What are the benefits of filing a personal injury lawsuit?

It is possible that you can receive compensation for the pain and suffering that you endure as a result of an injury caused by another party. While proving pain and suffering is not as easy as proving an actual physical injury, that does not mean that non-economic compensation is not available in a case. A personal injury attorney will work diligently to show how an injury causes the physical, emotional, and psychological pain and suffering of their client. Often, attorneys will add up all of an injury victim’s economic compensation (medical bills, lost wages, out-of-pocket expenses) and multiply that total by a set number (usually 1.5 to 5) to arrive at the total amount of compensation to request for pain and suffering.
