Mental anguish and emotional distress are common responses to the trauma of a physical injury or accident. The following are some signs or symptoms of mental anguish and emotional distress:
- Loss of self-confidence due to your injury
- Dropping out of your usual activities because of loss of self-confidence
There are many situations that can cause severe emotional distress in a person, to the degree that their life is affected by the emotional trauma. When you have suffered such emotional stress because of actions caused by another, you may be able to file a lawsuit against the person or company responsible. There are many types of actions that can lead to emotional distress, some which include:
- Dog bites
- Assault & Battery
- False imprisonment
- Defamation of character
- Medical procedures
Someone who has suffered a severe accident such as a dog bite or assault may be severely affected by the incident. The effects of this emotional distress can lead to serious consequences for someone, including depression, grief, anxiety, fear and humiliation. With these effects, a person can then find it hard to properly function at work and may have trouble with relationships as well. Their overall quality of life can be inhibited by this emotional distress.
