As an experienced Rochester Personal Injury Lawyer, when someone comes into our office here, they want to know whether or not they can recover for their emotional damages. What I tell people is that there are really two components to the damages part of their claim. One is obviously your physical injuries, but the second is the emotional injury. Very often when you’re involved in a serious automobile accident or any type of serious accident, there is certainly an emotional component to your injuries. One of the things that has to be done is that it has to be documented just like you would document any physical injury. The simple answer is yes, you can recover for your emotional injuries, but it has to be done properly and it has to be done in a very careful way if you’re going to make that claim.
