When a party's negligent act leads to a dramatic or severe accident or personal injury, that individual may be liable for the shock and other emotional distress experienced by witnesses who are closely related to the injured party.
Examples of emotional distress victims include:
- A child in an auto accident whose parent suffers severe injury.
- A witness to the wrongful death of a spouse.
- A parent who is present at the drowning death of a child resulting from negligent swimming pool safety.
These events have been documented to lead to conditions such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and other psychological distress.
Emotional distress injuries can be severe, and dealing with insurance companies can be overwhelming. Call our experts today.
