A Compensation Calculator doesn’t really exist. It’s a tool perpetuated by companies to try to persuade clients to accept specific services. This is basic marketing – a support tool.
Yes an algorithm can be created to calculate an estimate for a whiplash compensation claim or work injury claim, but ultimately that estimation is still only a guess. Yes they can give you a figure of expected compensation however, remember it is an estimate only, not the actual amount of compensation you would receive.
Think of it like applying for a credit card or to do a balance transfer – one bank may reject your application but another will accept because they both base their borrowing algorithms on different metrics. That’s the reality. A nice looking form on a website that generates a compensation amount for a brain injury or leg injury is unlikely to reflect the actual amount that a client will receive at the end. Consequently, in some cases it will be correct, at other times it won’t be. These things are very difficult to predict rather than offering actual amounts based on reality.
TAKE A LOOK AT THE COMPENSATION LIST BELOW, which will give you some idea of compensation amounts. A calculator isn’t necessary!
Many people ask these types of question for example: How much for a Back injury settlement?
It really depends on the severity of the injury. You can see more personal injury questions here. No two people have the same case. Factors that influence a case include:
- Type of injury
- How the injury occurred
- Personal injury trauma
- Length of diagnosis
- When the injury occurred
- Gender, Age, Health
- Recovery process
- Legal costs
- No Win No Fee agreement
