Physical anguish may be the ongoing pain resulting from an accident or injury. Physical anguish may be a debilitating pain that prevents you from being able to work on a regular basis or at all. Physical anguish is also often referred to as ‘pain and suffering.” Pain and suffering may result from a wide variety of injuries.

Possible causes of physical anguish include:
Pain and suffering may sound like a broad category for compensation. However, in many situations, it is the only adequate description. Pain and suffering may result from a painful injury and/or an injury that required painful treatment. It may also include the pain following the injury. For example, a shattered knee in a car accident may result in the need for a knee replacement, which is a painful process in itself. The physical pain of an accident may be ongoing and cause suffering. In the case of some injuries, the physical pain never really goes away.
Pain and suffering may also apply to emotional pain and suffering. This may include having to deal with the death of a loved one. Oftentimes, parents may sue for pain and suffering after the traumatic loss of a child, or a spouse may sue for pain and suffering after the death of their partner. There may also be the emotional pain and suffering of living with a disfigurement. For example, if a woman is hit by a car while walking and loses her leg as a result of the accident, she will be forced to live with the physical disfigurement of only having one leg. Although she may get a prosthetic and learn to live with an amputation, she may always feel pain over the loss of her leg.
