Best Rhode Island Personal Injury Lawyer Tips: What Is Pain And Suffering Money?

May 27th, 2020

If you have been injured in a car accident, slip and fall, or other incident, did you know that you could recover for your pain and suffering? What is pain and suffering anyway?  The insurance companies will not tell you about the categories of compensation you’re entitled to, which is why you need the best RI and MA personal injury lawyers on your side, fighting for you!

At the Bottaro Law Firm, we have helped thousands of people just like you recover compensation. Today, I am going to recover one type of money damages in figuring out how much is your case worth.

What Is “Pain & Suffering” In A Personal Injury Claim?

“Pain and suffering” is a legal term used by lawyers, judges, and jurors to describe both the physical and mental suffering that you may experience after an injury.

Physical pain means exactly what you may think – your actual pain and physical injuries.  Mental pain and suffering refers to how the car accident or incident affects you emotionally. For example, the Rhode Island jury instructions states that mental suffering includes: nervousness, anxiety, worry, shock, humiliation, embarrassment or indignity. 

How is Pain & Suffering Calculated?

Rhode Island and Massachusetts law allows you to recover money for pain and suffering, provided you meet all other elements for proving your case. At The Bottaro Law Firm, we handle these types of personal injury cases everyday and have successfully recovered millions of dollars for our clients at no upfront cost to you.

You need our help because not only will the insurance companies not tell you or help you about pain and suffering, but because it is not easily proven.  Without a law firm, the insurance companies will not give you the money you deserve.  The manner of calculation depends on your specific case, where the incident occurred, and several other factors.

Unfortunately, there is no book or clear black and white answer to how much is my pain and suffering worth?

Instead, the best personal injury lawyers know that getting to know you and your case is super important to getting you the best outcome.  At our law firm, we place your interests first, meaning that we have a dedicated team of lawyers and legal assistants to track your car accident, personal injury or other problem for you.  We work to investigate and maximize your pain and suffering damages by getting to understand your family, job, medical records, and how in short this experience has affected you.

At the end of your medical treatment, we review the evidence on your case to calculate a monetary figure based on the above factors and additional factors.  Your case is unique, and as we walk with you through the injuries, we can help answer this question in a more specific manner.
