The term “pain and suffering” refers to both the physical and mental distress suffered from an injury. Injuries may include actual broken bones and internal damage, but also temporary and permanent limitations on activity, potential shortening of life, and embarrassment from scarring.
Whether through negligence or intentional attack, if you have been harmed in any way, you are entitled to seek “general damages.” In awarding damages, juries often consider not only the actual cost of all related medical expenses, but also necessary compensation from lost wages. This includes any modifications you may have made to adjust to your changed circumstances.
In fact, some studies find that pain-and-suffering awards continue to constitute approximately 50 percent of total financial awards in some areas of personal injury cases.
If you are experiencing pain and suffering from negligence or an injury, you may want to speak to a lawyer about your options.
