    As a rule of thumb pain and suffering is 2X the medical bills. Punitive damages are unlimited and decided by the jury.

    None, less 1/3 for the lawyer.,

  3. Barry C says:

    You deserve top be paid your damages, which are the medical costs, plus your legal costs.

    Anything else, if any, is purely circumstantial. My guess in your case, if you can’t enumerate your additional damages, then there are none.

    In re: Brandon’s answer
    The Supreme Court has held that any punitive damages that are in excess of 9 times the compensatory damages are highly suspect. While there may be a case where such punitive damages are awarded, the Court said that they would probably be a constitutional violation and would therefore be reduced by the (lower) court.
