Emotional distress is mental anguish and suffering caused by stressful situations or circumstances, such as harassment, defamation or even a personal injury. Many courts today allow damages for emotional distress even if no actual physical harm occurred. Because emotional distress can be feigned, these cases can be difficult to prove.
You may consult with an Omaha lawyer experienced in litigating emotional distress cases. Such a lawyer will know how to prove emotional distress did occur and how to determine an amount for damages. Emotional distress cannot be claimed for breached contracts and business dealings.
