The term emotional harm encompasses all those situations in which a person suffers physiological or psychological harm due to the negligent or intentional actions of an entity. These can be the mental repercussions of physical injuries (such as brain trauma causing memory lapses, insecurities caused by permanent scarring, or physical reactions resulting from emotionally charged scenarios) or any other type of psychological or emotional consequence resulting from an accident.

Regardless of their nature, injuries are rarely a purely physical experience. What happens to your body can also affect your mental state. Fortunately, the laws in California recognize this and allow victims to obtain compensation for their emotional suffering. Do not face that situation on your own, contact us and we will make sure to help you obtain compensation that will help you deal with all those emotional damages that you may have suffered.
