  • How Is Pain and Suffering Calculated in Lawsuits?

When you’re hurt in a serious accident, it’s not just the injuries you have to worry about. It’s also the pain and suffering, the emotional distress, and the other non-economic issues affecting your life. Unfortunately, you may not have the tools to calculate those losses, but you deserve to be compensated for them.

If you’ve been hurt in a South Carolina accident, you likely need a lawyer from HawkLaw, PA to help you calculate your personal injury claim. They have the tools you need to find your claim’s value. Read on to learn more. 

Your Intangible Suffering

Determining your claim’s value depends on your non-economic damages, which can be tough to calculate. These intangible losses can be intense and impact your life, but they don’t have the same dollar value as your medical bills or lost wages, for example.

Because of this, you’ll need special tools to calculate your claim’s value. Your South Carolina personal injury lawyer can help you determine the value of your intangible suffering with these resources. Your lawyer can focus on your compensation while you focus on recovery. 

Determining Pain and Suffering Based on Your Experience

When you’re hurt in a serious accident, calculating your pain and suffering often depends on what happened and how you felt. 

These calculations are typically based on the severity and impact of the injuries on your life. For example, if you suffered an injury that caused hearing loss, you may receive more compensation if it left you completely deaf, rather than hard of hearing.

The impact is relative as well. Although anyone can be impacted by hearing loss, you may be more severely affected if you’re a musician. Your personal injury lawyer can review the suffering you’ve experienced and help you calculate the compensation you’re owed.
