When calculating compensation for personal injury claims, several factors are used to determine the extent of your damages. Typically, loss is calculated using “heads of damages” as stipulated by the QLD Civil Liability Act 2003.
The financial elements of a compensation claim that contribute towards the value of a successful payout include economic and non-economic factors, include:
A damages payout aims to restore your life to where it would be had your accident not happened. Therefore, your unique compensation value is calculated by how much your life has changed because of your illness, physical injury or psychiatric disorder.
For example, an injured leg will significantly impact your capacity to work if you are a construction worker compared to an office employee sitting at a desk all day.

You will likely want to calculate your injury damages settlement when you think you have a valid legal claim. A claim for personal injury can result when someone’s complete or partial negligence injures another person.
In Queensland, it is common for people to be injured in car accidents, slip and fall accidents, workplace accidents, accidents on private property and many other situations.
To have a successful injury claim, the injured party must provide evidence that the other person/party was responsible for the accident that caused them to be damaged.
If you have suffered an accident and have a permanent impairment injury, it may affect your quality of life, and you could be eligible for permanent disability compensation. Damage can occur in various situations, such as a car crash, on the job, while performing work duties, or in public venues, including shopping centres, supermarkets, and other public areas.
The costs associated with long-term caregiving and rehabilitation can be significant. You will struggle to pay these costs when you cannot work due to a disability. A successful personal injury claim can provide financial relief. Use our permanent impairment calculator to know the benefits you can claim.
The value of Queensland personal injury claims is usually confidential and only becomes public if there is a court judgement, which is rare.
