How to Determine Pain and Suffering in a Car Accident Case

After sustaining injuries from a car accident, the first thing you should focus on is your recovery. Visit the doctor’s office and start receiving proper treatment. Once you are feeling better, you can contact a Los Angeles Car Accident Lawyer and see what it takes to receive the compensation for your injuries.

However, keep in mind that it won’t be easy. First, you have to prove that the other party’s negligence caused the accident, and remove any suspicion that you are in any way responsible for causing the crash. This is why you need an attorney as collecting and presenting evidence may be over your head.

Before you are ready to file a claim, you need to understand the things that affect your case’s full worth. Here is how you can determine how much money you can receive for pain and suffering, in addition to the damages done to your vehicle and property.

Pain And Suffering

Before we begin, it is crucial that you fully understand what this term defines. “Pain and Suffering” is used as a legal term and refers to a number of injuries that a plaintiff has suffered from a car accident. It includes both physical and emotional pain, such as :

• Fear

• Inconvenience

• Loss o f enjoyment of life

• Paranoia

• Grief

• Worry

• Stress

• Exhaustion

Depending on the type of injuries sustained, the plaintiff (in this case, you) may be able to file a claim and recover compensation, small or very large.

In order to understand how the value of pain and suffering is calculated, you have to speak with a Personal Injury Attorney in Los Angeles and seek professional help. Personal Injury Attorney will help connect you with a professional who will help evaluate your case and let you know what you can expect to receive.

Note – be ready to negotiate, as the insurance company won’t accept the offer you throw on the table, without trying to “adjust” it so that it benefits them. However, if they offer you a settlement which is nowhere close to the full value of your case, feel free to take your case to trial. 

How Is It Calculated?

The process of calculation is very complicated and usually differs from one insurance company to another. However, they all have one thing in common, and these are called multipliers. Basically, the insurance company will multiply your medical bills and injuries sustained by a certain number (usually between 2 and 5). If you broke an arm and your total medical bills are $3,000, you may receive up to $9,000. However, if you only have scratches and bruises, your multiplier won’t be higher than 2, making your compensation $6,000 at maximum. Again, it is all based on the injuries you sustained and the aftermath of the accident.

If you are unhappy with the evaluation and the initial offer from the insurance company, feel free to contact our Los Angeles Car Accident Lawyers and schedule your initial free consultation today.
