Emotional Distress, Privacy, and Dignitary Torts

Sometimes injuries can be emotional or mental, and are not immediately apparent. If another person is the reason for your emotional injury, you might be able to sue that person for the injury he or she caused you. You can also sue another person if he or she acts in a manner that's an invasion of your privacy. Both invasion of privacy and emotional distress claims have high hurdles a plaintiff must clear in order to be successful in his or her case.
