How is Pain & Suffering Calculated?


You have heard “pain and suffering” being thrown around as a descriptor of the kind of damages you can claim in your personal injury case but are likely unaware of what constitutes pain and suffering in the legal sense. As a victim of an injury due to no fault of your own, you have rights to demand compensation from the responsible party. This means your case will pursue financial reimbursement for various expenses, including your medical bills, any time you took off work or could not work, and other damages including pain and suffering.

The state of Texas assigns pain and suffering as an umbrella term to cover a number of emotional and mental damages, including the pain, trauma, stress, and strain your injuries caused you and your loved ones. Pain and suffering also addresses if the injuries were so severe they inhibit your ability to enjoy hobbies or perform simple personal tasks. While you cannot place a tangible price on making up for what you went through, you can make moving on from this trauma easier than not.

Under Texas law, you are entitled to financial compensation for various examples of pain and suffering, including:

  • Disfigurement or physical impairment
  • Loss of enjoyment
  • Loss of companionship
  • Loss of consortium
  • Physical and emotional pain
