Injury Settlement Calculator -- Estimate the Value of Your Injury Claim

Calculating  the fair settlement value of  a personal injury claim is not as straightforward as you might think. But it is possible to get a ballpark estimate of your compensable damages by plugging a few key numbers into a rough damages formula, one  that is often followed by insurance adjusters and others who try to put a dollar value on all the different variables  that come into play in an injury case.  

The first thing you'll need to do is get all your claim-related documents and  records together. That means medical bills, pay stubs, records of time missed at work, property damage estimates, and anything else that will give you a strong (though not necessarily definitive) sense of  the dollar value of all your losses associated with you injury (so far).

Next, after you plug your information into the calculator below, what you'll see is a very  rough estimate of the value of your injury claim, broken up into economic and non-economic damages (these are explained in more detail below).      

Remember that there is no  one foolproof method  that will tell you exactly what your injury claim is worth, or what you'll end up receiving after a settlement or personal injury trial. Resolution of any injury claim usually turns on far too many variables -- including the  art and skill of successful negotiation -- for you to reasonably rely  on  numbers that have been crunched on a website.

NOTE: In the fields below, be sure to enter a "0" if a category of damages does not apply to your case. The calculator has trouble with blank fields.

Economic Damages vs. Non-Economic Damages

After you enter your numbers and hit "Calculate," the two dollar figures you see  above the "Estimated Total Compensation" field represent the two main types of damages that  arise in the majority of injury  cases: economic  losses  and non-economic losses. Economic damages are fairly easy to calculate (and to prove through documentation), including the cost of past and future medical treatment, lost income (past and future), and any property damage tied to your case. Non-economic damages are consequences of an injury that are harder to put a dollar figure on -- things like pain and suffering,  and the emotional impact of  your  injuries and the underlying accident.
