How much compensation can I claim for my injury?

To calculate your injury compensation before your claim is underway, several factors must be taken into account.

In the following article, we explain how personal injury compensation is calculated, how your solicitor will add up the different parts of your compensation award, and how much (money) might be deducted from compensation.

How will my injury compensation be calculated?

Your compensation will be calculated by adding together:

  • General damages - awarded for pain, suffering and loss of amenity (PSLA), and;
  • Special damages - awarded for any financial losses or costs you have incurred.

General damages

‘General damages’ is the term used for compensation awarded for pain, suffering and loss of amenity (PSLA). General damages are calculated based on the type of injury or illness, and the severity. 

How is it possible to calculate 'pain and suffering'?

'Pain, suffering and loss of amenity (PSLA)' is the term for the impact an injury or illness has had on your life. Your solicitor will start the calculation by referring to guideline tables published by the Judicial College.

Judicial College Guidelines - 2019 Compensation Tables

The following tables refer to the Guidelines for the Assessment of General Damages in Personal Injury.

As part of the injury claims process, these tables would be used by solicitors, or the courts, as a starting point when calculating your compensation:

Calculating compensation for multiple injuries

Calculating an accurate compensation estimate when you have multiple injuries is more complicated. The individual compensation amounts cannot be simply added together.

See an example of multiple injuries calculation:

General damages for a serious arm injury might be £45,000

For a minor hand injury, in isolation, you would typically receive £3,000.

However, if you have a serious arm injury and a minor hand injury, you would typically receive £45,000 + a reduced percentage of £3,000.

Special damages, such as loss of earnings, would not be counted twice

Our online multiple injury compensation calculator will factor in multiple injury adjustments.

Calculate compensation

Special damages

Special damages are awarded for any financial losses and expenses you have incurred as a result of your injury.

The injury compensation claim calculation will include loss of earnings, the cost of medical treatments and any other expenses incurred as a result of the accident.

What can I claim for after an injury? (see list)

Examples of special damages (losses you can claim for) include:

  • Lost earnings (including future earnings)
  • Medical treatment costs
  • Physiotherapy
  • Travel costs
  • Costs of care
  • Costs of adapting your home or car

Does the cause of the injury affect the compensation calculation?

Yes. The Judicial College general damages tables do not consider different causes. In practice, however, the circumstances of an injury or illness can affect the final injury compensation amount.

Our injury compensation calculator takes the accident or illness circumstances into account when calculating compensation and assessing whether you have a claim.

Specific circumstances:

Calculating compensation for a car accident

Our road accident (RTA) compensation calculator will calculate compensation for all typical injuries sustained in a car, bike, motorcycle or pedestrian accident.

Also, the personal injury claims calculator can factor in special damages such as the cost of a rental car or repairs to your vehicle.

Deductions to a final compensation award due to split liability are also more common with road traffic accidents (RTA's).

Calculating compensation for a work injury

If you have been injured at work, our workplace injury compensation calculator will factor in special damages for any time you have had to take off work.

If you are still unable to work, our accident at work compensation calculator will also factor in loss of expected future earnings.

Unlike other injury circumstances, your compensation is less likely to be reduced even if you were partly responsible for your workplace injury.

Calculating compensation for an injury in a shop, bar or other public place

The method used to calculate compensation for an injury in a public place will depend on the cause.

If the owner or occupier of the premises was responsible, the general damages tables will be used to calculate your injury compensation.

However, if you were hurt in a criminal assault, CICA injury tariffs will be used to calculate your compensation instead.

Uninsured or untraceable drivers

Car crash accident payouts may be reduced if the driver who caused the accident is unidentified (e.g. a hit and run) or is uninsured.

Unidentified or uninsured driver claims will usually be lower, as they will be handled by the Motor Insurers Bureau (MIB).  The MIB may calculate your compensation using a different tariff scale.

Criminal injuries compensation (CICA)

Compensation for criminal injuries paid by the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) is calculated based on a specific CICA tariff of injuries. Read more: Making a claim through the CICA.

Will anything be added to my compensation?

Yes. Once your general and special damages have been added together, the total may be adjusted as follows:

Details Added by

Plus 10% rule

If you signed a No Win, No Fee agreement after 2013, your final compensation award will be increased by 10% to offset the impact of the success fee deduction.

Judicial College Guidelines

Multiple injuries increase

If you have suffered several injuries, your general damages will be increased accordingly. Read more about multiple injuries

Judicial College Guidelines/solicitor negotiation/ court decision

Will anything be deducted from my compensation?

Probably - depending on the circumstances of your accident and the no win, no fee terms you agree with your chosen solicitor:

Details Deducted by

Split liability deduction

If you were partly to blame for the accident, you can usually still claim, but your compensation will be reduced.

Your solicitor will negotiate with the defendant’s lawyer to apportion (as a percentage) blame between you and the defendant. This percentage is used to calculate how much your award will be reduced.

For example, if you were 50% responsible for your injuries, you would receive 50% less compensation.

