If you have recently been hurt and are filing a claim for
personal injury, you may be wondering about all of the compensation to which you may be
entitled to receive. You have the right to collect compensation for pain
and suffering, which encompasses not only the physical harm that has been
done but emotional and mental as well.
Pain and suffering can be hard to quantify. The pain after a car accident
does not translate clearly to dollar signs, and so coming up with the
exact monetary worth is what makes this one of the most challenging aspects
of personal injury claims. You know that you have suffered a neck injury,
or a fracture, however, injuries can vary in their severity and degree,
and every person experiences pain differently.
How to Find the Value of Pain and Suffering Damages
Remember that there are a few main components of pain and suffering, but
mainly it will comprise the physical pain you have suffered and also the
emotional. When you present your claim to the insurance company for review,
you will need to provide several supplemental materials to demonstrate
what is causing pain and suffering for you.
These might include the following:
- Medical history
- Types of treatment received
- Receipts of the medication purchased
- Notes from your employer that you were unable to work
- Any other evidence of pain that may be related to the incident
While you are receiving treatment, it is important you remain honest and
upfront at all times, especially with the doctors. Discuss with them the
severity of the pain and whatever discomfort you might be feeling. They
can prepare the right treatment plan for you, and all of the documentation
will be used appropriately when you bring your injury claim to the insurance
