Pain and suffering is compensation for the physical pain and mental anguish you experience after being injured by another’s negligence. However, this type of compensation can only be obtained through a personal injury lawsuit and is often difficult to determine an exact amount a victim may be owed.
For this reason, you will need a skilled personal injury attorney in Phoenix to investigate your case and determine if you are entitled to compensation for your pain and suffering.
At the Phillips Law Group, we are dedicated to helping accident victims recover maximum compensation for their personal injury case. We will thoroughly research the accident and your injury to find out if you may be entitled to compensation for your pain and suffering.
There are two types of pain and suffering you may experience after an accident: emotional and physical pain and suffering.
