Car Accident Compensation Calculator for Car Accident Claim Settlements
If you have been injured in a car accident and want to know the level of compensation you may be entitled to claim, then our informative Car Accident Compensation Claims Calculator can offer a useful insight into the potential value of your claim.
At Sheldon Davidson Solicitors, we are committed to ensuring that you receive the best medical care, calling on our established network of partners, from physiotherapists to counsellors, rehabilitation specialists to medical experts, to help you on the road to recovery.
Once any immediate health concerns have been assessed and catered for, or, in the case of more serious injuries, once any ongoing requirements for long-term care and support have been arranged, then your thoughts will rightly move on to the level of compensation that can be expected and how it can best be used to ensure the victim recovers to the fullest extent possible.
Whilst only a guide, our Car Accident Compensation Calculator may be a useful tool in helping you understand the bracket of 'general damages' that your injuries or the injuries of a loved one, could be classified at.
What compensation can you expect?
Following our initial conversation with you, we will be in a much stronger position to understand more accurately what compensation you can expect following an injury sustained during an RTA.
The amount of compensation you will eventually receive following injury in a road traffic accident can vary significantly depending on the circumstances of the accident, and the extent of your injuries.
The table below serves only as an initial guide with General Damages compensation values being taken from the Judicial College Guidelines (JCG). Complex cases and complex injuries require detailed assessment by our RTA Injury Claims team.
We must point out that as of 1/6/21, new fixed tariffs exist for Soft-tissue (whiplash) injury compensation claims, where the injury was sustained because of a car accident. Information on new tariffs is available in the lower part of this page.
Car Accident Claim Compensation Settlement Value Guide
The figures directly below are an indication of the recommended settlement amounts of the injury alone without taking into consideration any other losses or damages caused by the incident which may increase the value of a claim.
The true value of any compensation claim can only be made when full details of the accident are known.
Please note, these figures do not cover new soft-tissue fixed compensation tariffs for RTA Soft tissue (whiplash) injury,

How Car Accident Compensation Calculators Work
Car Accident Compensation Calculators will typically provide a conservative estimation of the ‘General Damages’ element of your Car Accident Compensation Claim, giving a figure that is sometimes significantly lower than the likely amount you may be entitled to claim. This is mainly because such tools are unable to consider the unique details of each individual case.
As with all compensation calculators, our calculator tool will give provisional results as to the ‘General Damages’ typically awarded for your type and severity of injury. This tool does not, however, take into account other factors that have the potential to significantly increase your compensation settlement value, such as, loss of earnings, medical costs, and the cost of rehabilitative care.
Whilst Road Traffic Accident Compensation Calculators give useful insight into the level of compensation you might be able to expect, they are certainly no substitute for a detailed claim assessment by a fully qualified Car Accident Claims Solicitor.
So, if you or a loved one have been injured in a car accident that wasn’t your fault, call Sheldon Davidson Solicitors and let us help you start your claim for car accident injury compensation.
