What Is A Pain And Suffering Multiplier?
Proving Pain And Suffering With Evidence To Maximize Your Recovery
Now that you understand how to calculate the amount to ask for in your settlement, how do you actually prove pain and suffering? Well, proving it is best done through actual documentation of the injuries and treatment given. If you didn’t go to the doctor after the accident and are months later going to therapy all of a sudden before the lawsuit, it doesn’t look very good to the other party. However if you went to the doctor right away, had documented injuries either physical or mental and completed treatment for these injuries in a timely manner, then getting the compensation you ask for is much more likely to happen.
- Keep all medical records relating to injuries from the accident
- Keep all medical, treatment and therapy bills
- Take photos and videos of your injuries, limited mobility and any other helpful documentation of the severity of these injuries
- Receipts for medical devices, wheelchairs, slings, splits, prescriptions, medications and any other items purchased for healing
- Documentation of missed work, overdue bills from not being able to work and any other financial burdens resulting from the accident & your injuries
- Keep a journal of how you are feeling and recovering. Write in it every day that you experience pain, inconvenience, embarrassment, or other emotional responses to your injuries
- Get testimonials from family and friends discussing how the accident and injuries have affected your life from their perspective
