Can I Sue for Pain and Suffering after a Car Accident in Wisconsin?
The Short Answer is: Yes,
But for less serious injuries, it may not be worth it.
Unlike tangible expenses like medical bills, pain and suffering is harder to prove and equate with a dollar amount. Pain and suffering refers to stress caused by the accident or injuries. Many sources of pain and suffering such as whiplash, last for years and are difficult for others to see. Insurance companies calculate pain and suffering based on the severity of your injuries—generally by multiplying the cost of your medical expenses by one to five depending on how severe and permanent the injury is.
For some minor injuries, the potential amount awarded for pain and suffering may not be worth the time and effort it took to receive it. However, if your injuries and expenses are having a significant effect on your life, making a claim for pain and suffering could be the best way to go.
