Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
You have raised a very difficult question. Pain and suffering is not defined with a formula or percentage. That said, some courts first determine your medical bills and lost income, and then award pain and suffering at a multiple of 2-3 times of that amount. I would have an expert project lost income and medical expenses first to determine the amount being asked, and always seek much more than you are comfortable settling for.
Please rate me excellent.
and if you have a follow up, you can ask me too.
