New York personal injury law uses comparative fault calculations when determining responsibility and compensation for an accident. This means that when courts look to award monetary compensation to an accident victim, they will look to see if the accident victim did something that contributed to the accident.

Pain and suffering is the term used to describe the physical or emotional stress caused by being injured in an accident. How much compensation you should get for pain and suffering is calculated separately from the amount you get for more direct expenses.
