Can You Sue for Pain and Suffering in Wisconsin?
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.
