Compensation Bracket: 0.00

Disclaimer:

The calculator above is based on guidance from the Judicial College Guidelines (17th Edition) – a document used by solicitors and judges hearing personal injury claims to help determine fair compensation amounts based on injury type and severity. More severe injuries that take longer to recover from (if at all possible) will receive higher compensation amounts than minor injuries that heal quickly.

The calculator is based on guidance only, however, and should be used as such. There’s no guarantee that the compensation you receive will fall in the compensation bracket provided by the calculator. The exact figure will vary based on the circumstances of your claim.

How Does Your Personal Injury Claim Calculator Work?

Making a personal injury compensation claim is a wise idea if you’ve had an accident that was caused by somebody else’s negligence. However, you might only be willing to claim compensation if you can be confident the amount you’ll receive is worthwhile. So, how exactly does our compensation calculator work?

Calculating personal injury compensation is a complicated matter, which is why all personal injury solicitors rely on the Judicial College Guidelines to help bring fairness to the field of personal injury law. Our compensation calculator relies on these same guidelines, just as a personal injury solicitor assessing your claim might.

Our personal injury claim calculator can only provide you with a compensation estimate for your actual injuries sustained. Any additional costs, damages, or medical expenses incurred will need to be considered separately from the calculator’s estimate.

What Injuries Can I Claim For?

If you’ve been injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault, then you can usually make a claim regardless of the nature of your injury. With that said, we see claims for the following injury types frequently, so it gives you an idea of what other claimants like you have made a claim for:

  • brain and head injury
  • soft tissue injury
  • injuries to the neck and shoulders
  • injuries to the arms, wrists, and hands
  • legs, knees, and feet injuries

 

Personal injury cases can focus on injuries such as broken bones, dislocations, lacerations, and sprains, amongst others. Depending on the pain and suffering involved, the medical treatment necessary, and the length of recovery expected, you’ll receive different compensation amounts.

How Is Compensation Calculated?

Compensation for a personal injury claim is made up of two key parts:

  • general damages: covered by our calculator above
  • special damages: not included in our calculator

 

We’ll explore both types of damages in greater depth below to give you a better idea of the total compensation you could be entitled to when you make a claim.

General Damages

General damages relate to your injury specifically. It focuses on the type of injury you’ve suffered from and also takes into account the severity of that injury.

For example, brain injuries sustained during an accident are some of the most serious injuries you can suffer, yet the severity of those injuries will lead to various compensation recommendations – based on the Judicial College Guidelines. A brain injury, according to these guidelines, could receive the following compensation amounts:

  • Minor injury – £2,690 to £15,580
  • Less severe injuries – £18,700 to £52,550
  • Moderate – £52,550 to £267,340
  • Moderately severe – £267,340 to £344,150
  • Very severe – £344,150 to £493,000

 

Similar scales exist within the guidelines for all injuries, and part of your compensation will be decided upon based on these scales to ensure fairness across cases.

Special Damages

Special damages don’t tend to have guidelines attached to them, as they relate specifically to the final losses or damages you personally faced as a result of the accident that caused your injuries. In other words, it’s case-specific.

For example, if person A and person B suffered the exact same injuries in the exact same way, person A may have been able to return to their office job after a week, but person B may only have been able to return to their manual job after 6 weeks. Since both have had different financial losses here, the personal injury claims calculator on our page couldn’t estimate what your special damages compensation may be.

Instead, it’s best to speak directly with one of our personal injury solicitors to discuss what additional compensation you could be entitled to.

How Much Compensation Am I Entitled To?

Use our personal injury calculator to give you an accurate estimate – but remember it is exactly that: an estimate only.

Our calculator will give you information about the general damages compensation you could receive, but as this doesn’t take into account any special damages you’re entitled to, it can never be 100% accurate – not least because even when compensating your injury, the guidance only suggests compensation brackets, where exactly your compensation falls within this will vary from case to case.

But know this – if you’re eligible for a personal injury claim, our personal injury specialists will be happy to take on your case and get you the compensation amount you deserve.

What Is The Average Payout For Personal Injury Claims?

Specialist personal injury solicitors are asked these sorts of questions all the time, but the truth is, there is no average amount.

Two individuals can be injured in similar road traffic accidents in the exact same places, but still find that their injuries affect their lives in different ways. Some people will heal much quicker than others, meaning the injury has less of an impact on their lives and so is therefore seen as less severe in personal injury law.

The point is, injuries affect people in different ways and so different compensation amounts are often seen even in similar cases.

Contact our team today and we’ll see if you have a claim. If you do, we’ll be happy to take it on under a no win no fee agreement, so there is no financial risk involved for you.

