Remember no one knows how your crash has affected your life, only you can put into words and more importantly open the eyes of jurors who do not know and may be looking at you after you have healed. They are asking themselves, why should I award any pain and suffering money to this person, are they looking for a handout?
The obvious answer is no, you are not looking for a handout you are seeking to be reimbursed for your personal damages. Often times what means to the most to us is our time with our families and especially our children. If you have been injured, you may not be able to pick up your little girl or boy, and that is something that your little girl or boy may not understand, that is an element of pain and suffering or personal damages that a jury needs to know and understand so they have visual examples of how you have been affected by your collision.
It seems simple to keep a daily log or journal yet 75% of injured people never do and then wonder why the value of their case is less than they expected. In our courts it is what you can prove and using a daily journal is something whereby you have written down real life limitations you have had as a result of being injured either in an auto collision or a fall.
