Emotional Pain and Suffering in Personal Injury Claims

Emotional Pain and Suffering in Personal Injury Claims

Friday, June 14th, 2013

One of the questions Brooklyn residents with personal injury claims ask their accident lawyers is how much they are entitled to for emotional pain and suffering. This is a difficult question for even the most experienced accident lawyers to answer. Victims understand they are entitled to justice and compensation for their emotional pain just as much as their physical pain. Unfortunately, accident lawyers often have difficulty trying to prove emotional pain and suffering, as the scars are mental, not physical. However, Charles N. Rock, an experienced accident lawyer, can help you prove your claims of emotional pain and suffering.

Some symptoms of emotional pain and suffering include:

  • Trouble sleeping
  • Withdrawal from the world
  • Mental anguish
  • Anxiety
  • Significant anger or frustration

This list is obviously far from exhaustive, as emotional pain and suffering can manifest in many subtle, hard-to-spot ways. When speaking with your accident lawyer about your personal injury claim, make clear to him or her your state of mind. Explain what you’ve gone through psychologically since your injury. Whether you’ve been through an auto accident or experienced medical malpractice, the accident lawyer will be able to guide you through the process, put your mind at ease and take the steps needed to get you what you are entitled to as a personal injury victim.

If you have suffered a personal injury in Brooklyn or elsewhere in New York and you need an experienced accident lawyer, please contact the offices of Charles N. Rock, P.L.L.C today to schedule a free consultation.
