Jury Awards $1.5 Million for Stress Disorder
Date: March 23, 2001
A Philadelphia jury yesterday awarded $1.5 million to a Pep Boys customer who claimed that an injury at the car servicing center precipitated post-traumatic stress disorder in that it reminded her of a similar injury from her childhood.[...]“The most important thing was to convey to the jury that this emotional condition is as real as a physical condition and, in many respects, it may be more limiting and damaging in [one‘s] day-to-day activities as a physical injury may be," Oxman said.
