HOW TO CALCULATE HOW MUCH COMPENSATION YOU CAN CLAIM

In order to accurately answer the question, “How much personal injury compensation can I get?” we would first need to review the medical evidence and consider the details of the injury. There are tariffs that the courts follow when awarding compensation but we can also factor in any loss of earnings to the total amount claimed.

It is a common misconception that an injury is worth one specific amount. The amount of compensation received will vary from claim to claim. Instead, the amount is calculated based on how the accident has affected your everyday life, your ability to work and the length of time it takes for you to recover from the injuries you have sustained.

The object of compensation is to provide you with something for your injury and to enable you to return to the financial position you were in prior to suffering a personal injury.

How Much Compensation Will I Get For My Injury Claim?

We have the experience of helping people claim for a variety of injuries, covering everything from accidents at work, car accident and motorbike accidents and even whiplash neck injuries, right through to injuries sustained from slips, trips and falls.

Over the years we have worked with a variety of clients presenting a range of injuries, many of whom had their cases turned down by other firms before going on to be won by us.

The personal injury claim amount that you can receive is not just dependant on the injury itself, your claim can also factor in loss of earnings through work and money spent on travel, treatment and care during your recovery. Though we are not guaranteed to recover all of these additional costs, we can certainly try to do so.

What costs are involved?

We operate on a no win, no fee basis which means there is no financial risk to you in pursuing a claim. We only claim for legal fees when your case is successful* so you will never be “out of pocket” as a result of your claim.

*Terms and conditions apply

In 2014/15, our average
compensation recovery was
£11,567.212

How long does an injury claim take?

Personal Injury Claim Calculator

It’s difficult to give an exact figure of how long it is likely to take to make a claim as there are many vary factors to take into consideration such as the severity of the injury, how the other side responds and the circumstances of the accident.

We know you want to sort out your claim as quickly as possible which is why we aim to give an accurate timeline of events once we have spoken to you and assessed the situation fully.

Do I need any additional protection under the No win No fee agreement?

Our team may advise you to take out additional cover depending on the type of claim you are making.

Whilst we will make no charge for our professional services in the event that your claim is unsuccessful*, you may choose to take out cover to protect you against any disbursements which you may be liable for in an unsuccessful case.

Our team will be able to explain all of this in more detail at the beginning of your claim.

Smith Jones have a high success rate for personal injury cases and our team will always inform and advise you accordingly. We go that extra mile to maximise client settlement amounts – In cases that have been brought before a ‘Stage 3’ hearing, our team have secured an average 84% higher settlement than the defendant’s final offer.

*Further details can be found in your Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA).

How severe is my injury?

Classifying how severe your injury is can be difficult which is why we advise you should seek medical attention where required.
During the course of your claim we will arrange for a medical expert to compile a report in order to understand the full extent of your injuries.
This will be arranged for you at a location and time convenient to you and the evidence provided in the report will be used to support your claim for compensation.

When using our compensation claim calculator the following can be used as a guideline for determining how severe your injury is:

MINOR Injury sustained has caused damage that took several days / weeks to recover from
MODERATE Injury sustained has caused damage that took months to recover from
MODERATELY SEVERE Injury sustained has caused long lasting damage or only a partial recovery has been achieved
SEVERE Injury sustained has caused life altering or permanent damage

Taken from ‘Guidelines for the Assessment of General Damages in Personal Injury Cases’, Thirteenth Edition (2015) by Judicial College. Each settlement will be valued according to the individual merits of each case. Please note that even the most severe cases brought before 1st April 2013 may settle for approximately 10% less than indicated in the calculator due to changes in legislation. This claims calculator is intended as a guide only. Your own Solicitor will be able to advise you of the settlement you could be entitled to and will be able to offer more tailored guidance through the settlement stages of your claim. Smith Jones do not currently accept claims that we believe will settle for under £1000 therefore in some injury types, the minimum figure has been replaced with £1000 where the guidelines may have quoted a lesser amount.
