If you or a loved one is seriously injured in a car accident, the insurance company will cover your medical bills and lost wages, but what about compensation for the pain and suffering you or a loved one endures as a result of the injury?
Damages for pain and suffering go beyond economic damages to include compensation for mental anguish, emotional distress, and physical pain that result from someone’s negligence.
In many cases, pain and suffering damages are payable, but certainly insurance companies will do what they can to lessen how much they pay out even if their client is obviously at fault. They are further limited by the amount of automobile coverage the driver purchased in their policy.
It is very important to work with an experienced personal injury attorney who can pursue the maximum compensation from the insurance company to include pain and suffering and other damages. Once the insurance is exhausted, your attorney can pursue a claim against the defendant or other parties, such as an employer, who are legally liable to pay the rest.
