According to the National Safety Council, in 2021, 62 million people suffered non-fatal injuries, with 1 of 5 seeking medical attention. Personal injury victims endure mounting medical bills, permanent disability, loss of livelihood, and disfigurement.
While the above consequences are apparent, the impact of emotional anguish and physical discomfort is discreetly substantial. Fortunately, you may be entitled to damages associated with pain and suffering in your personal injury claim.
Pain and suffering refer to discomfort, pain, anguish, and inconvenience, including emotional trauma linked with an injury.
If you’ve suffered an injury due to another party’s fault, consider speaking to a trusted personal injury lawyer about your entitled damages, including pain and suffering.
Damages for pain and suffering is a form of compensation entitled to victims because of the physical and emotional pain they would not endure if the injury did not occur.
Generally, there’s no exact, specific, or standard way of measuring pain and suffering; however, courts use the evidence presented in a personal injury case to determine a fair and just compensation for your pain and suffering.
Pain and suffering comprise bodily injury and mental anguish that victims endure in the present and future due to an injury.
Here are a few examples of pain and suffering that may apply to a personal injury case:
If your life has worsened because of an injury, you may be entitled to pain and suffering damages. While it is a right protected by personal injury law, the burden of proof lies with the victim.
