What Constitutes Pain and Suffering?

Any time you are injured due to someone else’s negligence, you may file a personal injury claim to recover compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, and in some cases, pain and suffering. Learn what constitutes pain and suffering and how an experienced personal injury attorney can help you recover what you deserve.

What is “Pain and Suffering”?

When most people think of pain and suffering, they may picture physical pain. While pain and suffering does encompass physical pain, it also includes any emotional or mental injuries that a plaintiff may suffer from as a result of an accident.

Typically, recovering damages for pain and suffering is only possible if you have suffered a catastrophic injury or any injury that has caused permanent or long-term loss of physical or mental function. These include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Brain damage
  • Amputation
  • Loss of sight or hearing
  • Paralysis

When your catastrophic injuries are caused by a negligent party, such as a drunk driver or a company with poor safety practices, it’s in your best interest to seek damages for pain and suffering. Compensation can help fund your extensive and unexpected medical treatment and any lost wages.

At Daniel Law Firm, our Memphis catastrophic injury attorneys are well-versed in helping our clients leverage opportunities for recovery wherever they are. We can help get your life back on track as soon as possible.
