How do you calculate pain and suffering?

Answer

There is no standard accepted formula to calculate pain and suffering. Sometimes the amount of the medical bills is doubled or tripled, but other times that is too much or too little for the actual pain and suffering. Your best option when negotiating a pain and suffering settlement with an insurance adjuster may be to get the advice of an attorney, possibly one who will work pro bono or for a pre-agreed percentage of your settlement.
