I am sorry to hear that you were injured in a car accident and hope that you are able to make a full and fast recovery.
You are only entitled to pursue a claim for pain and suffering if your injuries were caused by another person’s negligence. I cannot answer your question unless you provide more details about the nature of the car crash and the causes of the collision.
Once you have this information, you may want to consult with a local personal injury attorney.

If someone else caused the accident due to negligence, you have a claim. If you were driving and it was your fault, then no.
It is difficult to answer this question given the limited amount of information. If another party or driver was at fault, you might be able to recover for your injuries. Depending on whether or not you were at fault for the collision and depending on what insurance coverage is available, you may be able to recover damages for your injuries. There are many variables in this process and it would likely be best that you speak with qualified counsel to determine the best approach.
Unless and until a formal written retainer agreement signed by DeWoskin Law Firm, LLC and a client is in place, no representation is made that DeWoskin Law Firm, LLC is providing legal advice. Each case requires an in-person review and signed agreement for the creation of an attorney-client relationship to commence.
The first thing to figure out is if you were driving or not. Also, if you were driving, were you the negligent driver.
If the other driver was at fault you can recover for your injuries, medical costs, and pain and suffering.
If you were not driving, you can recover for your injuries, medical costs, and pain and suffering. It will just be a question of if the at fault driver has insurance.
You may want to consult an attorney in order to get assistance on figuring out the answer to all these questions.
If someone else was negligent.
