* Information taken from Judicial College Guidelines for the Assessment of General Damages in Personal Injury Cases – 13th Edition. – please note that these figures are for guidance only and the compensation that you receive may be outside of these guidelines.


If you or a family member has suffered a personal injury and it wasn’t your fault then you could make a personal injury claim to compensate for your pain and suffering, as well as loss of income. Personal injury claims are extremely common in the UK, with many accidents occurring every day, both in the workplace and elsewhere. For this reason it’s very useful to be aware of your rights.

How much compensation can I claim for personal injury?

When you have suffered a personal injury and want to make a compensation claim then it’s natural that you’ll want to know how much money you can expect to receive. The amount of compensation you receive for a personal injury will depend on certain key factors. These include:

  • Type of injury
  • The severity of your injury
  • The loss of earnings as a result of your injuries, both now and in the future
  • Pain and suffering
  • Additional costs of living
  • Necessary additions to your homes such as having a stair lift installed; and
  • Medical costs including treatment and medication


Our injury claim calculator can help you get a good idea of how much compensation you are likely to be given based on your injuries alone.

Knowing how much compensation you can get will help you to decide whether or not you want to make a claim.


How are compensation payouts calculated?

Personal injury claim payouts are split into two areas: General damages and Special damages. The General damages compensate the Claimant for the pain and suffering they have endured as a result of the injury, and therefore depend on the severity of the injury and the level of negligence that led to it.

Special damages reimburse the Claimant for any costs and expenses they incurred as a result of the accident e.g. loss of earnings, travel costs, medical treatment and rehabilitation costs etc…

Payout amounts are arrived at by taking into account the nature and severity of the injury, and then refer to the Judicial College Guidelines which give an upper or lower limit to the amount the Claimant is entitled to.

What types of personal injury can I claim for?

A personal injury claim can be anything where you feel a third party is liable for an injury that you have sustained. Some common types of personal injury claims include:

  • Workplace accidents and injuries
  • Accidents whilst on holiday
  • Injuries sustained in a car crash
  • Medical negligence claims; and
  • Slip, trip or falling over in public premises


Use Our Personal Injury Calculator to Find Out How Much You Could Claim

Cute Injury’s easy-to-use personal injury claim calculator can help you to find out how much money you could be owed for your personal injury claim. We also have a specific medical negligence compensation calculator and a whiplash compensation calculator.

Whilst our personal injury claims calculator cannot tell you down to the last penny how much compensation you are likely to get, it will give you a good idea of the average payout for your type of injury, enabling you to decide if you want to pursue legal action.
