When someone is injured as a result of another’s negligence, the culpable party is required to pay compensation to the injured one in order to ensure that they do not suffer any financial losses as a result of the accident.

 

Unfortunately, the losses endured as the result of an accident can go beyond the cost of medical bills or lost wages. One also experiences discomfort and pain after an injury. Texas law has provisions to cover these less easily quantifiable losses in the form of compensation for pain and suffering. 

 

The experienced attorneys at Sneed|Mitchell LLP helps those suffering take legal action. Seek the compensation you deserve for your pain and suffering. To learn more about how we can help with your case, give us a call or contact us online today to schedule a free consultation.

Types of Pain & Suffering After An Accident

The compensation awarded for pain following a preventable injury should cover not only the pain that one has already endured, but also any lingering pain that will be experienced in the future. If an injury has caused you to suffer permanent harm, you should be appropriately compensated. 

 

For example, you may experience ongoing pain as a result of:

 

In these and many other situations, your pain may persist for months, years, or a lifetime following an accident. You deserve a sufficient amount of money to fairly and fully compensate you for any ongoing suffering you will experience. 

How Much Money Can Someone Receive For Pain & Suffering

Juries often try to calculate your pain and suffering award using many different methods,  but our lawyers are also upfront and tell the jurors what we believe you're entitled to. Ultimately, no amount of money can make up for the impact pain has on one’s quality of life. For the purposes of legal compensation, however, there are a number of different techniques that can be used to estimate a fair amount of monetary damages. 

 

One option is to use a pain multiplier. Typically, this is done by totaling up the value of your medical bills and lost wages, then multiplying the sum by a factor of 1.5 to 5 depending on the severity of the pain and suffering experienced. Another option is to determine how many days you have endured or will endure pain, and then to place a dollar value on each day of pain cumulatively experienced. 

 

Regardless of what method you choose to determine your target settlement, the more evidence presented regarding the impact your pain has had on your life, the better your chances of winning a larger settlement. Taking photographs that make clear the extent of your injuries can help maximize compensation for pain and suffering. In addition, keeping a pain journal or a video diary can also be an effective means of documenting the affect your injury has had on your life.
