Posted almost 2 years ago. Applies to New York, 1 helpful vote


How do you explain to someone that you are in pain? How do you convey to them all the problems that you have with your daily activities? How can you get someone to feel the suffering you have gone through?

These are vital questions for an attorney who represents you in an accident, medical malpractice case, negligence case, or wrongful death case.

Not only is it important to understand your pain but it is vital to understand what you went through. This way you can convey those feelings to the defense attorneys and the insurance companies.

How else can you get someone to understand all the misery you endured? If your attorney cannot visualize the agony you are in everyday it becomes difficult to relay those images to someone else.
