Q

Can I Recover for Emotional Suffering After a Construction Amputation Accident?

A
Yes, you may be able to recover damages for emotional suffering after a construction amputation accident. New York and New Jersey personal injury law allows victims to recover for emotional suffering that occurs because of a negligent or intentional act that results in injury. Thus, if your amputation was the result of a workplace construction accident, then you may be entitled to damages for your emotional suffering.

Compensation for emotional suffering must be proven, as do all other types of damages. Thus, it is important to make your New Jersey and New York construction injury lawyer aware of all of the ways in which you are suffering. For example, it is important to detail the activities and/or events that you are no longer able to participate in, the work that you are no longer able to do, any relationships that have been changed, and any emotional distress you incurred during or after the accident.
