Pain and Suffering
Pain and suffering is something hard to measure. This was an issue in Harper v. Norman decided yesterday by the Mississippi Court of Appeals located here. There was only about $2,000.00 in medical bills but pain and suffering that continue through the day of trial. The jury granted a $25,000.00 verdict and this was affirmed. The Court of Appeals noted that this amount did not shock the conscience. Also this case indicated that pain and suffering is not determined by the amount of medical bills which insurance companies always try to argue.
