What is Pain and Suffering?

“Pain and suffering” is a type of compensation in personal injury claims which address non-economic damages such as emotional distress or trauma, embarrassment, scarring, permanent disabilities or injuries, long-term effects of broken bones, etc.

These damages take a traumatic toll on a person’s mental and emotional well-being. A jury should consider the various types of evidence regarding pain and suffering, such as testimony from a close friend or relative, medical reports, mental health reports, etc.
