When you hire a personal injury attorney, you can expect them to calculate a settlement that is proportional to the incident you went through, but how do they do it?

Aside from seeking compensation for any medical expense incurred after an injury, personal injury lawyers have to calculate the pain and suffering of their clients. However, that can be tricky because it’s hard to define what that means.
Sometimes, it’s also referred to as general damage. For example, if the injury led to a complete life change, then the pain and suffering are greater, so the settlement should be greater.
