Last Updated 3rd July 2024. Our free compensation calculator tool has been designed by industry professionals to give you the answers you need. We’re specialists in helping you work out how much personal injury compensation you could receive following the likes of:

  • An accident at work
  • A road traffic accident (RTA)
  • Or an accident in a public place, often referred to as a public liability claim

After suffering injuries in an accident, it’s only natural to feel angry, frustrated or annoyed.

The reality is, many accidents that happen could and should be avoided.

Most arise because the responsible body has failed to uphold their duty of care to keep you safe and free from the risk of harm. 

Most slips and trips, for example, happen because of poor housekeeping. You may also be wondering how much compensation you could receive for your injuries.

If you’d like to learn more about the process of making a claim after suffering an injury, you may wish to check out which has a wealth of information and guides. You can find details about how long you have to start a claim, how to find solicitors, what evidence you need, and what compensation could be awarded.

Or perhaps you’re curious as to how the amount is calculated and what factors are taken into account. Maybe you’d like to know more about making a No Win No Fee claim and how to find the best solicitor for you.

Well, you’ve come to the right place. Here, we’ll answer all of these questions and more. Why not watch our quick explainer video for more?

What Is A Compensation Calculator?

A compensation calculator is a free tool that’s designed to help you assess your eligibility to claim and how much compensation you could be awarded. It works by first assessing your injuries.

Simply enter details of which body was injured and to what extent. It also covers psychological injuries too, like stress and post-traumatic stress disorder.

With your injuries logged, the payout calculator then asks about how the injury happened, whose fault you think the accident was, and when it happened.

These last few questions are important. It’s necessary to be within the personal injury claims time limit in order to pursue compensation.

This time limit is 3 years from the date of the accident or the date you gained knowledge that the accident occurred because of the negligence of the defendant.

With the form completed, our compensation calculator will provide you with a report detailing your eligibility to claim and how much compensation you could be entitled to.

If you need any help or support using our personal injury claim calculator, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

How Can A Compensation Calculator Help Me?

Suffering the likes of an accident at work can be stressful and traumatic. The injuries can be severe too. Something as innocuous as tripping over a loose wire can cause a knee or hip injury.

A claim may be something that enters your mind but you dismiss it. There’s no need to do so.

You could be missing out on vital money to help you get back to the position you were in before the accident.

That’s where our compensation calculator can help. By assessing your eligibility to claim, it can give you vital information on your chances of success and how much compensation you could be awarded in a successful claim.

Get Help Using Our Compensation Calculator

Designed by industry professionals, our personal injury claim calculator has been created with the user in mind.

It has a simple interface that takes you through a step-by-step form. And the answers it provides are quick and easily understood.

However, if you’d like some help using our free payout calculator tool, why not get in touch?

We can go through the process with you over the phone, or we can do it on your behalf.

For some people, this approach is more desirable. We can learn more about your case and provide more specific advice.

And if we can see that you have a valid claim, we can connect you with our panel of personal injury solicitors who can get to work on your case right away.

How Does Our Compensation Calculator Work?

We’ve used the latest edition (16th) of the Judicial College guidelines to help create our compensation calculator.

This publication details awards made by the courts for all different kinds of injuries, from burns to a broken wrist.

Without knowing the ins and outs of your case, it’s difficult for us to provide exact advice on what your claim could be worth.

However, we can provide you with an estimate by knowing just a few simple details, such as how the accident happened, when it occurred, who was to blame and what injuries you suffered as a result.

Car Accident Injury Claim Calculator

If you’ve been injured through no fault of your own, it’s possible to use our car accident injury claim calculator to see how much your injuries could be worth.

Our calculator tool can also give you advice on whether or not you’ll be eligible to make a claim.  

It’s important to note that as of 31st May 2021, there have been changes to the way in which compensation is paid out for whiplash in road traffic accident claims. Compensation awards are now fixed in line with The Whiplash Reform Regulations 2021

However, the changes only apply to whiplash injuries, so in using our car accident compensation calculator you’ll still be able to see how much you could be entitled to for a shoulder or leg injury, for example.  

The changes also only apply to drivers or passengers of vehicles, so if you’re injured as a cyclist, pedestrian or motorcyclist, the reforms would not apply.  

If you’d rather not use our personal injury claims calculator and would prefer to chat with us directly about your case, get in touch either via our live chat, bottom right, or call us on the number at the top of this page. 

Injury At Work Claim Calculator

If you’ve suffered an injury at work due to negligence, you may be able to receive compensation by making a personal injury claim.

