Q: Can my attorney tell the jury I want $75,000 for my pain and suffering in my injury case?
A: No, in Pennsylvania your attorney is absolutely forbidden from asking for a specific amount of money for your pain and suffering. Your attorney cannot even tell the jury if the person who caused your injuries has insurance. These are some of the reasons going to trial is a risky proposition. My law office regularly handles accident cases and we only are paid money if we get you money.
