Enter the total days lost to injury and the average earnings per day ($) into the Injury Cost Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Injury Cost. ## Injury Cost Formula The following formula is used to calculate the Injury Cost. IC = DL * EPD • Where IC is the Injury Cost ($)
• DL is the total days lost to injury
• EPD is the average earnings per day ($) ## How to Calculate Injury Cost? The following example problems outline how to calculate Injury Cost. Example Problem #1: 1. First, determine the total days lost to injury. The total days lost to injury is given as 50. 2. Next, determine the average earnings per day ($). 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 ($) = 200 Entering these values and solving gives: IC = DL * EPD = 24,000 ($)
