Michigan Pain & Suffering Settlements

Our Michigan personal injury lawyers get our clients settlements and compensation for their pain and suffering from an accident, dog bite, or other injury claim. Pain and suffering claims are just one type of compensation that an injured person can get from an injury claim or lawsuit. These damages are often significant and are based upon the severity of the injury, the type of medical treatment, and the permanency of the injury.

What are Michigan Pain & Suffering Damages?

Pain and suffering damages are referred to as "non-economic damages" under the law. This is because there is no specific value to these claims that can be calculated, like a claim for medical expenses or lost wages. Pain and suffering generally includes:

  1. Physical pain and suffering
  2. Mental anguish
  3. Fright and shock
  4. Denial of social pleasure and enjoyments
  5. Embarrassment, humiliation or mortification

Non-economic damages can also include scarring from either a laceration caused during the accident or from a surgical scar. Psychological damages, including post-traumatic stress syndrome, also fall in this category of damages.

How is the Amount of Pain & Suffering Settlements Determined?

There is no such thing as a pain and suffering calculator because every case is different. Every person has a unique injury and how an injury affects a person's life is different for each individual. Therefore, the settlement amount for pain and suffering is different in every case and our experienced attorneys can determine the fair settlement amount for you.

As proof of these claims, our attorneys rely on your medical records, testimony, and other factors. Many times, we request that you be evaluated by a psychologist or psychiatrist who understands how to find out exactly how an injury has impacted your life both physically and emotionally. Quite often, close relations are damaged after a serious accident.

Michigan Pain & Suffering Accident Lawyer Review

James Hennen
james hennen"I was hit by a private charter bus while riding my motorcycle in Detroit.  I hired Bob Lantzy and the law firm of Buckfire & Buckfire after not being happy with my former attorneys.  I found Bob Lantzy to be easy to speak with and work with throughout my case.  He answered all of my calls or returned them without delay.  He always kept me informed.  He resolved a first party no-fault benefit case and third party pain and suffering case for me.  I was very pleased with both settlements.  Bob was honest and forthright.  I would highly recommend Bob Lantzy and Buckfire and Buckfire to anyone who needs a lawyer."
