I was badly injured in a car accident in the San Fernando Valley. I know my medical and doctor bills should be covered by insurance, but what about my pain and suffering?
In California, an individual who was injured in an auto accident may recover for pain and suffering. There are two broad types of damages, or financial recovery, available: Economic and Non-Economic. Damages for pain and suffering fall into the non-economic category and can be the most controversial part of an auto accident case; in part because they are not easily defined or quantified without the guidance of an experienced auto accident lawyer.
