Pain and Suffering is Real: Grief Leads to Inflammation in Chronically Stressed Adults
Pain and suffering damages are some of the most debated damages in personal injury law. Critics argue that because these damages are difficult to quantify or value, that they should be limited or eliminated altogether. However, recent studies have shown that pain and suffering, and grief following personal loss, can lead to inflammation responses in adults. This means that grief is not just something that happens in a person’s head. Grief has a real, measurable impact on the body.