How much compensation you receive from a successful claim will depend on factors including the extent of your injury.

If you would like to know more about what you could receive, an accident at work claim calculator could help.

They can provide a rough estimate of the value of your claim. However, they don’t always take into consideration every aspect of your case so can only provide a guideline estimate. To succeed in making a claim, you have to prove:

  • That your employer owed you a duty of care – All employers owe their staff a duty of care to take reasonable steps to ensure that the work environment, facilities and equipment are safe and secure enough to be used without causing harm. In Great Britain, this duty of care is outlined in The Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974.
  • That your employer’s actions breached this duty of care. For example, if your employer provides you with faulty work equipment, like a ladder, that they failed to risk assess.
  • Thirdly, that this breach of their duty of care caused you to suffer some form of harm. This could be a physical or psychological injury.

Compensation estimates can vary depending on the nature of the injury and how badly it has affected you.

If you would like to know more about what compensation you could receive, please refer to the personal injury claims calculator below. If you prefer, contact us for free legal advice using the details above.

Data Breach Compensation Calculations

An area of law that’s becoming increasingly more important is data breach. With so much of our personal data stored in both physical and digital locations, the risk exists that it could be accessed or exposed without our consent.

The UK General Data Protection Regulation exists to provide greater protection to our personal and sensitive information. It also gives us rights when it comes to taking action if our data is exposed.

It’s possible to claim compensation for the psychological impact of a data breach.

You can learn more about making a claim on the Data Breach Compensation Expert website. They have many useful guides and resources on the likes of your legal rights, how to report a data protection breach, how long you have to make a claim and what you can include within a compensation payout.

For example, if you’ve separated from an abusive ex-partner and moved to an address they don’t know about, that ex-partner could receive, in error, correspondence meant for you.

This may reveal your new location, leading to you feeling stressed or anxious. You can claim compensation for that distress.

You can also claim data breach compensation for the financial consequences of a breach. So if money has been stolen from your bank account, it’s possible to recoup those losses as part of your case.

What Are The Benefits Of Using A Personal Injury Claim Calculator?

Using a personal injury claim calculator to help work out how much compensation you could be entitled to can prove a useful step.

While these tools may seem a little confusing at first, many of them, just like our own, are simple to use.

They also provide quick results and may save you from having to speak to a solicitor or law firm about your case. Our own compensation calculator allows you to enter a range of details about your case and injuries, such as:

  • When the accident happened – an important fact that helps you understand whether you’re within the claims time limit
  • What injuries you have suffered – sometimes you can suffer multiple injuries. Other damages calculator tools don’t always account for more than one injury. The more injuries suffered, the greater the compensation award
  • Whether you’ve suffered any financial losses – this can include loss of earnings and the costs of travel and medication associated with the injuries suffered. This can add to the compensation you receive

As you can see, using a tool like the one at the top of this page can give you a terrific insight into the financial side of your claim.

If you’re still unsure about using a calculator tool, please get in touch with us. Our advisers can go through it with you and provide more specific advice.

Personal Injury Compensation In The UK

As previously aforementioned, a compensation calculator can help you gain a clearer idea of how much compensation you may be able to receive in general damages. This is the head of loss that is awarded in all personal injury claims and compensates you for your injuries and the pain they have caused you. This includes both physical and psychological injuries.

Some factors which could affect how much compensation you receive in general damages include:

  • The type of injury you suffered.
  • Whether you suffered multiple injuries.
  • The initial severity.
  • What your expected recovery period is.

In addition to using our compensation calculator, you can also refer to the table we have created below. Just like our compensation calculator, this table was created using some of the entries listed within the Judicial College Guidelines (JCG). The reason why we have used the JCG’s figures is that those tasked with valuing general damages for personal injury claims will often refer to this document alongside any medical evidence, as it lists compensation guidelines for a variety of injuries at differing severities.

Please only use this table as a guide. Also, note that the top entry has not been taken from the JCG.

Body PartSeverityCompensation BracketDetails
Multiple Serious Injuries With Special DamagesSeriousUp to £1,000,000+A compensation award for suffering multiple serious injuries and special damages for lost earnings and medical expenses.

NeckSevere (ii)£80,240 to £159,770These injuries include damage to the discs of the cervical spine or serious fractures that are of considerable severity.
HandTotal Effective Loss of One Hand£117,360 to £133,810This covers injuries which result in the total or effective loss of a single hand.

