What is a Compensation Calculator?

A compensation calculator is a practical online tool that helps estimate the potential accident payout for someone with a legitimate personal injury claim. Typically, settlement calculators consider various factors, including the injury severity and its effect on the claimant’s life.

Online compensation estimators are particularly useful for people with workplace injuries or harmed in a motor vehicle accident, giving them a better understanding of the potential financial settlements they might receive.

While personal injury calculators provide a helpful estimate, please understand that the lump sum payment can vary depending on your lawyer’s negotiation skills, the type of case, and the insurance company’s policies funding the compensation payout.

How Much is My Compensation Claim Worth?

Under Australian law, ‘heads of damages’ are used when deciding the economic and non-economic damages determining the value of a compensation claim. These are the primary factors used to calculate the extent of the loss when someone breaches their owed duty of care and causes harm to another party. Depending on your circumstance, you may receive a damages payout that includes the following:

 

Medical Benefits 

Payment for medical costs like hospital and ambulance, physiotherapy, rehabilitation expenses, and specialist or doctor appointments.

Lost Income 

You can lodge a claim for lost pay and super when you need time away from work to recuperate. Generally, if you have a permanent impairment or disability, you can also claim for future lost income.

Travel Costs 

Repayment of out-of-pocket expenses such as travel expenses for medical or therapeutic purposes.

Pain and Suffering (Lost enjoyment of life)

Fair compensation is available when you suffer pain from a physical injury, as well as for emotional distress and psychological harm.

 

What Types of Injuries Are Included?

When calculating an injury compensation payout, there are many types of injuries. Regardless of whether you have a physical injury, illness, psychological disorder, or emotional trauma, you are typically eligible to get lump sum compensation when involved in an accident that was not your fault. Below are some common types of injuries covered by our compensation checker.

Minor injuries might cause someone pain and discomfort, causing them to take time off work. Cuts and abrasions can leave lasting scars and lead to infections if not treated promptly.

Cuts, abrasions, sprains, bruises, and small fractures are examples of minor injuries that frequently result in compensation for medical expenses, prescriptions, transport costs, out-of-pocket expenses, and general damages.

Moderate injuries require a more extended recovery than minor ones, typically resulting in higher compensation payments. Although this type of injury typically results in a full recovery, it may still require ongoing medical treatment and result in lost wages.

If you have broken bones or fractures, injuries to the arm, wrist, head, elbow, shoulder, back, neck, and spine, and damage to the legs, feet, and ankles, you most likely have a moderate injury. Additionally, car accidents frequently result in medium soft tissue injuries like whiplash, which limit movement, require time off work, and significantly disrupt everyday living.

Catastrophic & severe injuries are those that lead to long-term illness or damage, permanent impairment and disability. These types of injuries are often life-changing, requiring ongoing medical treatment, rehabilitation, additional personal care, and the inability to work.

Common examples of serious injuries include traumatic brain damage, spinal cord injuries, amputations, severe burns, loss of vision, lost hearing, and multiple fractures. This damage often results in reduced mobility, long-lasting chronic pain, and loss of sensory functions.

If you have broken bones or fractures, injuries to the arm, wrist, head, elbow, shoulder, back, neck, and spine, and damage to the legs, feet, and ankles, you most likely have a moderate injury. Additionally, car accidents frequently result in medium soft tissue injuries like whiplash, which limit movement, require time off work, and significantly disrupt everyday living.

Soft tissue injuries include damage to the body’s muscles, tendons, and ligaments, commonly caused by sudden impacts found in traffic accidents and slips and falls. Another type of soft tissue damage is repetitive strain injuries, brought on by repeated use of a bodily part.

Whiplash is a common soft tissue injury when the neck is violently jerked forwards and backwards in a sudden impact, like a car accident. Consequently, hurt neck ligaments and muscles cause symptoms like headaches, dizziness, and neck pain.

Psychological illness is often associated with traumatic accidents, like personal injuries sustained in road accidents, workplace injuries, public place accidents, etc.

Compensable mental health conditions include major depression, bipolar disorder, Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), emotional trauma and other psychiatric injuries.

If a psychological injury has impacted you, our mental illness lawyers can help you understand your legal right to claim.
