Edward D. Carlson

Prominent Tampa personal injury attorney Edward D. Carlson of Carlson, Meissner, Hart and Hayslett P.A. educates Floridian drivers by explaining the types of pain and suffering damages inflicted upon an accident victim. Physical pain and suffering, mental anguish and loss of enjoyment of life are serious damages in which the plaintiff deserves justice following an incident.

“An accident may seriously affect a person’s daily wellbeing,” said Carlson. “Whether the injured person is mentally inflicted or physically disabled, they deserve justice and rightful compensation.”

Most commonly, physical pain is caused as a direct result of the defendant’s negligence. This can include pain from a broken limb, a concussion, or future physical afflictions as a result of the accident. Mental suffering is another justifiable type of pain. Emotional stress, anxiety, shock and humiliation can be proven as types of pain and suffering caused by the accident. Other damages include the plaintiff’s loss of enjoyment of life. In this instance, the injury affects the plaintiff’s lifestyle, hobbies or conveniences. Some damages are not quantifiable, meaning it is very difficult to assess the amount of compensation necessary for each affliction. Because they are subjective, it is important to have each case reviewed by an experienced accident lawyer.

If you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident due to someone else's negligence, it is important to contact an experienced injury attorney. Attorney Carlson is a University of Florida Law School alumni with more than 45 years of experience representing Tampa Bay area residents injured in accidents.
