The settlement for stomach pain after a car accident is based on a number of factors – whether your pain stems from a minor or severe injury and whether it is short- or long-term. The amount of your settlement will also depend on other circumstances of your accident and the financial expenses and losses related to your injury.
Related expenses can include current and future pain and suffering and income you lose when your stomach pain and underlying injury prevent you from returning to work. Our personal injury lawyers help you quantify your damages and create a compelling settlement request when we represent you.
What Factors Determine the Cost of My Personal Injuries?
If you or someone you love was injured in a car accident, you might experience stomach pain that ranges from minor to acute to chronic. A car accident can leave you with multiple injuries that can be hard to distinguish at first. That makes getting a definitive diagnosis an essential part of your health care and your compensation case. According to Mayo Clinic research, your post-accident stomach pain could mean:
- Heart attack
- Ruptured spleen
- Intestinal obstruction
When we represent you, we obtain your medical records on your behalf. They will tell us why you are in pain, the types of treatment you will require, and how long your treatment plan is expected to last. All these factors play a part in determining the cost of your injuries.
Track the Cost of Treating the Pain in Your Stomach
The health care professionals who diagnose the underlying cause of your stomach pain will also develop a treatment plan to foster optimal recovery. When we represent you, we review your medical records to determine the cost of current and future medical care your injury will require. In addition, we help you seek these recoverable damages:
- Wage and income loss
- Pain and suffering
- Mental and emotional angst
- Physical impairment
Because we assign a value to your case based on your unique circumstances, we also obtain copies of your proof of income, mental health care records, if applicable, and any other documentation that proves the value of your case.

How Can a Personal Injury Lawyer Help Me with My Case?
Our team understands your need to make your physical recovery a priority. When we represent you, you do so without the risk of an expired filing deadline. We will start working on your case right away and file your lawsuit for you. We will also:
- Assign a fair value to your case
- Prove the at-fault driver’s negligence
- Build a strong, supporting case file
- Update you with changes in your case
- Respond to your questions and calls

Your Right to Compensation has an Important Time Limit in Louisiana
La. Civ. Code Art. 3492 – the personal injury statute of limitations – generally only lets you file a lawsuit within a year of the accident. We recommend getting our team involved in your case as soon as possible. Doing so means we:
- Compliance with the statute of limitations
- A thorough investigation of your accident
- Building a strong case for compensation
- Interviewing witnesses while memories are fresh
No matter what caused your injury and ongoing pain, you have a predetermined amount of time to file a lawsuit against the at-fault driver. Getting us involved early also means we can canvass the accident scene and immediate surrounding area.
