is best for the injury victim. This is rarely the case, and accepting
their settlements on their word has caused many people to suffer financially
as a result. Don’t let this happen to you. Call our firm today.
How Much Do Insurance Companies Payout for Pain and Suffering?
Insurance Companies take several factors into account when determining
the payout for pain and suffering. Factors that insurance companies use
are the severity of the injury, what the medical treatment that you received
was, recovery time length, and long term effects of the injury. Many small
payout settlements are below $15,000. Since most injury cases do not lead
to the victim having to go to the hospital to have emergency surgery,
the payouts are not into the hundreds of thousands. Insurance companies
never use pain and suffering calculators because it only takes a few factors
into account, they use their own calculation that takes into account over
70 factors to value your case.
No Fee Unless You Win
Injury cases can be challenging and time-consuming. At-fault parties may
stop at nothing to avoid having to pay what they (or their accountants)
view as an unreasonable settlement. At Whitehead Law, our priority is
to help you get an accurate representation of the damages you will have
to cover then hold the other party accountable for what they owe.
What to Do if you were Injured in an Accident?
It is crucial that you do not jeopardize a settlement by accepting fault
or signing a small settlement check.
If you were injured in an accident, make sure to:
- Take photos if possible
- Gather witness statements and police reports
- Get the medical attention you need from a doctor you trust
- Speak with a qualified Delaware personal injury lawyer right away
- Do not make an agreement with the insurance company
How Do I Prove My Pain and Suffering?
To prove your pain and suffering, you should show your medical bills and
records. Photos can also be evidence of your pain and suffering such as
a cut, wounds, and even videos of your surgery can be proof of your pain
and suffering. If your case reaches the lawsuit phase, the defense attorney
will look at your medical records. The defense attorney will also ask
if you’re exaggerating your pain.
