Question:

Can I recover emotional damages for my Georgia personal injury case?

Answer:

Seeking Compensation for Emotional Distress Clients often want to know whether they can be compensated for emotional damages in their Georgia personal injury lawsuits. The answer is yes. Under Georgia law, there are multiple different categories of damages which are recoverable from a person who has injured another due to their own negligence. One of those categories is emotional damages. These damages fall into categories such as pain and suffering or emotional distress.

There’s physical pain that goes along with a personal injury suit, but a separate item of recovery is what this does to you mentally – the stress involved, the stress of not being able to live your life the way you want to – and not being able to act as you would if you had not been injured. This is a big item of personal injury law damages, and it’s something that takes a lot of time, effort and working with your attorney to develop the back story describing these emotional issues that you have suffered. If you have questions about these items, please feel free to give us a call and we’ll be happy to help you through the issue.
