We’re here to fight for you.
Emotional distress damages are intended to compensate you for the psychological impact your injury has had on your daily life. Symptoms can include: depression, anxiety, changes to your sleeping patterns, mood swings, etc. In order to make a claim, emotional distress must be directly related to incidents or events that happened because of personal or corporate negligence.
Since we cannot take a picture like an x-ray or an MRI to assess your emotional and psychological injuries, these injuries can sometimes be challenging to prove, despite how real they are to the person who is injured. We will help you put forward your information that the defense needs to support this part of your case.
Our team of expert lawyers are here to help you through this emotionally difficult time and to fight for you on and off the court. Contact us today for your free consultation with $0 in upfront fees.

Always in Your Court to Fight for You
When I went to Rob to help me out with my car accident, he became more of a friend. I was frustrated with therapy and on the verge of depression, and he totally made me feel comfortable. He made me feel really important, like I was top priority. Going through mediation he was very well prepared. I had complete confidence in him, and he made me feel confident in myself too. Above all, having had experiences with lawyers, I had a really good sense of his integrity. He’s very approachable with a good sense of humour. I’ve recommended him to my friends and family.
Rob was great. I initially had another lawyer who was totally unavailable and left me floundering. I fired that lawyer and met with Rob, and the difference was incredible. In the years that he handled my case, I couldn’t believe the availability – he came to my home in Dunnville if that was more convenient for me, he was really accommodating and sympathetic to my situation. I was so impressed with him that my girlfriend fired her lawyer and came to Rob too. She had a brain injury, so it was great to know she was safe and in good hands when I couldn’t be there. It’s rare to find a lawyer with that kind of honesty and integrity. He’s a good guy and he’ll fight for you all the way. I would recommend him to absolutely anyone. Choosing the right lawyer is the most important decision you can make. If you don’t like your lawyer, you have the right to switch – and you’ll never regret choosing Rob Hooper.
Rob was extremely helpful and definitely went the extra mile to help me out. Rob and his staff were very compassionate towards my situation and took the load off my shoulders. He helped me get through the whole case – it was my first mediation and with Rob it was really easy. The whole process from beginning to end was very smooth and very stress-free. I’ll definitely be using him again in the future. Thank you, Rob!
I’d like to thank you, Mr. Robert Hooper, and everyone else at the Hooper Law Office for everything that has been done for me and to win my case. I feel relieved now that this long overdue case has now been settled and I can put this unfortunate accident behind me. Once again thank you for everything that has been done.
Thank you so much for all of your assistance over these past several months. You and Mr. Hooper have been such a great blessing to us. Thank you again!
