I suffered a head injury while working in overseas as a contractor. Immediately after my injury I suffered vision impairment. I saw my assigned medical officer and she stated that I was suffering from eye strain and that I go and purchase eye drops. In the meantime as days went on, my vision continue to worsen to a point were I couldn't see out of my right eye. I experience symptoms such as blurry and double vision and ptosis. It was clear that I need to go to the hospital. Unfortunately, the medical officer refuse to take my injury seriously until my supervisor intervene and got me onboard a helicopter to fly to the nearest hospital and eventually back to the united states. If it wasn't for him, I would probably still be stuck overseas. I feel a sense of negligence towards my care.
Pain and suffering refers to physical and mental trauma caused by an injury, and is often a significant component of non-economic damages.
