For those who have been seriously injured and are looking for a way to recover compensation for the harm that they’ve suffered, filing a personal injury case may be the best option. In a personal injury case, a claimant can seek damages for both the economic losses they have suffered, such as medical bills and lost wages, as well as any noneconomic damages they’ve incurred, such as the value of pain and suffering. But while economic damages are easy to value as compensation is based on actual losses suffered, pain and suffering damages can be more difficult to compute. If you’re filing a personal injury claim and seeking compensation for pain and suffering, here’s a look into how damages are calculated–
There are two traditional methods that may be used for calculating pain and suffering damages in a Virginia personal injury case: the per diem method and the multiplier method.
If you’re filing a personal injury claim and seeking compensation for pain and suffering, it is important that you have a lawyers on your side who is familiar with how such damages are calculated, and steps that you can take to improve the chances of recovering your full settlement amount. Unlike economic damages, noneconomic damages are very subjective; you want an attorney on your side who can provide evidence that you deserve a large pain and suffering award.
