Question:

Can I recover for emotional damages from a personal injury claim?

Answer:

We were speaking recently with a lady who was involved in a a pretty bad car crash. She ended up having to go to the ER by ambulance. As a result of the accident, she has been out of work, on a bunch of pain medication, and not feeling too good. The pain that she’s experiencing has given her insomnia, and that’s causing depression and anxiety, too. In short, she’s having a difficult time adjusting to this new life that she has right now.

One of the things she wanted to know during our consultation was, “I know I can get money for my medical bills, but what about this emotional pain that I’m feeling? What about this suffering that I’m going through right now? I can’t take care of my kids. My daily life is just different. I can’t sleep. I can’t take a shower. I can’t work.” Her whole life was upside down, through no fault of her own. One thing we did discuss was that Texas does allow for compensation of emotional injuries, pain and suffering, and mental anguish.

In certain situations, people here in Texas can recover for emotional damages. When you’ve been involved in a car crash, it can turn your life upside down unexpectedly in ways that you weren’t imagining. That’s why it’s important to get with a personal injury trial attorney— someone who is skilled at understanding, developing, and proving these damages in front of a jury, if the insurance company decides not to do the right thing.
