Injured employee visiting lawyer for adviceIf you’ve been injured in an accident, you may have to juggle the burdens of medical appointments, bills, time away from work, and financial stipulations during your recovery. All the while you’re doing your daily activities, you are probably in pain and may have to deal with it alone - unless you file a case with Reid B. Wissner for your pain and suffering.

What Is Pain and Suffering?

The definition of pain and suffering can include physical and mental pain. They need not be life-threatening but can provide substantial discomfort in day-to-day activities. 

Physical pain and suffering may include but are not limited to:

  • Back and neck pain
  • Slipped disks or broken bones
  • Chronic muscle soreness or nerve damage
  • Torn ligaments or dislocation

Mental pain and suffering are just as liable for compensation as physical pain. Experiencing mental pain after enduring a personal injury from another’s doing is valid in this case. 

Examples of mental pain may include:

  • Anger
  • Fear
  • Anxiety and emotional distress
  • Loss and grief

The severities of both mental and physical pain and suffering can vary from person to person, though do not let that deter you from seeking legal assistance about the possibility of finding financial compensation due to your losses in health. In this case, the right thing to do is to take care of yourself if the pain and suffering from a personal injury are affecting your daily life.
