Last updated on August 17th, 2021
How does the medical negligence claims calculator work?
The calculator is simple to use and provides guideline compensation amounts based on the type of injury you’ve suffered. To get started, simply:
- Select the area of your body that was affected (for example upper or lower body)
- Select the specific body part that was affected (this may be multiple injuries, so you can use the calculator more than once)
- Select how serious your injury was – minor, moderate or severe. For example, short-term damage might be considered minor, but life-changing injuries are severe.
How do you calculate a medical negligence claim?
Our calculators provide guideline figures based on your physical injuries. Our expert solicitors will be able to give you a much clearer figure once we have heard your medical negligence claim.
What our medical negligence calculator includes
The calculator works by analysing the severity of ‘general damages’, which are the physical and mental damages you’ve suffered. Your claim estimate will vary depending on how serious your damages are.
For example, medical negligence during childbirth could result in a child’s oxygen being cut off, which would be long-term, severe damage and a much higher value claim.
What our medical negligence calculator doesn’t include
When we receive your medical negligence claim, we’ll also factor in loss of earnings and other costs, which are known as ‘special damages’. Our injury compensation claims calculator does not include this, so your claim could be worth more depending on your situation.
Depending on how severe your injury, you may need to pay out for adjustments to your home, or take time off work. We will consider all of this when processing your no win, no fee medical negligence claim.
What are the medical negligence claim figures based on?
This compensation calculator is based on the average settlement amounts of other recent medical negligence claims, as awarded by a judge. We regularly update these to give the most accurate figures.
The Judicial Board Guidelines can also offer guidance on specific compensation amounts based on injury to certain body parts. For example:
- Injuries to internal organs could be as high as £146,000
- Injuries which paralyse all or part of the body can range from £39,000 to £322,000
- Injuries resulting in brain damage or sensory loss could be as high as £322,000.

How do I know if I can make a medical negligence claim?
You may be able to make a medical negligence compensation claim if your healthcare provider has caused you harm. By law, both private and NHS healthcare providers have a duty of care to keep you safe. Most often, medical negligence claims are the result of staff negligence, for example, making mistakes during surgery or misdiagnosing patients.
If these mistakes have led to your physical harm, you could make a compensation claim. The Express Solicitors medical negligence claims calculator will help you to see what you could claim based on your injuries.
