If you have recently been injured in an auto accident in the San Fernando Valley, you are probably focused on your physical injuries. But what many accident victims do not know is that emotional and/or mental trauma is quite common following a car crash and you have the right to seek financial compensation for both.
Emotional Pain and Suffering
As we have discussed, a car accident victim can recover financial damages for emotional pain and suffering. Many injured victims, however, pay little attention to the effects of the car accident on their emotional and mental health. They are too busy dealing with physical injuries (broken bones, whiplash), mounting medical bills, and unhelpful insurance companies to focus on potential emotional trauma. This isn’t right.
