What are Pain and Suffering Damages?
If you were in any kind of accident, you might end up with serious injuries. These injuries can be expensive, and you might have to take off of work to recover. When your injury is the result of someone else’s negligence, then you might be eligible for compensation. The most common damages people are familiar with are compensatory damages. This usually includes any kind of damage that has an actual monetary value. This could include things like your medical bills, property damage, missed work, and more. Pain and suffering fall under the category of general Compensatory damages. These are things that are intangible. Physical impairment, mental anguish, and disfigurement are some examples. However, the most common form of non-economic damages is pain and suffering.
Calculating pain and suffering isn’t easy. You can’t simply look at someone and say someone is owed X amount for the trama they went through. In Texas, you have to provide proof of pain and suffering. Usually, this includes a testimony, and possibly medical records to indicate the amount of pain a person has gone through. Once pain and suffering are proved, the court then calculates how much you are owed based on the severity of your injury. There is no magic formula to determine pain and suffering. However, discussing your case with a personal injury attorney can help you get a better idea of what is owed to you.
