After getting hurt from a car accident, slip and fall or any other intentional or negligent act of another, the victim usually suffers from emotional distress in addition to physical pain. In California, these emotional obstacles are termed “Pain and Suffering”.
Get Compensated For Your Pain
Pain and suffering includes compensable damages for emotional pain or mental anguish that results from a personal injury. Pain and Suffering damages in California may include recovery for humiliation, indignity, grief, anxiety, worry, nervousness, mortification, shock, embarrassment, terror, or apprehension.
A great way to provide evidence your pain and suffering after the accident is to keep a daily log of your thoughts, feelings and experiences on a day-to-day basis, documenting how the injuries have interfered with your daily life and relationships.
Speaking to psychologists and therapists is also a great way to get help resolving some of these issues after your accident or car crash. They can help relieve some emotional distress while also creating a paper trail evidencing your psychological and emotional damages resulting from an accident or injury.
