How to use our workers’ compensation calculator


So, you think you’re entitled to compensation. . .

If you have been injured at work, it’s normal to think about making a workers’ compensation claim. It is also understandable if you want to have an idea of how much compensation you could be entitled to before deciding to file a claim.

Our free workers’ compensation calculator can help you do just that. It’s easy to use, and you can look at the workers’ comp payout chart it generates for more information.

So, how do you use it?

How to use the workers’ compensation calculator

It’s simple to use our workers’ compensation calculator. If you’re still tossing up the idea of making a workers’ compensation claim, our premium calculation tool is a good starting point to help you assess the total claims costs  that you may be eligible for. This is, in effect, a workers’ comp payout chart that our lawyers will talk you through to provide a deeper explanation.
You will need to provide:

  • A brief description of how the injury occurred
  • The date of the incident 
  • Figures of an estimated past and future economic loss
  • The number of hours a week spent under care assistance
  • Estimated reimbursement for expenses such as travel costs and lost wages

This calculator isn’t just for injured workers. If you have lost someone you loved due to an accident at work, you and any other dependents may be entitled to commence a death dependency claim.

It’s not just physical injuries that we deal with. We’ve provided legal advice to many people who have suffered from workplace incidents and placed successful stress-at-work claims. Suffering from stress can be just as debilitating as you would experience for a broken leg, since psychological injury can impact your life that much. As with all claims, our stress at work compensation calculator will assist you in knowing the amount of compensation for your work stress claim.

How is workers’ compensation calculated?

Calculating a workers’ compensation settlement is as simple as using our workplace injury calculator. It’s a great guide that will give you a rough idea of how much money you may be able to claim. The amount is ultimately determined by:

  • Your loss of income, including annual wages and superannuation benefits, past and future
  • Medical expenses and even the costs associated with medical negligence if your employer did not assist after you received your injury
  • Rehabilitation expenses, including medicine
  • Pain and suffering resulting from your injuries
  • Any costs for care and assistance you require or have required

The extent of your injury, from stress in the workplace to permanent impairment, will also influence the amount of compensation you could expect to receive. The more the injury impacts a person’s capacity to undertake their activities of daily living, then the greater economic losses are incurred and the higher the workers’ compensation payout.
