One common question that we get is how do we calculate pain and suffering damages. Normally what we do is have a multiplier take medical bills, medical damages, economic damages, and we put these figures together & add them up. We might multiply it by two we may multiply it by three. That is just determined by the extent of the damages, whether they are really severe damages that are going to require ongoing medical treatment and potentially surgery. Or if they are just soft tissue damages that are not going to require as much attention.
Once we get that figure put together, we submit that along with our other damage calculations to the adjustor or to the court.
