Some of the legal terms encountered in personal injury cases can be confusing, unusual or misunderstood. In today's post, we discuss pain and suffering.
We all know pain. We have all experienced suffering and the agony it causes. But how does it work in a personal injury claim.
If you or a loved one is hurt in a car accident, medical malpractice, nursing home neglect, truck crash, or any other type of injury, the law requires you to be compensated for the pain and suffering you have endured. Lawyers and juries consider lots of factors in determining how much compensation to give for pain and suffering. For example, how bad is the pain? How long has it lasted? Will the pain continue into the future? Will the person suffer for the rest of their life? Lawyers call it "nature and extent." Victims who suffer severe injuries are entitled to more compensation for that pain. People who suffer for a longer time are entitled to more compensation for that suffering.
While a personal injury claim will not make the pain and suffering go away, the law says you are entitled to compensation for the pain and suffering the wrongdoer caused. You need a top lawyer to review what happened. At Dixon Law Office we have an entire staff of people who are the best in the business.
