One of the most common questions I'm asked by clients is, "How much is my pain and suffering worth under New Mexico law?"
The purpose of compensation for pain and suffering is to compensate you for what you have been thru because of the accident that caused your injuries.
The amount of the medical bills does not always dictate the amount of pain and suffering.
Arbitrators in Albuquerque have been typically awarding 3 times the medical bills in court mandated arbitrations in Bernalillo County. Juries are much more inpradictable.
It is more difficult for men to communicate pain and suffering to their doctor.
A personal diary of how the injuries have affected you is also helpful.