BackModerate (i)£33,880 to £47,320Examples in this compensation bracket include crush fractures of the lumbar vertebrae causing a large risk of osteoarthritis with constant discomfort and pain.
AnklesModerate£16,770 to £32,450These injuries, such as fractures or torn ligaments, will result in less serious disabilities. They include difficulty with walking for long periods, problems ascending stairs, irritation from metal plates and struggling to walk on uneven ground.

In addition to receiving general damages, you may also be able to receive special damages. This secondary head of loss compensates you for the financial losses your injuries have caused you to experience. For example, our compensation calculator takes into account any loss of earnings you may have experienced due to your injuries.

Other financial losses you may be able to claim for that our calculator does not take into account include:

  • Medical expenses.
  • Travel costs.
  • Care expenses.

Start Your No Win No Fee Personal Injury Claim

We believe that nobody should be prevented from making a personal injury claim if they’ve sustained an injury through no fault of their own.

Financial barriers and mental pressures may dissuade people from claiming. Your employer, for example, may pressure you into not making a claim against them following an accident. Such behaviour is inexcusable and unjust.

You’ve suffered harm through no fault of your own and have the right to seek recourse.

The cost of making a claim is a concern for many people too, and there are many cases when people avoid taking legal action for fear of the associated costs. However, we can remove that stress with our No Win No Fee service.

You may have heard this phrase before. It essentially means that:

  • If your claim does not succeed, you will not have to pay the fees your solicitor has built up in pursuing your case.
  • You won’t need to pay any fees upfront or during the case.
  • If the claim is a success, your solicitor will deduct what’s called a success fee to cover their costs and expenses. This is a small percentage of your compensation award. However, the percentage is capped at a low level, meaning you take away the vast majority of the compensation.

If you’d like to begin a claim today, all you have to do is get in touch with our team.

The claims that we can help with…

  • Accidents at work
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Accidents involving vehicles
  • Cycling and motorcycling accidents
  • Accidents in public places
  • Criminal injury claims
  • Data breach claims

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) On The Compensation Calculator

What are typical payouts for personal injury in the UK?

When making a personal injury compensation claim, you may be wondering ‘what are the typical payouts for a personal injury in the UK?’

Your personal injury claim payout may include general and special damages. General damages compensate you for the pain and suffering your injury has caused you.

Whereas special damages compensate you for any of the financial losses you have suffered due to your injury. This could include medical costs, travel expenses and loss of past and future earnings.

There is no typical or average payout for a personal injury claim that we can provide. This is because compensation awards are assessed on a case-by-case basis, meaning the specific factors of your claim could affect how much you receive.

You can also use our compensation calculator at the top of this page to help give you a clearer idea of how much compensation you could receive for your injury.

Or, if you have any questions about your claim, you can contact our advisors today via the contact information provided on this page.

Can a compensation calculator help me with loss of earnings? <p

>One of the benefits of using a compensation calculator is that it can help you work out how much you could be owed for other types of losses.

When an accident happens and you suffer an injury, you may be unable to work for some time while you recover. This could especially be the case if you’ve suffered an injury like a broken leg or ankle.

If your employer doesn’t pay you during this recovery time, you could fall into financial hardship.

Well, you’ll be glad to learn that it’s possible to recover that lost money in the form of a loss of earnings claim, which forms part of your overall compensation package.

You simply need to provide your solicitor with bank statements and payslips so that they can see how much you usually earned. They can then work out the difference for the unpaid period of recovery.

Our compensation calculator tool can also help with this. Simply work out how much you’ve lost per week and calculate the number of days or weeks you’ve not been paid.

You’ll then be given an answer. In addition to bank statements, you can also claim back any money you had to spend on at-home help, such as cleaning services.

If a family member or friend helped you a few hours each day or week, you can claim back money for their time investment too. If you need any more information on what you can include as part of a compensation claim, please get in touch.


Can a claim calculator tell me if I’m eligible for compensation?

Some types of compensation calculator, such as our own, can inform you as to whether or not you can make a claim. However, it’s always best to get proper legal advice from a solicitor or law firm. You can access this advice today for free by calling our helpline.


Can a compensation calculator tell me my loss of earnings?

Yes, it’s possible for a compensation calculator to help you calculate how much money you’ve lost due to the accident. You can also calculate this yourself. All you need are 3 payslips from before the accident and then payslips that relate to the time you were absent from work. You can simply work out the difference each month, and that will give you your loss of earnings calculation.
