If you have been involved in an accident, then you may claim compensation for stress and anxiety. You can also claim for physical and financial damages.
Every personal injury case causes stress and anxiety. These conditions fall under pain and suffering, and are non-economic damages. The amount you can claim depends upon the specifics of your situation.
Stress as a Medically Documented Injury
In some cases, stress can be a medically documented injury. Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a medically diagnosed form of stress. Once stress is diagnosed and placed on the record, it becomes a medically compensable injury.
Non-economical Damages are Capped
In some states, non-economical damages like stress and anxiety are capped. This means there is a limit to the amount a victim can recover. After thorough investigation and analysis, the judge decides whether to award compensation for pain and suffering.
