The Pennsylvania Supreme Court held that a jury's failure to award damages for pain and suffering in a personal injury action where the evidence concerning the plaintiffs injuries is uncontested and the injuries are of the type that common sense dictates involve pain and suffering is shocking to a court's conscience and therefore a new trial is appropriate.
