Compensation Calculator

Compensation Calculator

Our compensation calculator will give you a rough idea of how much you might be able to claim. Having said that, do bear in mind that each case is unique, so compensation can vary enormously. We would always advise that you take specialist advice from a personal injury solicitor.

To use the calculator simply select the part of the body that you have injured and you will receive a compensation estimate in less than a second. If you have injured more than one part of the body then feel free to have another go.

You may also find our Average Claim Amounts page useful to find out the average payout amounts for a wide range of personal injuries. This calculator only considers the injury in the compensation estimate but in reality, you can claim for any way that you life has changed for the worse. Our claiming for future losses page explains this in greater detail.

If you do decide to make a claim, our step by step guide to the claim process may help you. Click here to download it.
