Pain & Suffering in Pennsylvania Personal Injury Cases

Trust a Harrisburg Personal Injury Attorney to Fight for Compensation!

When someone suffers injury due to the negligence of another person, the insurance company of the at-fault party is not only responsible for paying medical bills, wage loss and other out-of-pocket costs associated with the incident, but also for providing pain and suffering compensation to the injured individual.

Motor vehicle collisions and other types of accidents can cause damage well beyond what's visible to the eye or treatable by a doctor. In addition to the outward physical impairments or injuries an accident may cause, pain and suffering encompasses any and all negative changes that have affected your life as a direct result of the accident. Keep in mind, every case is different, and there are exceptions and limitations to a person's right to receive pain and suffering.

You should consult with a Harrisburg personal injury attorney from Metzger Wickersham to discuss the facts of your case. Our firm has provided legal help to clients throughout Pennsylvania for more than a century. Today we are one of Pennsylvania's most established law firms. Call (888) 286-2850!

Measuring Compensation for Pain and Suffering

How do you figure out how much your pain and suffering is worth? It's not a simple task. Because every person's case is fact-specific and each person's tolerance for pain is different, there is no exact formula for determining the value of someone's pain and suffering. You can, however, receive an accurate valuation of your pain and suffering by contacting a lawyer who's experienced in personal injury cases. There are many variables that affect pain and suffering value in a personal injury case.

Some of these factors include:

  • Extent of the pain suffered
  • Duration of the recovery period
  • Types and lengths of medical treatment necessary
  • Permanency of the injury, such as whether or not you have scarring or disfigurement
  • Extent of change to the victim's overall quality of life
  • Extent of mental anguish and emotional trauma, such as humiliation and decrease in enjoyment of life.

A skilled attorney can evaluate your case and make an informed decision on the fair value for your pain and suffering, based on knowledge of the law and familiarity with injury claims.
