There are people who roll their eyes and smile cynically when they use the phrase, “pain and suffering”. They smirk and scoff.
That’s only until they’ve been in a serious Connecticut automobile accident or other serious Connecticut personal injury accident. Then, it’s not funny anymore.
When they can’t work and can’t do anything that they used to be able to do before their accident, and they have constant pain and headaches, then they “get it”.
Pain and suffering, or “noneconomic damages”, are those injuries and losses that include physical pain, psychological and emotional injury and mental, or cognitive loss. Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is an example of a psychological damage that can occur as a result of a severe Connecticut personal injury accident.
The pain of a herniated disc, a fractured limb, or the throbbing, incessant headache caused by concussion, are other examples of pain and suffering. Similarly, noneconomic damages can include memory loss, vision and hearing impairment, and permanent reduction in the function of a limb or organ.
When someone is seriously, and I mean seriously injured as a result of a Connecticut car accident, or other severe accident, detailed, clinical healthcare records become legal fuel.
What “legal fuel” means is that while our very injured client goes about the business of restoring their health and their normal life, the notes and reports that their doctors produce allow our Firm to tell the oftentimes compelling story of their pain and suffering.
That’s the story of the dark days. It’s the narrative of a once vital individual who is no longer able to exercise, be a leader at work, or even play with their children.
That’s pain and suffering. Make sure that your law firm can feel it and can tell your story. Call the Maddox Law Firm today.
