Pain and suffering is a term used to describe the injuries you have suffered. It is used to explain what problems you experienced after your accident or medical wrongdoing.
When we talk about "Past" and "Future" pain and suffering we refer to the different time periods you are experiencing or have experienced your injuries and damages.
It refers to the time your incident happened up until the time of a jury verdict. When we say "Future pain and suffering" it refers to the pain and suffering you will likely have from the time of your jury verdict into the forseeable future.
In order to support your claim of pain and suffering it is often helpful to bring in your treating doctors to explain to the jury just how your injuries affect you and your daily activities.
