Mental anguish is defined as the psychological distress that is experienced through a traumatic event.
These traumatic events can come in many different forms and cause terrible thoughts, which often lead to psychological distress, thus resulting in mental anguish. Often times, to prove an individual is suffering from mental anguish, documents must be provided to demonstrate how intense these the psychological issues experienced truly were.
If you or someone you love is suffering from mental anguish due to a traumatic event, our attorneys believe that the negligent individual who caused such damage must be held accountable for their actions in the court of law. In some cases, the victim in these cases may be eligible to receive compensation for their losses and damages including; medical expenses, pain and suffering, and loss of wages.
