As an experienced Buffalo Personal Injury Attorney, I am often asked if you can recover for emotional damages in an accident. In any personal injury case, a plaint is entitled to recover for all injuries that they sustained as a result of the accident. Included in those injuries are emotional injuries. Emotional injuries can come about in a number of ways. Initially we look to see if there has been any treatment for emotional injuries by an MSW, a psychologist, or a psychiatrist. However, even in the absence of that type of treatment, there is a component part of damages called loss of enjoyment of life. A loss of enjoyment of life includes the emotional part of an injury that comes about from an inability to be able to do things that you otherwise used to do before the accident happened.
