What is pain and suffering in terms of car accidents?

Pain and suffering is a legal term often used to describe the psychological toll many car accidents take on people injured in them. In terms of a car accident claim, you may be able to obtain financial compensation for pain and suffering. However, winning such cases can be challenging. Examples of pain and suffering include:

  • Mental anguish as a result of your car accident.
  • Psychological trauma due to your car accident.
  • Not being able to work due to your auto accident.
  • Depression brought on by the accident.

If you are suffering and in pain after your car accident, don’t give up hope. We want to help you demand the compensation you deserve and help you move forward with your life.

How is pain and suffering determined in a car accident?

The insurance company for the at-fault driver often uses many different criteria when determining pain and suffering for a car accident. In general, you may have an easier time with your pain and suffering claim if you have medical documentation to back up your claim. This can include:

  • Medical bills
  • Medical records
  • Medication prescriptions
  • Therapist bills

Insurance companies then often take such items – along with proof of loss of income due to not being able to work due to pain and suffering – and come up with an amount for what your claim may be worth.

Our legal team may come up with a different number. And if we do, we will do everything we can to demand the compensation you deserve. And if the insurance company refuses to cooperate, we will not hesitate to file a car accident lawsuit on your behalf.

What are common pains after a car accident?

What is delayed pain?

Delayed pain is term used to describe pain that occurs several days – or sometimes even several weeks – after your car accident. Sometimes, delayed pain can be physical, including whiplash, a common neck injury that often arises several days after a car accident.
