Calculating Pain and Suffering After an Auto Accident in Florida - Miami Traffic Accident Attorney

Traffic accidents often lead to injuries. Injuries almost always lead to pain. Pain is pretty much the definition – or at least one definition – of suffering. Would it make sense that you could recover damages for the medical bills for your traffic-accident injury, but not for the pain and suffering that accompany that injury? It is difficult to put a monetary value on pain and suffering, but that doesn’t mean you can’t recover damages for it. In fact, Florida law explicitly endorses the recovery of damages for pain and suffering as a result of injuries incurred in an accident...

The result can be delayed deliveries and higher costs. But...
