An online Car Accident Compensation Calculator information below will give provisional results on compensation settlement amounts associated with your type of injury.

Physiotherapists.
There are many more factors for you and us to consider, so please call today and do not rely solely on figures from this Car Accident Compensation Calculator or others you may come across online.

The compensation amount you will eventually receive as a result of the injury sustained in a road traffic accident can vary a great deal depending on the circumstances of the accident, and the extent of your injuries.

Paul Rossiter LLB Law
I qualified as a solicitor in 1998 and worked as a Personal Injury Specialist throughout my legal career, dealing with high value serious injury cases obtaining both compensation and rehabilitation for my clients. I was a member of APIL (Association Of Personal injury Lawyers) and recognised by the Law Society as being a Senior Personal Injury Solicitor.
After working in various law firms, both small high street firms and a larger practice in Manchester, I saw a gap in the market for a high quality practice that had the same core high street values of being personable and approachable and combining them with the efficiency and professionalism of a larger practice. PSR Solicitors was therefore established in 2009 and since then PSR Solicitors has provided high quality legal services to local clients throughout North Wales and Cheshire.
I live in Chester with my young family and 2 dogs and enjoy regular holidays along the coast of North Wales and Ibiza.
I have recently been asked to join the board of trustees at Platform For Life, a mental health counselling charity in Chester. Good mental health is the foundation of a more fulfilled, happy and healthy life, yet many families struggle to access the help and support they need to achieve it. Platform for Life offers free local counselling and play therapy for families who would otherwise not be able to afford it.

As an experienced personal injury and civil litigation Solicitor, I represent Claimants in all manner of personal injury case work including injuries as a result of Road Traffic Accidents, Accidents at Work, and Occupiers Liability Accidents.

I completed my law degree and legal practice course at Nottingham Law School, before qualifying as a solicitor in 2004. I then worked at a specialist personal injury firm in the East Midlands and a leading regional firm, before joining PSR in 2017.
With PSR I've continued to specialise in acting for Personal Injury claimants and have developed a keen understanding of the procedures and tactics involved in pursuing a claim, as well as the difficulties and concerns faced by people who have suffered as the result of an accident.
Since 2014 I've been proud to help hundreds of people. I've represented the public in all manner of injury claims, including serious orthopaedic injuries, brain damage, and psychological trauma. I was instructed to deal with claims for clients in the aftermath of the Potters Bar rail crash and the Penhallow hotel fire.
In addition, I represent clients in relation to all manner of disputes. I have dealt with professional negligence claims, such as those against solicitors and builders. I have helped clients recover money which is due to them and to dispute invoices which have been sent to them. I have helped business defend claims against them. I have tackled neighbour and boundary disputes.
I live locally to the Colwyn Bay office, and outside of work, I enjoy taking advantage of the coastal and mountain outdoor activities which are available on the doorstep. I'm also heavily involved with an outdoor pursuits charity, which I find an enjoyable and rewarding way of using my free time.

