Can a car accident victim recover damages for emotional distress if no physical injuries occurred as a result of the accident?

No, according to Florida law, the impact rule prevents a car accident victim from being able to recover damages for emotional distress and/or mental anguish occurred, with no physical injuries involved.

See: Welker v. Southern Baptist Hosp. of Florida, Inc., 864 So. 2d 1178 (Fla. Dist. Ct. App. 1st Dist. 2004),
