What is pain and suffering?

Pain and suffering is an essential part of many personal injury cases. Pain and suffering is a legal term that refers to a variety of injuries that may occur as a result of an accident. Not only does pain and suffering cover the physical pain of an injury, but also the emotional and mental injuries, such as Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and mental anguish. If another party is liable for the incident, a personal injury victim may be able to recover general damages for pain and suffering in addition to compensation for special damages, associated with the injury and treatment.
