What is a Personal Injury Claim?

What constitutes an emotional injury?

Emotional injury refers to any kind of stress, abuse, slander, neglect, defamation, or libel caused by an event that was outside of your control. An emotional injury happens during a traumatic event or series of events that may or may not be coupled with a physical injury.

How can you know if you’ve suffered from emotional injury? Here are some signs:

  • Impaired ability to socialize
  • Decrease in productivity
  • Decreased ability to fulfill responsibilities
  • Changed mental state

Why would you need to prosecute an emotional injury in court? Emotional injuries can be long-lasting and create a loss in money. The loss in money consists of treatment for emotional injury (counseling), along with the loss in salary or earnings due to missing work.

If you feel you are suffering from an emotional injury, we advise you to get professional counseling from a therapist to help you get back on track and on the path to health.

If the emotional trauma was suffered without an accompanying physical injury, the case is harder to prosecute because it is more ambiguous, but that does not mean that it cannot be won. If you would like help figuring out if you have a good case for emotional injury, contact a Stokes & Kopitsky personal injury lawyer, and we can give you a free consultation to help you know if you would likely win.
