What is Pain and Suffering and Mental Anguish?

One of the most challenging things that we have in any kind of personal injury lawsuit is what we call pain and suffering and mental anguish. Most people don't give much credence to pain and suffering and mental anguish. That's a shame because anybody who's ever had an operated back, a broken hip, knows the significant pain that is associated with the recovery and just the event that happened as well as the mental anguish that goes with it. So that's very, very real. The law defines mental anguish as that type of anguish, more than just worried about lack that we all worry about from day to day, but such to the degree that it disrupts your daily routine and activities, because it's really something significant that's happened to you. Pain and suffering on the other hand is again, a very subjective, if you will, phenomenon. Injuries are very, very painful. What we tell our clients is to document and start keeping a diary. We work really, really hard at Parker law firm to understand you and understand your story so that we can communicate it because until the jury gets to know you and your story and what you've been through, they can't appreciate the significance of the pain in the mental anguish that you've been through.

If you have been involved in a serious accident or injury as a result of someone else's negligence or even stupidity, and you want your story told, give me an opportunity to tell them, call me.
