Pain and suffering describes the physical and emotional stress caused from an injury such as disability, inconvenience, disfigurement, loss of enjoyment of life, and loss of expectation of life.
You are entitled to compensation for the pain and suffering caused by your accident. In 1978, the Supreme Court of Canada set a limit to this amount which, with inflation, is currently capped at approximately $350,000 for the most severe injuries.
