How do I know if I can make a car accident claim?

You may be able to make a road traffic accident claim if you were involved in an accident that wasn’t your fault, for example, if another driver was driving without due care and attention. If you’ve suffered an injury on the road, our car accident compensation calculator can offer guidelines on what you can claim.

How does the car accident claims calculator work?

This car accident claims calculator is simple to use. It provides a compensation estimate based on the extent of your physical injury. To use the calculator, simply:

  1. Select the area of your body that was affected (for example, upper or lower body)
  2. Select the specific body part that was affected (for example, neck or arms)
  3. Select how serious your injury was – minor, moderate or severe. Serious car accidents may result in severe injuries, which will make your settlement amount higher.

How do you calculate a car accident claim?

Our car accident claims calculator works by analysing your physical and mental damages. When you start a road traffic accident claim with Express Solicitors, we’ll factor in these damages as well as the long-term impact on your life, to make sure you get as large a compensation settlement as possible.

What our car accident calculator includes

Our injury compensation calculator looks at ‘general damages’, which are physical and mental damages as a result of your accident. The more serious your injury, the higher your estimate is likely to be. Our experienced road traffic accident solicitors can give you a more accurate figure.

What our car accident calculator doesn’t include

The calculator does not include any costs you may have had to pay because of your injury. Any costs or loss of earnings are known as ‘special damages’. If you’ve been in a car accident, you may have had a significant financial loss if you took time off work or needed several hospital appointments.

Both general and special damages form part of your final road traffic accident claim. Our experienced solicitors will look at every part of your case to make sure you get the largest settlement possible.

What are the car accident claim figures based on?

The injury compensation claim calculator provides results based on average settlements from previous claims, as awarded by judges. These change all the time, so we update them regularly to give you accurate figures.

For more guidelines, we can look at the Judicial Board, which offers example compensation amounts based on specific types of injuries. For example:

  • Shoulder injuries can range from £6,000 to £38,000
  • Arm and wrist injuries can range from £2,000 to £100,000
  • Neck and back injuries can range from £6,000 to £120,000
  • Head injuries can range from £5,000 to £300,000.
