Pain and suffering after a car accident

Pain and suffering is a legal term often used to describe the overall impact of an injury on an injury victim. The phrase is also often used to refer to financial compensation for the psychological and emotional toll of an accident.

In the case of a car accident, financial compensation for pain and suffering could be available if you or a loved one can no longer do normal or enjoyable activities, including walking, playing a certain sport or be intimate with a loved one. (Loss of intimacy is also known as loss of consortium.)

Your pain and suffering is real. It can negatively impact your life. You deserve financial compensation for your hardship. Don’t underestimate the seriousness of your injuries and your medical condition. Talk to a lawyer and learn more about all the legal options available to you.