Frequently Asked Questions

Below we’ll answer common questions regarding personal injury claims.

Whilst every claim is unique, we always try to keep our claims process largely the same so you know exactly what to expect if you start a claim with us. Generally, you can expect the following to happen:

  1. Get in touch with us and we’ll check if you have a claim for free.
  2. If you have a case, we’ll discuss our percentage fee in the event that your claim is successful.
  3. If you agree with the terms of our no win no fee agreement, we’ll contact the defendant and let them know the nature of the claim against them.
  4. The defendant will then either accept liability or dispute the case.
  5. We’ll gather medical evidence from your medical records to prove your injuries were caused or made worse by the accident. This information will be used to assess your general damages compensation.
  6. An offer of settlement may then follow and negotiations can begin.
  7. The claim may take a while to conclude if the case is disputed, because it will have to go to court. If the case isn’t disputed, then you may have a result in as little as a couple of months.

Most people will be eligible for a personal injury claim if they can satisfy the following three conditions:

  • The responsible party had a duty of care towards you: This can often be the easiest to prove. If you have been injured at work due to your employer’s negligence, then they owe you a duty of care under the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974. Similarly, every road user owes each other a duty of care under the Road Traffic Act 1988 and The Highway Code. Owners of public spaces owe site users a duty of care under the Occupiers’ Liability Act 1957.
  • The responsible party breached that duty of care: You’ll need to prove that the responsible party breached that duty of care through negligence on their part. This could be anything from driving recklessly on the road and not in accordance with the Road Traffic Act causing a road traffic accident, or an employer failing to tidy away wires in an office causing you to trip and fall. Proving a breach is usually possible through evidence gathered using one of the following:
    • Video footage
    • Photographs
    • Witness reports
    • Accident record books
    • Medical records
  • You were injured as a result of that breach: As part of the claim process we will work with your medical team to determine exactly what medical treatment was necessary as a result of the accident and to determine the severity and type of injuries you sustained to help inform compensation amounts.

If you’ve had an accident that wasn’t your fault and you’ve actually been injured in multiple ways, then you might be wondering how these multiple injuries will be assessed.

First, each individual injury will be assessed for the impact it has had and the severity of that injury. The Judicial College Guidelines will be consulted to work out the compensation amount you could receive for each injury. These individual injury compensation amounts will then be totalled to ensure the overall award reflects each of your injuries.

This, of course, can become complicated as it’s difficult to look at each injury in isolation. In all likelihood, your multiple injuries likely combined to worsen your quality of life and reduced your ability to work for even longer. Whilst difficult, your personal injury solicitor will need to work with you and your medical team to understand the effect the injuries have had on your life whilst trying to come up with special damages compensation that’s suitable.

Generally, the upper limit of the guidance in the Judicial College guidelines will be the starting point, but additional compensation will then be considered for each subsequent injury and any special damages awarded.

Compensation Additions

Whilst the Judicial College guidelines are an excellent starting point (and our personal injury claim calculator will help you there), you can get additional compensation in certain circumstances.

For Multiple Injuries

We’ve already talked a little about multiple injuries being sustained in the same accident and how compensation would be calculated here, but you could notice increased compensation above what you expected due to the severity of the accident and the larger effect it has had on your life.

Compensation Reductions

In the interest of transparency, these are some of the reductions you might see.

No Win No Fee Percentage

If you choose to work with No Win No Fee Solicitors Co, then we will tell you the % fee we will take in the event that your claim is successful. By law, this has to be less than 25% of your total compensation, but we will discuss our exact competitive fees when you start your claim with us.

Split Liability

In the event that the accident that caused your injuries was partly your responsibility, we’ll work with the defendant’s solicitor to agree to a reduced compensation amount. For example, if both parties agree you were 50% responsible for the accident, then you will receive 50% of the compensation you could have received.

After The Event (ATE Insurance)

Whilst After The Event insurance is a vital part of any no win no fee claim, you’ll only pay for it in the event that your claim is successful and you receive compensation. ATE insurance essentially covers the defendant’s legal costs if your claim is not successful. It is usually optional. 

Our personal injury compensation calculator is accurate when assessing the general damages compensation you could receive for your injuries after an accident caused by somebody else’s negligence.

It’s based entirely on the Judicial College guidelines, a document all personal injury solicitors use to assess the value of personal injury compensation based on injury type and severity, so it couldn’t be more accurate.

Where EVERY online personal injury compensation calculator falls down is that they cannot take into account the impact your injuries have had on your life, and therefore they can’t provide you with an estimate of the special damages compensation you could receive.

With that said, personal injury compensation calculators should be looked at as guidance only – for an accurate estimate speak to a member of our team.
