Can You Sue for Pain and Suffering in Wisconsin?

June 2022

Wisconsin law allows for an injured person to sue for pain and suffering.  However, the the term "pain and suffering" is a narrow term that is much better defined in the instructions that are given to a jury at trial.  The law defines "pain and suffering" broadly as physical pain, worry, distress, embarrassment and humiliation.  The law also allows a jury to compensate for the impact to normal life activities and the loss of the pleasures and benefits of life.  A lawyer who is experienced in the field of personal injury can help you develop your case for greater value when it is presented to a jury.

At Herrick & Hart, we offer a free consultation on personal injury cases.  If you have been injured, you should speak to a personal injury attorney.  If you wait to long to speak with someone after you are injured, you could do harm to your case.
