Pain and Suffering Settlements in Georgia
In addition to medical costs and vehicular damage, another common issue of those who have been inured in a car wreck is pain and suffering. Pain and suffering cannot be measured in conventional ways, therefore it is vital that you have an experienced attorney working with you on your personal injury case so that you can receive fair and just compensation.
How to Determine Pain and Suffering
Pain and suffering is not typically an outward experience, but can instead be personal and deeply felt. It is easy to measure lost wages and bodily injuries, but in order to receive adequate compensation for your pain and suffering, you will have to work with an attorney to establish several factors. These can include:
- Shock of impact
- Impairment of bodily health and vigor
- Past and future mental anguish
- Past and future pain and suffering
- Fear of the extent of injury
- Loss of the capacity to work and earn money
- Interference with enjoyment of life
- Interference with normal living
- Lifelong limit on activities
Compensation from a Car Insurance Company
Even though the court uses a fluid approach to determine the amount of compensation you will receive for pain and suffering, insurance companies rely on computer-generated numbers. Consulting with an experienced attorney will help ensure that you receive the compensation you deserve from the insurance company.
