Are “injuries” in a personal injury case strictly defined as physical? Can I be compensated for my emotional and mental injuries?
Injuries would include both physical and psychological symptoms. It is more difficult to obtain compensation purely for emotional or mental health injuries, although that may be possible depending on the particular circumstances of the incident that gave rise to the injuries.
