Why you don’t need to prove physical harm to claim pain in Arizona
If you’ve been involved in an accident, you may be living with many other symptoms of the pain endured from having an accident, from anxiety, irritability, and even insomnia. You may also be adding to your mental trauma by worrying that the suffering you or they are experiencing won’t be recognized in the eyes of the law- but you’d be wrong.
The law in Arizona has undergone some significant changes in recent years to protect victims of an accident in their mental pain and suffering after an accident as well as physical harm. This means, your accident doctor will be able to provide the courts with sufficient evidence of suffering to ensure it’s involved in your overall settlement
Common Symptoms of Pain and Suffering After an Accident you may not Expect
Anxiety, depression, anger, stress, and irritability- these may be common symptoms of having experienced a car accident but what about the headaches, insomnia, and ongoing PTSD that can also happen. These are considered a mental injury and is typically caused by terror or shock of nearly dying or watching a close loved one’s injury or death. This is a different type of mental anguish, referred to as the Negligent Infliction of Emotional Distress, and will be recognized by a court of law in our state as a separate injury to the physical injuries you’ve also endured.
Here in Arizona, our law separates the term emotional distress from negligence in an auto accident, meaning a good lawyer will define it as an entirely separate claim that helps recognize the horror you or a family member has experienced.
