When it comes to personal injury cases, the term “pain and suffering” is used to describe compensation to the injured person for the physical and emotional distress caused by their injury. Pain and suffering is separate from compensation for economic losses such as medical bills or lost wages.
The calculation of damages in a personal injury case depends on the losses suffered by the injured party. Damages usually include medical expenses to treat injuries or the cost to replace or fix the damaged property. However, damages can include more than just money directly used to address injuries.
A victim can obtain monies for pain and suffering as a result of the accident for discomfort and physical pain. In some instances a victim can collect for emotional distress, anxiety and stress linked to the accident and your injuries.
