What to Know about our Personal Injury Compensation Calculator

Our expert no win no fee solicitors made this free compensation calculator to help you decide whether to make a claim. There are three important things you should know about it:

  1. the figures quoted below relate only to the personal injury part of any compensation award. Your accident or personal injury 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. Often these can be worth more than the claim for personal injuries itself, so will be looked at closely by your lawyer. We have not included details of these in the figures quoted below because they are unique to each individual claim.
  2. the compensation calculator has been prepared applying the appropriate uplifts which came into effect in 2013 with the introduction of the Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Act (2012).
  3. the amounts shown are based on the most recent data, from August 2023. Awards should be updated for inflation using the Retail Prices Index. You should keep in mind that the nature and extent of your personal injury claim is unique to you, so the figures shown in our free compensation calculator are general guidelines only. They should not be relied upon to value your claim. Importantly, courts do not simply add up different injuries to arrive at an appropriate award. Instead, judges and lawyers use their experience and knowledge of previous similar awards to determine compensation designed to put the claimant in the pre-accident or injury position, as far as possible. This is a difficult exercise, so you might want to speak to a personal injury lawyer at Donoghue Solicitors to find out what your claim is worth.

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 learn more about current awards. The calculator includes physical and psychological injuries because claimants suffer either or both, especially in high-value or complex cases. Contact us for more information if your particular injury is not listed.

How Compensation is Calculated in Practice

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

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

Our no win no fee lawyers are experts with decades of experience in dealing with personal injury claims between them.

They use their specialist knowledge, court guidelines, previous cases and other information to value your accident compensation amounts. It is not an exact science because there are no fixed compensation amounts in most personal injury claims. Claims involving multiple injuries can be especially difficult to calculate. But with medical and other evidence your lawyer will make sure that you recover the maximum compensation for your accident claims.
