Personal Injury Solicitors Compensation Calculator

Our expert no win no fee solicitors made this free compensation calculator to help you decide whether to make a claim.

Please note that the figures quoted below relate only to personal injury claims.

The compensation calculator has been prepared using the latest guidelines in light of the Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Act (2012).

These apply a 10% uplift to personal injury compensation awards in cases where a no win no fee agreement was entered into after 1 April 2013 and no success fee is paid by the Defendant. The uplift may not apply in your case.

You may be entitled to claim for additional losses as well. Often these can be worth more than the claim for personal injuries, so will be looked at closely by your solicitor. See our things to claim section for more details.

How to Use the Accident Claims Compensation Calculator

Simply read the headings and descriptions below to identify the parts of the body where you have suffered an injury to see what your claim might be worth.

Remember that the extent and nature of your personal injury claim is unique to you, so the figures shown in our free compensation calculator are guidelines only and should not be relied upon to value your claim. Only your personal injury solicitor at Donoghue Solicitors can properly advise you what your claim is worth.

You should also note that your accident compensation award may be substantially increased by things such as lost earnings, vehicle repairs and hire cars (if appropriate), private medical treatment, out-of-pocket expenses etc.

We have not included details of these in the figures quoted below because they are unique to each individual claim.

Read some accident claim case reports to find out how we help clients get the maximum compensation for their personal injuries and other things.

How Will My No Win No Fee Personal Injury Solicitors Calculate How Much My Accident Claim Is Worth?

Our no win no fee solicitors are renowned experts, with many years experience in dealing with personal injury claims.

They use their experience, court guidelines, previous cases and other information to assess your claim. It is not an exact science because there are no fixed compensation amounts in most personal injury claims. But with medical and other evidence your lawyer will make sure that you recover the maximum compensation for your accident claims.
