What Is Pain & Suffering in an Auto Accident Case? January 8, 2018

What Is Pain & Suffering in an Auto Accident Case?, Andalusia, Alabama

If you are involved in an auto accident and you are able to prove that the other driver caused the accident, you may seek damages for any pain and suffering or mental anguish you experienced resulting from the accident. There is no specific law that says how much money a jury should award a victim seeking such damages. You and your lawyer will attempt to calculate a monetary value based on the degree of pain and suffering and mental anguish you’ve suffered. That value will be based on a number of factors, including, the nature and severity and length of time you had to endure pain and suffering and mental anguish. If your injuries are so severe that it is reasonably certain that you will experience pain and suffering and/or mental anguish in the future, you may claim future pain and suffering and mental anguish damages.

In proving pain and suffering and mental anguish damages in an auto accident claim, you must prove that they resulted from the defendant’s negligence and caused said damages.
