Pain And Suffering

Pain and suffering is the legal term for the physical and emotional stress caused from an injury (see also pain and suffering).

When filing a lawsuit as a result of an injury, it is common for someone to seek money both in compensation for actual money that is lost and for the pain and stress associated with virtually any injury.
