When you have been seriously injured because of another person’s reckless actions, you deserve compensation for your medical bills, lost income, and other financial hardships. However, “emotional pain and suffering” is another equally important type of damages you can pursue in a personal injury case.
The emotional fallout of your injury can be difficult to express in monetary terms, but it often has just as much of an impact on your life as the financial difficulties brought about by your injury. Many personal injury victims suffer from:
- Anxiety and depression
- Trauma caused by scarring or disfigurement
- Frustration due to limited physical ability
- Insecurity and embarrassment
As your Atlanta personal injury lawyers, our job at Robbins & Associates is to pay attention to the many ways your injury has affected your life, then tell your story in a powerful way that underscores what you face on a daily basis because of the accident. Proving emotional pain and suffering requires clearly expressing the various limitations you now have, and how they make you feel. We may potentially use the expert testimony of a psychologist who can help diagnose and articulate your mental and emotional state after the accident.
If you have been injured in an accident because of someone else’s negligence, make sure you receive the maximum amount of compensation you deserve. Please contact Robbins Law, PC today or call (404) 252-8117 to schedule a free case evaluation. We represent personal injury victims in Atlanta and throughout the state of Georgia.
