PERSONAL INJURY Lawyers in Vermont & New Hampshire
Securing Damages for Emotional Pain & Suffering
One of the most difficult aspects of a personal injury claim is emotional pain and suffering. Proving a physical injury is relatively straightforward for a skilled and experienced personal injury attorney in New Hampshire. There are medical reports. There are witnesses who can testify that you’ve openly dealt with an injury from your car accident, for example. And you might still bear the scars of the injury.
Emotional pain and suffering, however, do not manifest themselves in such obvious ways. It’s difficult for people to see what you’re going through. There are no obvious scars. Even trained physicians are not always in a place to observe the symptoms. Our personal injury attorneys at Van Dorn, Curtiss & Rousseau, PLLC know that your emotional pain and suffering are no less real for being difficult to see, and we’ll work tirelessly to ensure you get the justice and compensation you deserve for every element of your claim.

Symptoms of Emotional Pain & Suffering
Every individual is unique, and the psychological trauma of a personal injury case manifests differently in everyone. But some symptoms of emotional pain and suffering are relatively common, and a personal injury attorney should be able to help you recognize them. These symptoms include:
- Trouble sleeping
- Withdrawal from the world
- Mental anguish
- Anger or frustration
Proving Emotional Pain and Suffering
Obviously, proving these symptoms is difficult, and many people are skeptical of emotional pain and suffering claims. But there are some steps you can take to help your injury attorney prove your trauma.
First, don’t try and “tough out” the psychological pain. There’s no shame in experiencing pain and suffering after something as significant as a personal injury. Speak to a trained medical professional such as a psychologist or a therapist about what you’re experiencing. Get records of your visits. It will help to prove that your problems are long-running and well-documented.
