What is pain and suffering?
Pain and suffering is a legal term which describes the resulting physical, mental, and emotional consequences of your injury. Psychological trauma, physical aches and pains, and depression can all count as pain and suffering. Pain and suffering compensation is above and beyond any “compensatory damages,” which repay you for any money spent directly on medical care and the like. Pain and suffering damages, conversely, seek to repay you for the long-term aftereffects of your injury.
