At Paulozzi LPA, we understand that personal injury cases can involve more than just physical harm. Emotional distress is a serious issue that can have long-lasting effects on a person’s well-being. If you have experienced emotional distress as a result of someone else’s negligence, you may have the right to seek compensation through a lawsuit. 

In this article, we will explore what emotional distress is, how it can be proven in court, and how our team at Paulozzi LPA can help you seek justice.

What is Emotional Distress?

Emotional distress, also known as mental anguish, is a type of harm that can result from a traumatic event or ongoing stress. It can manifest in a variety of ways, including anxiety, depression, fear, and even physical symptoms such as headaches or stomach issues. Emotional distress can be just as debilitating as physical injuries, and it is important to take it seriously when seeking compensation in a personal injury case.

Proving Emotional Distress in Court

Proving emotional distress in court can be challenging, as it is not always as visible or quantifiable as physical injuries. However, with the help of experienced attorneys like those at Paulozzi LPA, it is possible to build a strong case for emotional distress. In order to prove emotional distress, you will need to demonstrate that:

The defendant’s actions caused your emotional distress

You will need to show that the defendant’s negligence or intentional actions directly led to your emotional suffering.

The emotional distress is severe

Courts typically require that emotional distress be severe and debilitating in order to award compensation. This can be demonstrated through medical records, therapy notes, and testimony from mental health professionals.

The emotional distress is a direct result of the defendant’s actions

It is important to establish a clear link between the defendant’s actions and your emotional distress. This can be done through witness testimony, expert opinions, and other evidence.
