How much money can a Michigan car accident victim get in a settlement for pain and suffering damages?

The settlement amount for pain and suffering damages after Michigan car accident will depend on how substantial the “injury” is and is on a case by case basis. Pain and suffering damages are also known as non-economic damages and generally include compensation for physical pain and suffering, mental anguish, fright and shock, denial of social pleasure and enjoyments, and embarrassment, humiliation, or mortification. Proving these claims to the insurance company or a jury takes significant expertise by a personal injury attorney. There are certain methods of presenting these “invisible” injuries to the insurance company or jury to allow them to essentially feel the pain of the accident victim and to best understand how these injuries have impacted the life of both the victim and the surrounding family.
