Pain and Suffering After a “Minor” Car Accident?
First, what exactly is a pain and suffering claim? According to dmv.org, it is considered to be the stress you experience from your injuries. If you are injured in a car accident, you will most likely be advanced to file a personal injury claim. The claim generally includes the medical expenses resulting from the accident. And because of these injuries, you may also be eligible for reimbursement for the pain and suffering. It generally includes:
- Physical pain
- Emotional trauma
- Psychological trauma

As vague as this might seem, you are allowed by law to file an insurance claim for pain and suffering. This is completely separate from the lost wages or medical expenses you might claim. This is why it is important to seek medical treatment for your injuries after an accident – your car insurance company will more than likely not accept your claim if you. It is also important to keep an accurate record of any care you receive, from medical reports, prescription receipts, photos of injuries, and medical bills (including therapy, ambulance bills, x-rays, and more).
If you believe that you will not be able to get the compensation you think you deserve working solely with your insurance agent, it might be time to consider hiring a personal injury lawyer.
