How to Calculate Compensation for Pain and Suffering

Pain and suffering is defined as anguish or emotional distress that an injured party experiences after they are involved in an accident. Pain and suffering may refer to physical pain, depression, anxiety, memory loss, physical limitations, and many more.

Proving the expenses of medical bills and repair bills is not difficult to do after you are involved in an accident. It’s much harder, however, to prove the amount of pain and suffering from your accident. The Long Island personal injury attorneys at The Odierno Law Firm, P.C. can help you through this difficult process. To help you get started with calculating this complicated nuance of injury claims, we’ve listed a few methods that are common in calculating pain and suffering after an accident.

There are two basic methods that insurance companies use to calculate pain and suffering- the “per diem” method and the “multiple” method:

  • Multiple: The injured party's economic damages are added up and totaled, and then a multiple from one to five is applied.

  • Per Diem: The dollar value of an injured party's wages per day is assigned and then multiplied by the number of days that an individual was affected by an injury

Our personal injury attorneys in Long Island will aggressively represent you by standing up to insurance companies so that you don’t have to endure more stress. Call our injury firm in Long Island to discuss your case in detail!

Our advice is free, so you have nothing to lose by taking the first step.
