Hello. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be happy to answer your question.

Generally in a car accident where the motorist did not suffer any personal injury, this motorist would not be able to sue for any type of emotional distress.

However the motorist can sue for the loss of use of the vehicle that was a total loss, but generally not for the time spend looking for a new car.
