411 PAIN After the Crash: Dealing with Pain and Suffering

411 PAIN After the Crash: Dealing with Pain and Suffering

Pain and suffering damages are the mental and emotional distress caused by an accident. Chronic pain, physical or mental limitations and depressions are the most common pain and suffering damages.  Victims are entitled to compensation under some circumstances. Insurance companies have various ways of calculating how much they will offer for pain and suffering. To successfully present your pain and suffering damages to the jury call 411 PAIN - car accident help.

Chronic pain often follows a crash. This type of pain is more likely to increase with age and it usually lasts three months or longer. People are more likely to suffer pain after a car crash than any other physically distressing event. About 84% of the people participating in a research in Scotland reported being in chronic pain due to a car crash.   Other physical traumatic events did not cause as much pain.

Victims of car accidents are usually entitled to full compensation for his or her injuries and damages suffered at the hands of a wrongdoer. Courts and juries consider different factors before granting an award for pain and suffering. Some of the factors include: the severity of the injury, the kind of medical treatment received, complications due to the injury, time of recovery, permanent injuries or results, how the injury affects the victim’s life, and the mental and emotional response to the injury.

Pain and suffering may include broken bones and internal ruptures. Also the aches such as pain, temporary and permanent limitations on activity, potential shortening of life, depression and embarrassment from scarring.
