Dallas Pain and Suffering Lawyers

Physical injuries are not all that accident victims suffer. The trauma of an accident can have dramatic effects on a victim’s life, causing long-term physical and emotional pain and suffering. Victims may experience lasting stress and anxiety after an accident, in addition to physical pain.

If you have been injured in an accident that was not your fault, you may be entitled to recover compensation for the damages you have suffered through a personal injury lawsuit. In this type of claim, injured parties may be entitled to sue for both economic damages, such as medical expenses and lost wages, and for noneconomic damages, such as pain and suffering.

While economic damages can be added up, noneconomic damages may not be so easy to put a number on. How do you put a price on the pain you have suffered or the emotional damage the trauma of the accident has caused you? Experienced injury attorneys know how to build a case for full and fair compensation of pain, suffering and other noneconomic damages.

At Kraft & Associates, Attorneys at Law, P.C., we help accident victims recover the maximum compensation they are entitled to receive for their pain and suffering and other losses.

Let us advise you about your rights after an accident that caused significant pain and suffering. We’re an established and professional law firm with friendly lawyers and staff who are easy to talk to. Please call us at (214) 999-9999 or contact us online.

Types of Noneconomic Damages in Texas Personal Injury Claims

If you have been seriously injured in an accident in Texas, such as a car crash caused by a negligent driver or a fall or other injury caused by a negligent property owner, you may be entitled to recover both economic and noneconomic damages.

As stated in the Texas statute, noneconomic damages are awarded to compensate the claimant for the following:

  • Physical pain and suffering.
  • Mental or emotional pain or anguish.
  • Loss of consortium (inability to have normal marital relations).
  • Disfigurement.
  • Physical impairment.
  • Loss of companionship and society.
  • Inconvenience.
  • Loss of enjoyment of life.
  • Injury to reputation.
  • All other nonpecuniary losses of any kind other than exemplary damages.

Calculating Pain & Suffering Damages in Texas Personal Injury Claims

No two accidents are alike, and the pain and suffering damages you may be entitled to recover will depend on the circumstances surrounding your particular injury. There is no set formula for calculating noneconomic damages in Texas.

The amount you are entitled to recover may depend on a combination of the following factors:

  • Number and type of physical injuries.
  • Extent and severity of the injuries.
  • Length of time required for healing.
  • Whether continued future treatment is necessary.
  • How long future treatment is expected to continue.
  • Whether surgery is required.
  • Permanent scarring and disfigurement.
  • Extent of disruption of the victim’s life caused by the injuries.
  • Health and age of the victim before the accident.

If your case is settled out of court, the value of your pain and suffering will be determined through negotiations between your attorney and the responsible party’s insurance company. If it is necessary for your case to go to trial, your attorney will present your case in court, and a judge or jury will determine the value of your noneconomic damages.

To persuade a jury that you should be compensated for pain and suffering, our knowledgeable injury attorneys may present evidence such as medical records, expert medical testimony, employment records demonstrating loss of wages, your own testimony and testimony from your friends and family.