The table follows guidelines for injury compensation settlement amounts as stipulated by the Judicial Board Guidelines. Specifically, these compensation guidelines focus on the severity of your Personal Injury and the physiology surrounding your particular injury. The tool bases compensation values solely on ‘General Damages’.
General Damages are directly related to what types of injury you have sustained and the severity of such injuries to specific parts of the body. Car Accident Compensation Calculator values often consider the likely impact on your future well-being depending on the degree of injury, when presenting compensation settlement amounts.
‘Special damages’ may also be applicable following your injury. Special Damages will go on to include additional expenses that you may have incurred because of your injury following a road traffic accident, such as travel costs and medical bills, etc.
Other factors must be taken into account as future implications that may include long-lasting debilitating physical health problems that could stop you from working. There are many more long-term implications that need careful consideration if you have been left with life-changing injuries.
Special Damages would generally include:
Do not leave anything to chance. Call PSR Solicitors today for the best advice and representation in respect of your health and financial well-being. We can assist you right through the injury claim process while also ensuring your recovery and wellness are totally catered for.
There are many factors that must be considered when calculating your potential settlement amount. First, you should make sure to follow the proper protocol immediately following your accident: this will ensure you minimise your injuries and damages, and have a strong body of evidence in the event of a compensation claim.
Following our initial conversation with you, we will be in a much stronger position to more accurately understand what amount of car crash compensation payout you can expect based on your injury sustained during the road traffic accident.
Once we have talked, we will also be able to advise you properly on whether you have a claim for injury compensation, and we will be able to describe what must happen if you are intent on starting proceedings toward recovering compensation. Please remember that we work on a No Win, No Fee basis. This means you do not have to worry about money or funding legal fees while your case matter is brought to a conclusion.
If you want to proceed with your compensation claim, we will require access to medical records for review and examination by our specialists. PSR Solicitors can also call on specialist medical expertise should injuries be complex, either due to severity or, existing underlying health matters.
If your case is successfully concluded for under £5,000.00 then you will receive compensation subject to the fixed legal costs as set out below. These fixed legal costs are calculated based on the separate awards for both your tariff and non tariff injuries. If your case is unsuccessful then you will obviously receive no compensation but you will have no legal costs to pay.
Legal costs relating to tariff injuries are fixed and are calculated based upon the level of compensation that your tariff injury qualifies for.
The injury tariff is set by the Government and is shown in the table below.
(Click to enlarge)
The figures detailed above are non-negotiable, they are a set tariff which the government has introduced. Compensation awards for soft tissue injuries resulting from a car accident are now approximately only 25% of the value of compensation awards made for accidents before the 1st of June 2021.
Personal injury clients will be sent for a medical examination where the examiner will indicate a likely recovery period. The Medical expert decides and records in his report - the fixed amount of compensation you will receive.
Please note that this only applies to soft tissue injuries following a car accident that occurred after the 1st of June 2021.
Legal costs relating to non tariff injuries are additional to the above fixed costs for tariff injuries are fixed and are calculated based upon the level of compensation that your non tariff injury receives:
Non tariff injury value Costs
Up to £1000.00 £250.00
Between £1000.00 and £2,000.00 £500.00
Between £2000.00 and £3,000.00 £750.00
Between £2,000.00 and £4,000.00 £1000.00
Between £4,000.00 and £5,000.00 £1250.00
If the tariff and non tariff compensation awards exceed £5,000.00 then your case will no longer be subject to the Fixed Legal Costs as outlined above.
Instead, you will receive compensation subject to the agreed deductions as set out in the Conditional Fee Agreement and limited to a total of 25% of the damages you receive. If your case is unsuccessful then you will obviously receive no compensation but you will have no legal costs to pay.
Our costs are inclusive of VAT.
If you or a member of your family have sustained major or minor injuries as a result of being involved in a road traffic accident or crash that involves other drivers, then you may be entitled to claim compensation for your loss and injuries. Even where you may have been at partial fault in causing the accident or could have taken positive action to minimise the effects of the accident, you could still be in a position to claim compensation.
It is the best course of action to speak with one of our specialist Car Accident Injury Lawyers at the earliest convenience. Having these discussions immediately (or at least as soon as you or a loved one is able to) is likely to be best as the incident will still be fresh in the mind. That being said, a time limit of 3 years is generally understood as the timeframe in which a claim must be made.
We place an emphasis on rehabilitation for our clients and consider medical support and treatment to be as important as financial compensation following an accident.
Our specialised expertise in road traffic accident claims means you can be sure of excellent legal advice and support, and as our ”No Win No Fee” promise implies, in most situations, we will be able to support your claim for compensation in this way. Rest assured that there are no upfront charges if you decide to proceed with PSR, and if you are unsuccessful with your claim and there is no award given to compensate you for your injuries, you will not have to worry about any legal costs as you will not have to pay anything.
PSR is a leading team of Personal Injury Solicitors in Wales and Serious Injury Lawyers in Cheshire. With offices in Colwyn Bay, Ellesmere Port, Rhyl, Shotton, Wrexham, Wallasey, and Chester, we have been established in the heart of local communities since 2009.
