Emotional Distress and Privacy
Not all injuries are physical. Sometimes an injury suffered is not immediately apparent to the eye. Just as you can sue someone for inflicting grave physical injury on you, you can also hold them liable for emotional injuries in certain instances. Injuries from the invasion of one's privacy are also compensable in some cases. Both of these claims have high hurdles in terms of what plaintiffs must prove. For example, in order to prove emotional distress, you’ll have to show that the defendant’s conduct was extreme or outrageous. In the Emotional Distress and Privacy subsection, you’ll find articles explaining the requisite elements of both the invasion of privacy and the intentional infliction of emotional distress.
