A serious accident is a traumatic event for anyone to experience. If you have been injured and suffered from stress, sadness or depression following an accident, you may be legally entitled to monetary compensation for emotional distress.

Emotional stress can affect a person’s thought process. It can cause mood swings, forgetfulness, embarrassment, eating disorders and anxiety.

These mental health conditions can significantly limit a person’s overall quality of life. Time consuming and expensive doctor visits may be needed.

How to Prove Emotional Distress

Medical diagnosis is generally necessary to prove your psychological injury claim.

This important evidence is subject to review by the Defendant’s own medical experts.

Further, treatment for the condition, such as counseling, therapy or prescription drugs are generally necessary in order to be awarded compensation for your emotional distress claim.

The law allows accident victims to recover compensation for these emotional injuries in two primary circumstances:

  1. The distress is accompanied by a physical bodily injury, or
  2. The distress is intentionally inflicted upon the injured party by the defendant
