Emotional Distress

Sometimes a situation is so emotionally stressful that you can have physical symptoms. Some jurisdictions do not even require that you have a physical injury, as long as you suffered severe emotional distress from someone else’s outrageous conduct.

This type of personal injury can arise when you witness something terrible happen to a loved one as a result of another person’s negligence or intentional misconduct. A personal injury attorney can advise you as to the law in your jurisdiction regarding this type of personal injury, which is treated very differently across the United States.
