Proving Pain and Suffering After a Truck Crash

It will be necessary to provide proof to support claims of pain and suffering damages after a truck crash. This can be challenging, as many of these factors are intangible and cannot be added up and presented concretely. Victims and their families can, however, offer some evidence of the stress they endure, using:
Pertinent medical documents
Photographs of injuries
Personal journals documenting the period of time after the crash
Testimony of friends and family
Testimony of care providers

Obtaining Compensation for Your Pain and Suffering

The personal, indefinable pain and suffering experienced by truck accident victims can be considerable, and victims deserve compensation to address this stress. However, insurance companies are often reluctant to pay these damages. They may try to reduce the amount of compensation or deny it altogether. That’s when an experienced truck accident attorney can help. An effective injury lawyer understands what a difficult time truck accident victims face, and an attorney has likely been through this process with other clients before. He can help victims understand their rights and prepare a comprehensive claim to address his client’s needs—both now and in the future.
