Insomnia Lawsuits

Many accident victims suffer from insomnia immediately after an accident. In many injury victims it passes but others are not so lucky. Sleep disorders such as insomnia can be a sign of anxiety, traumatic head or brain injury or even PTSD, and can be considered part of “pain and suffering” or “emotional distress” damages in a personal injury claim. Many people experience sleep problems, but if those problems are the result of an accident and/or the injuries caused by that accident, then sleep troubles may be a valid component of damages in a personal injury case.
