Fast, effective and knowledgeable, they were able to secure an excellent settlement for me and I without doubt will recommend them to anyone in need of legal help.”

How Will My Car Accident Compensation Claim Be Calculated?

If you instruct us to represent you in your claim, we will ask our medical experts to assess your injuries and prepare reports detailing the extent of your injuries. They will also look at the likely future impact of the accident on your wellbeing so that a value can be put on your pain and suffering and any loss of quality of life.

Accident Claim Compensation Calculator

The sum you are awarded will be calculated with reference to guidelines issued by the Judicial College. Their guidelines are extensive, covering most types of injury, and we can advise you on their estimates for your injuries. By way of example, the following are their guidelines for back, neck and shoulder injuries:

  • Minor back injury with soft tissue damage, slipped disc or muscle pain: £2,300-£11,730;
  • Moderate back injury with ligament or soft tissue damage and constant discomfort or pain: £11,730-£36,390;
  • Severe back injury with possible organ damage or some paralysis: £36,390-£151,070;
  • Minor neck injury such as whiplash: £2,300-£7,410;
  • Moderate neck injury with some fracturing, pain, stiffness, reduced movement: £7,410-£36,120;
  • Severe neck injury with movement difficulties and severe pain: £42,680 upwards to around £139,210;
  • Minor shoulder injury with soft tissue damage and minor pain that will recover in around one year: £2,300-£11,730;
  • Moderate shoulder injury with tissue damage and restricted arm movement: £7,410-£11,980;
  • Serious should injury with numbness or paralysis and restricted movement: £11,980-£18,020.

The guidelines are only a starting point for the assessment of the value of a claim. There are other factors that will be taken into account, such as the psychological effect of the incident, the level of pain and disability involved and the combination of injuries you may have.

If you would like to talk to one of our legal experts about your particular injuries to discuss what compensation you might expect to receive, we will be happy to hear from you.

“I instructed Michael McGee to deal with a car accident claim. I found his assistance and experience excellent and the outcome of my claim was great. If I ever require a solicitor in the future I will look no further than Michael McGee.”

Financial Losses

We will also put together a list of the financial losses you have suffered and make a claim for these. This is known as a claim for special damages. You will be able to claim for these as well as the compensation for your injuries themselves.

The largest element of special damages is usually loss of earnings and potentially loss of future earnings. Other expenses could include travel costs to medical appointments, replacement of damaged items such as glasses or clothing, the purchase of items you need to cope with your injuries such as supports or equipment and the cost of prescriptions.

If your home needs to be adapted in any way, the costs of this can be claimed as well as the cost of additional care or therapy that you may need and any help with domestic tasks that you can no longer manage.

You are also entitled to claim for losses related to activities that you have paid for but been unable to undertake, such as a holiday you have booked or gym membership that you cannot use. We will go through your claim with you in detail to ensure that you are properly compensated for all of your accident-related losses.

“I could not believe that I received £8,500 in compensation. I came to Michael McGee on a whim and he and the team dealt with my case. I did not think I would get anything and I did not think a Solicitor would even take the case on. My case was unusual and I was not sure if there was any point in pursuing it. I kept 100% of my compensation as well. I am really grateful to Michael, he provided a great service. I did not have to do anything and only visited the office a couple of times.”
