Boynton Beach Pain & Suffering / Emotional Distress Attorney
After an accident, your injuries can cause you pains and aches. You will require medical treatment to treat your injuries. However, most victims never expect emotional distress and other forms of pain and suffering that can follow after they have physically recovered.
Physical injuries and damages can be readily quantified, but non-economic damages such as pain and suffering can be difficult to calculate. At Jesse Davidson, PA., we can work with you to ensure that you receive proper compensation for your pain, suffering, and emotional distress from an accident. We have a strong track record of success in seeking damages for our clients. As your Boynton Beach Personal Injury Attorney, we understand the specialized laws in South Florida that pertain to this complex matter.
What is Physical Pain & Suffering?
Physical pain and suffering damages can compensate you for the pain caused by your injuries. This can include the pain caused to date and after the completion of the suit. Some of the examples of pain and suffering damages that can receive compensation include:
Pain from injury
Chronic and long-term pain or aches
Pain caused by medical treatment
Adverse impact on the quality of life
Pain that impacts your ability to perform regular tasks
What is Emotional Distress?
Once you have received the initial medical treatment, you may realize that your injuries have a long-term impact on your life. You may also have lost your vehicle. You will suddenly realize that your life has changed. You are no longer able to drive because it makes you feel anxious. You feel irritable and are unable to sleep. These can be signs of emotional distress and can have a crippling effect on your life. We can help you in seeking compensation for this form of damage that can have a long-term and serious impact on your life.
Determining the Damages
The compensation for your pain and suffering will depend on many factors relevant to your case. It is best to consult Boynton Beach Personal Injury Attorney to determine an accurate estimate of your settlement. Physical pain and suffering are easier to prove because they are usually visible. The same is not the case with emotional distress. We can gather valuable evidence and make a strong case for both pain and suffering and emotional distress.
We have over a decade of experience in working on these cases and in helping gather relevant evidence, including the following:
We can help you collect medical documentation that lists the types and level of injuries and your recovery. It is important for verifying how intense your injuries are and the need for ongoing long-term care and treatment.
Those suffering from emotional distress will need evaluation and treatment from a psychologist. This can also help you maintain a record of psychological problems that arose after the incident.
Doctors and psychiatrists can become expert witnesses that bring a lot of weight to your case. Their words can add validity to your claims of suffering and emotional distress in front of insurance companies and other parties.
We can also assist in collecting the testimony of friends, family, and colleagues.
We at Jesse Davidson, PA. are committed to advocating for our clients and ensure that the right course of action is taken.
