Specialist UK solicitor explains how a compensation claim calculator in the UK is used to calculate the amount of compensation you can receive in damages and how to have a free online assessment by a specialist personal injury lawyer
How is the amount of damages you can claim in compensation decided by your solicitor?
In any personal injury claim there are two main types of money which can be claimed in damages. What is known as general damages and special damages. A compensation claim calculator for each operates in a different way.
1. General damages for personal injury claims
General damages are concerned with the pain and suffering you experience from a physical or psychological injury. The courts have decided over many years and from deciding many cases at court how much you are entitled to claim for each type of injury you might suffer.

2. Special damages following a personal injury
Special damages are actual financial losses you might incur, such as lost wages due to absence from work recuperating, or expenses you suffer – such as the cost of medical treatment and painkillers to help your recover.
This loss depends on the individual. For example a premiership footballer will suffer a much larger weekly lost income than a builder for the same amount of time off work. There is no limit to the amount of compensation which can be claimed for special damages.
