Emotional Distress Claim Allowed in Car Crash Lawsuit


Posted on Jun 13, 2008

The Supreme Court in New Jersey recently decided that a woman who saw her own mother killed in a car wreck can sue the other driver for negligently inflicting emotional distress.

The decision reached allows the claim to be made despite the state's previous position that generally only allowed victims to sue only for physical injuries.
