When it comes to personal injury cases, pain and suffering is just the tip of the iceberg. Those injured at the hand of someone else are entitled to more compensation than just for pain and suffering. They are also entitled to compensation for things like medical bills, lost current and future wages, and any related out-of-pocket expenses. The negligent party must also compensate the victim if, for instance, the victim had a hard time paying their medical bills upfront and their credit rating was therefore negatively impacted.
Another factor that must be compensated for appropriately is if the injured victim needs permanent medical care or becomes permanently disabled. So the person injured is not only entitled to compensation for their current medical bills, but also any future medical costs they incur that resulted from the accident.
So, even though it’s true that pain and suffering are part of most any personal injury case, it’s only a fraction of the total equation.
