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.

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:
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:
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.
