PAIN AND SUFFERING

PAIN AND SUFFERING:

This is the legal term used for physical and mental distress resulting from an injury. It includes injuries such as broken bones, torn ligaments, sprained or strained muscles, bulging, herniated or ruptured discs, internal ruptures of organs, aches and pain resulting from a whiplash, the temporary and permanent limitations on one’s life activities, potential shortening of life, scarring and embarrassment from scarring, and depression resulting from injuries. All of these make up “general damages” and are recoverable by a person injured through someone else’s negligence or intentional actions. Jury awards for pain and suffering are subjective and can vary greatly from locality to locality.
