How to Calculate Injury Cost?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Injury Cost.

Example Problem #1:

  1. First, determine the total days lost to injury. The total days lost to injury is given as 50.
  2. Next, determine the average earnings per day ($). The average earnings per day ($) is provided as 100.
  3. Finally, calculate the Injury Cost using the equation above: 

IC = DL * EPD

The values given above are inserted into the equation below:

IC = 50 * 100 = 5000 ($)


Example Problem #2: 

The variables needed for this problem are provided below:

total days lost to injury = 60

average earnings per day ($) = 200

Entering these values and solving gives:

IC = DL * EPD = 24,000 ($)
