Mexican laws provide a damage cap for injuries and wrongful death, whereas a jury in the United States has virtually unbridled discretion in awarding such damages. One of the main differences between Mexican and U.S. law in personal injury cases is that Mexican law does not allow for “pain and suffering” damages. Often, the only recoverable damages in Mexico are medical expenses and a limited amount for physical impairment. Moreover, U.S. companies are thought to have “deeper pockets.”
