How Are Pain and Suffering Claims Calculated? More Inside

Settlements

Physical injury isn’t the only thing one can recover compensation for when it comes to personal injury lawsuits; the psychological ramifications that surround these injuries can last even longer than the injuries themselves, and as such, must be compensated for so that the victim’s life can be made whole again. Pain and suffering, and mental anguish are two of the non-tangible injuries that one can recover damages for, and in this post, we’ll take a look at how they are determined, as well as a typical dollar value that one can expect. That said, someone else’s negligence qualifies you for compensation as long as you can show that were it not for their actions, you wouldn’t have suffered your injuries. In these types of case, stellar and experienced legal help is what you need, and we’re here for you, every step of the way.

Emotional Pain and Suffering – Is It Worse Than Physical Pain?

Physical pain is given precedence over emotional pain, because it is tangible as well as due to the fact that its origins can be sussed out e.g. a broken arm. However, emotional pain and suffering is just as important, as it can prevent you from enjoying or participating in life fully. Emotional pain can lead to PTSD which can then prevent you from being as social as you used to be, which can then lower your quality of life, especially if you were extraverted.

In mediation, during deposition or in a courtroom, the following can prove pain and suffering:

  1. A journal you kept detailing your emotional state
  2. Doctor’s slips for psychological therapy
  3. Statements, signed and dated from people that know you
