A person injured in a Florida car accident is only able to receive money for pain and suffering damages if they can show one of the following: (1) loss of an important bodily function; (2) significant scarring; or (3) permanent injury. If a jury does not make one of these findings, the injured person will not be entitled to compensation for pain and suffering.
