How is pain and suffering calculated?

If you are experiencing pain and psychological suffering after an accident, you may be entitled to pain and suffering compensation. Here's everything you need to know, including how pain and suffering valuations are calculated.

What is pain and suffering compensation?

Pain and suffering compensation is a form of financial payment awarded to individuals for the physical and emotional trauma they have endured after an accident.

This type of compensation is awarded to an injured person for an accident’s less tangible, non-monetary losses, like ongoing physical pain and psychological harm. 

The overall aim of pain and suffering compensation is to restore the impacted individual’s position, with deep consideration for how the accident has altered their predicted life trajectory.

How much can I claim?

If you are experiencing pain and suffering after an accident that wasn’t your fault, it’s vital to speak with a personal injury lawyer as quickly as possible. These specialists have the experience and expertise necessary to calculate the value of your claim.

To do this, they will review the nature and extent of your injuries, the duration of your pain and suffering, your age, and any pre-existing conditions or disabilities.

Once a figure is calculated, and you are happy to proceed, your lawyer will work on your behalf to build a case, taking on the burden of gathering evidence, medical records and expert evidence while you focus on rebuilding your life.

If you are worried about medical bills, firms like ours support you with access to the right specialist medical experts to ensure recovery of any bills.