Judicial College Guidelines

Success fee deduction

Solicitors working on a No Win, No Fee basis charge nothing if a claim is unsuccessful. Solicitors will charge a success fee if the claim is successful.

By law, success fees are restricted to a maximum of 25% of the total settlement and maybe less.

So if you are awarded £8,000 compensation, up to £2,000 will be deducted by your solicitor as their success fee.

NB. With Quittance, you will be able to agree the success fee with your solicitor before starting your claim.

Terms of your chosen solicitor's no win, no fee agreement/MOJ

ATE Insurance deduction

Solicitors frequently advise claimants to take out an 'After the Event (ATE)' insurance policy on top of the no win, no fee agreement.

ATE insurance covers the legal costs which a claimant must pay to a defendant if their claim is unsuccessful.

Counterintuitively, you would only have to pay for an ATE policy if your claim is successful.  The cost of the policy would be deducted from your compensation.

Terms of your chosen solicitor's no win, no fee agreement

No win, no fee terms

Some no win, no fee agreements only cover the solicitor's fees. Costs that are not covered might include medical expert fees, barrister's fees or the costs of the other side's solicitors as they defend the claim. These costs can run into thousands of pounds.

Some no win no fee agreements have penalty or termination clauses if you change your mind.

NB. With Quittance, there are no termination or cancellation fees.

Terms of your chosen solicitor's no win, no fee agreement

Tax deduction

If you receive financial compensation following an injury, specific legislation ensures that you do not have to pay tax on it.

However, if you receive interest on the compensation award, the party paying the interest will deduct tax from the interest before the payment is made. See a tax deduction example.

HMRC

Benefits deduction

Although not strictly a deduction, your entitlement to receive future means-tested benefits (such as housing benefit or Universal Credit) may be affected.

Government means-tested assessment

See an example of tax deduction calculation;

A claimant sustained an injury on 1 January 2013 and brought a claim, which was eventually settled on 14 July 2014.

An award of £20,650 was made, which represented £20,000 damages and £650 for the interest from 1 January 2013 to 14 July 2014.

In this example, tax would be payable on the £20,650 as the interest (already tax-deducted) represents the amount that the claimant would have accrued had the £20,000 been paid on the day of the injury up until the date of settlement.

Is there anything else that could affect my compensation calculation?

Most injury claims do not go to court. Compensation is usually agreed (or “settled”) as part of a negotiation between your solicitor and the defendant’s lawyers or insurance company.

The defendant’s solicitors will use tactics to attempt to reduce the compensation amount, such as making a 'low-ball' early offer.

Your solicitor may request more time to negotiate or to gather more evidence. More time may also mean that the extent of your symptoms becomes clearer, so a more accurate compensation calculation can be made.

Personal injury compensation levels will rarely exceed the figures set out in the general damages tables, so the negotiation process can be crucial. This is particularly true if you need the compensation award to fund care costs, or to pay for treatment or necessary adaptations to your home.

Compensation awards will soon change (from April 2020)

The law relating to personal injury claims is changing in April 2020.

No win, no fee

With a no win, no fee agreement (known as a 'Conditional Fee Agreement' or 'CFA') you can make an injury claim without having to pay upfront legal fees. If your injury claim is unsuccessful you won't have to pay any money to your solicitor.

Our no win, no fee promise

Our no win, no fee guarantee means there is no financial risk in making an injury claim, even if you don't win your claim.

What do I pay if I win my injury claim?

Your injury solicitor will receive a success fee which is deducted from your compensation, after your compensation is awarded. The solicitor's success fee can be up to 25%. You and your solicitor can agree the success fee before you start your claim.

What do I pay if I do not win my injury claim?

If your injury claim is not successful then you will not have to pay any legal fees. Your solicitor may take out insurance to ensure there will be nothing to pay.

Compensation calculator FAQ's

How accurate are online claims calculators?

Compensation calculators take into account the nature and severity of your injury. Calculators then refer to the Judicial College Guidelines to give an upper and lower estimate of the likely compensation award you could receive.

Online compensation calculators have been available on personal injury solicitors websites for a number of years. However, many of these rely on out-of-date data and do not consider recent changes to the law.

What do I need to be aware of when using an online injury calculator

Disclaimer - 2019 Claims Calculator

The injury compensation calculator refers to the Guidelines for the Assessment of General Damages in Personal Injury Cases, Fourteenth Edition by the Judicial College.

The general damages and special damages you receive will ultimately be calculated according to the circumstances of your case. Personal injury compensation payouts for general damages vary according to the severity of the injury and how quickly you recover.

Our online compensation calculator includes the 10% uplift in general damages in line with the Jackson reforms recommendation for claims funded by a conditional fee agreement (CFA). Cases initiated before 1st April 2013 may receive 10% less in general damages than indicated in the calculator.

Every attempt has been made to make all the information contained in this compensation payout guide and in the personal injury claims calculator as accurate as possible. However, the injury claims calculator is intended as a guide only.

Your solicitor will need to collate more information about your situation to be able to give you a more detailed idea of your potential personal injury compensation amount.
