Details Can Convince Skeptical Jurors
Better Rancho Santa Margarita auto accident lawyers will often advise their clients that if they hope to get a fair and adequate pain and suffering damage award, they'll need to convince often skeptical jurors of the severity of their non-economic damages.
Details are a key factor. But keep in mind that if your case goes to trial, it may be six or seven months before your claim is presented to a jury. Which is why it's so important to keep a detailed record of how your injuries have affected your everyday activities. The fact is, you may not recall just how painful some basic tasks were for you. Things like preparing meals, putting away the dishes or bathing. Some other things you may want to jot down are the visits to relatives you passed on, difficulty attending Sunday worship, driving your children to school, missing their games and other events.
Keep a Log
Keeping a log of your pain and suffering will help remind you of how many sacrifices you had to make (and often continue to make) as a result of your injuries. Your log should include any discomfort, anxiety, difficulty in sleeping or in staying awake, and other problems caused by your car accident. You should record the emotional effects of missed activities, vacations, weddings, holiday activities and family events. The point is, pain and suffering are sometimes difficult to prove, which is why detailed records are so vital in negotiating a fair and reasonable settlement amount.
