Past & Future Mental Anguish

When a jury is considering the damages in a car accident case, one of the blanks they must fill out is past mental anguish and future mental anguish.  This is referring to how the accident has impacted you mentally on a day to day basis.  Being involved in a car accident For example, if you have a broken bone and you’re in bed at night, and you cannot sleep because the pain is so bad.  It may start to wear you down and get you stressed out, to the point where you get upset with your family or your upset with friends and you just can’t get through the day.  It can cause you to be short tempered and causing problems, or just everyday things become more difficult.  These are the things that we talk about with mental anguish and those are the things that a jury comes back and can give you some damages for.  If you have been in a car accident and you are suffering mentally from it, then give us a call and we will try to prove those damages for you.
