Our Car Accident Compensation Calculator tool above will give provisional results as to compensation settlement amounts associated with your type of injury. This tool will not take in to account other aspects that can increase your likely settlement figure, such as, potential loss of earnings or costs of treatments to help you on your road to recovery ie. 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.
How calculating car accident compensation works?
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 calculators often consider the likely impact on you 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 contributory factors must be taken in to 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:
- Medical bills such as treatments, therapy, surgeries and medications
- Travel expenses, (possibly the result of having to attend medical appointments), due to the loss of a vehicle
- Repairs to, or replacement of, your vehicle
- In the most severe cases Your home or next vehicle may need modification vehicle
- Mobility aids
- Financial losses from being unable to return to work

Who can claim injury compensation following a car accident?
If you, or a member of your family have sustained injury 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 affects of the accident, you could still be in a position to claim compensation.
It is the best course of action to speak with a specialist Car Accident Compensation Claims Lawyer 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 best as the incident will still be fresh in the mind.
