I am sorry to hear this;
the amount of pain and suffering requested depends on the severity of the injuries, and how long the pain will last.
The courts often use a scale of 1 to 5, so that if the injury is extreme and long lasting, they will multiply actual damages (medical costs) times 5; if minor, then 1.5
If the defendant acted with gross negligence, (ie speeding and driving erratically, driving under the influence) the court can impose punitive or exemplary damages, designed to punish the defendant; this monetary sum is in addition to any other damages.
