The emotional distress and injuries suffered from witnessing a family member killed in an auto accident are covered by a State Farm auto insurance policy, a Pennsylvania court has ruled.  The court ruled that the emotional distress sustained by the surviving two brothers and father of the accident victim constituted a "bodily injury" covered by the policy.

Not all car insurance policies are going to cover purely emotional distress injuries; the policy language will have to be considered in each case, which is why an experienced personal injury and accident lawyer is helpful.
