Who will pay for my pain and suffering?

If you have been involved in a car accident in Texas, you likely have many questions, including who will pay for the damage to your vehicle and any court fees incurred. Another concern is likely whether or not your insurance company will compensate you for any pain and suffering you experienced as a result of the crash.


According to Zacks.com, most insurance companies should be liable for at least some of the payment, but it is important to understand what will be considered pain and suffering. Insurance companies may offer compensation for any mental or physical pain you incurred and can also provide payment for any pain your doctors expect you will experience in the future.


Your insurance adjuster will likely use a formula to determine the amount that you should be paid depending on the amount of damage your vehicle sustained and the injuries you have claimed. Other factors that will be considered will be whether or not you have ever submitted similar claims and how quickly you reported the accident and sought treatment. The reason that many people choose to go to trial is because they are unsatisfied with the amount the insurance believes they need for pain and suffering.


Generally, insurance companies have a limit on how much they will pay for one claim. There can be limits for a single person as well as a maximum pay amount for each claim, no matter how many people were involved.
