Some lawyers' offices or organizations, such as Maryland Workers' Compensation, offer online calculators to estimate workers' compensation claims, as noted by MDCompLaw.com. However, since each state has its own workers' compensation laws, the calculation process varies from state to state, according to the Law Dictionary.
Workers' compensation calculation formulas take into account the nature, location and severity of the injury sustained. While the process for filing a workers' compensation claim is similar across states, the formulas used vary by state, explains the Law Dictionary. Workers' compensation claims are typically simpler than personal injury claims, because no workers' compensation claim can include awards for pain and suffering. Claimants should wait until medical treatment is completed to help determine the degree of permanent injury and to ensure that all medical bills are included in the claim.
