When Can You Sue for Pain and Suffering?

Stressed Man

Have you or someone you love recently been involved in an accident or an incident that caused injury? It can be quite stressful to deal with the aftermath of a serious personal injury. One of the questions that Dashner Law Firm often receives on a regular basis from our clients is “Can I sue for pain and suffering?” The answer, in a nutshell, involves many different aspects that will rely heavily on the exact details of your case.

Factors and Future Expectations

There are many different factors that play into whether you will be able to sue for pain and suffering damages. In general, the more extreme the nature of the injury, the more likely it is that your case will hold up favorably in court. You need to have proof that the conditions you sustained were a result of the personal injury, and that the defendant deliberately or negligently caused this injury. Your case will rely on critical information, such as:

• Statements from any witnesses or participants in the incident
• Police, EMS, and hospital reports
• Discussions with insurance companies
• Many, many other documents and details
