In Canada, the concept of pain and suffering are damages that an injured party can seek. An injured party can claim compensatory damages for the actual loss that they have experienced. If you have been involved in a tort, assault, medical malpractice, accident, or another wrongful act, you may be eligible to claim damages for pain and suffering. In Canada, the courts consider various factors to establish the extent of pain and suffering an individual may be able to claim including the severity of the injury, the effect of the injury on a person’s life, the ability to be able to go back to work, duration of the injury, if the injury is short-term or long-term, etc.
