If you’ve been injured from an accident or by the negligence of another that left you with painful injuries or emotional distress, you may be entitled to file a personal injury lawsuit.  If the negligence of another party can be proved, the injured party may be entitled to monetary compensation from that party.

The amount of compensation for a personal injury will primarily depend on the severity of the injury. Serious injuries (such as broken bones, severed limbs, brain damage) that cause intense physical pain and suffering will tend to receive the highest injury settlements.

You may also be compensated for how the injury(ies) have affected you.  This award is part of a claim for pain, suffering and loss of amenity.  One way of putting it, is that it is a loss of one of more of the pleasures of life which you previously enjoyed.
