Personal Injury Spotlight: What Are Pain and Suffering Damages and How Are They Calculated?

Illinois law recognizes that pain and suffering is a very real consequence of a severe injury, and even though such “non-economic” damages don’t lend themselves to easy calculation, you can receive compensation for the pain and suffering caused by someone else’s negligence.

Within the two words “pain” and “suffering” is a whole range of physical, emotional, and psychological impacts of an accident or injury. Such elements can include:

  • Physical pain
  • Stress, anxiety, or depression
  • Embarrassment from scarring or disfigurement
  • Limitations and restrictions on the injury victim’s day-to-day life
  • Effect on a victim’s ability to sleep
  • Impact on a victim’s relationships with loved ones
  • Shortened life expectancy

These “non-economic” damages don’t come with an equation or formula for putting a dollar figure on each aspect of an injury victim’s intangible but genuine losses. But like all other elements of a personal injury claim, evidence must be presented as to pain and suffering to recover any damages for such losses.

Examples of the types of evidence that a plaintiff can use to demonstrate pain and suffering and justify an award of damages include:

  • Expert medical testimony
  • Photographs contrasting the injury victim before and after the accident
  • Personal journals or diaries describing the injury victim’s physical and emotional condition
  • Letters or statements from friends and family discussing how the injury has impacted the victim’s life and their relationships with others
  • Proof of mental health issues and treatment

We all know that pain is real and suffering isn’t a figment of our imaginations. But when you are in a court of law and are asking a jury to award you compensation for the pain and suffering a defendant has caused you, it is imperative that you have an experienced personal injury attorney on your side who knows how make your unseen injuries crystal clear.
