplash injuries, broken bones, dislocations, sprains and strains.

For example, you may have damaged the tendon in your neck after being hit from behind while stopped at a set of traffic lights.

Our whiplash compensation calculator could help you understand what you’re entitled to following a car accident that was caused by someone else’s negligence.

It’s important to note though, that the Whiplash Reform Programme has changed the way claims are made for whiplash injuries. The changes affect passengers and drivers over the age of 18 who sustained injuries in a car accident.

The changes mean that any claims made for injuries valued at £5,000 or below are to be made through the government’s online claim portal. Our calculator could help you better understand the steps you may need to take to seek compensation.

Multiple Injury Compensation Calculator

When accidents happen, it’s possible to suffer more than one injury. For example, if you’re in a road traffic accident in which the other driver smashes into you head-on, you could suffer injuries to your leg and neck, as well as suffering from mental trauma too, like post-traumatic stress disorder.

When you use our tool, you’ll be asked whether you suffered more than one injury. Simply highlight the different parts of your body that you sustained an injury to and our compensation payout calculator will provide advice and guidance on how much compensation you could be awarded in successful multiple injury claims.

If you’d like more information on our compensation claims calculator, get in touch with our team of advisors. They can answer any questions you might have and can offer to evaluate your claim for free. During this consultation, they will take into account the circumstances of your case and can tell you if your claim is valid.

If it is, they may be able to connect you with one of our solicitors. There are many benefits to working with a solicitor on your claim; for example, they can take into account circumstances that may not be covered by our compensation calculator, such as special damages.

Our solicitors also offer their services on a No Win No Fee basis. They do this by offering their clients a Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA), which is a kind of No Win No Fee agreement. Under this type of contract, your solicitor will not ask for a fee to start working on your claim, nor will they ask for ongoing payments to continue their work. Likewise, if your claim doesn’t succeed, then your solicitor won’t take payment for their work.

Your solicitor will be due a success fee in the even of a successful claim. They take this from your compensation as a small percentage, though a legal cap limits this. This helps to ensure that you keep the majority of what you receive.
