Q: Can I recover medical expenses in a defamation lawsuit?

A: In limited circumstances, a person may recover medical expenses in a defamation lawsuit. Now, if the defamatory comments cause you such emotional distress where you feel you need to go see a psychiatrist or a psychologist or other mental health counselor, you can recover those expenses in a defamation law suit. Sometimes the emotional distress manifests itself with physical symptoms, and if you go see a medical doctor to address those physical symptoms which arose from the mental anguish from the defamatory statements you can claim those damages in a defamation lawsuit.
