When you're in a car accident and you sue for pain and suffering you'll need to prove that you endured or are enduring physical pain and emotional suffering caused by the car accident.
Pain and Suffering in a car accident is physical pain and emotional distress a victim endures as a result of a personal injury that happens during a car accident.
The Pain and Suffering can also be caused by other accidents or injuries on a job that you can sue for and win pain and suffering from.
But you must be able to prove that you had physical pain and the emotional distress to win a lawsuit in pain and suffering.
If you did have physical pain and emotional distress and lost time to work and make an income then you'll be more likely to win the pain and suffering lawsuit.
I would recommend hiring a good lawyer or attorney that works in car accident lawsuits that can help you win the lawsuit.
