What Is Pain And Suffering?
The negligence of another person or company can impact many aspects of your life, and the challenges you may face can go far beyond your medical bills. In Texas, you can pursue compensation for pain and suffering, a term that includes both the physical pain and the emotional distress that you may experience as results of your injuries.
How Are Damages For Pain And Suffering Calculated By Texas Courts?
While monetary damages, such as medical bills and lost wages, can be relatively straightforward to identify, it is more difficult to calculate the cost of pain and suffering. Texas courts may calculate pain and suffering in a variety of different ways.
Courts may use a multiplier method, multiplying the damages that a person receives for medical costs and lost income by a number based on the severity of their injuries. They may also consider the duration of the pain experienced and the injured person’s income when calculating the total in the per diem method. They might use other methods to reach a value for the pain and suffering that a person experiences as well.
Unfortunately, any of these approaches can be flawed. A skilled lawyer can help you assess the full impact that your injuries will have on your life and fight for full and fair compensation.
