Wrongful Death

The untimely loss of a loved one is a traumatic experience, no matter what the circumstances, but preventable accidents are often particularly heart wrenching. Any financial burden left behind as a result of the passing is simply salt in the wound; having to deal with concrete financial losses while struggling to cope with the devastation of the emotional toll is something no one should face alone. Filing a wrongful death action against the responsible party with the help of Sandra Radna can ease your monetary headaches and let you focus on what is really important. Our team has the experience and determination necessary to help you get the financial compensation you and your family deserve.

Defining Pain and Suffering

There are two types of pain and suffering – physical and emotional. We will review both types of pain and suffering in this blog and how they are calculated.

Emotional pain and suffering: The experience of a traumatic incident and the aftermath of coping with the resulting injuries can take a massive toll on the survivor. Emotional pain and suffering in this context includes shock, fear, emotional distress, anxiety, loss of enjoyment of life, humiliation, and anger. In severe cases, a victim might also suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), severe mood swings, lack of energy, and sexual dysfunction. The impact of emotional pain and suffering on a person’s life can be profound and that is why it is considered when compensating a victim of a negligent act.

Physical pain and suffering: The physical pain and suffering from an injury can be excruciating. The compensation you receive will include both the pain you suffered to date as well as any of the future pain and suffering that is you likely as a result of the incident.

Calculating Pain and Suffering

In most cases, the amount of a settlement or verdict after trial is based on what a jury has previously awarded in similar cases.

Other factors might also include:

• The credibility of the plaintiff

• The consistency of the plaintiff’s testimony

• If the physician supports the plaintiff’s claims

• If the plaintiff’s injuries, diagnosis, and claims are consistent with the plaintiff’s claims of pain and suffering

To maximize compensation for your injuries, hire an experienced personal injury attorney to represent you to advocate passionately and effectively for you.
