What is mental anguish?
Mental anguish is a term that refers to the emotional suffering a victim experiences after a traumatic incident, such as a serious car accident or the wrongful death of a loved one. Mental anguish can include anxiety, stress, fright, grief, depression and feelings of distress. Emotional distress is another frequently used term for mental anguish.
It is sometimes possible to receive financial compensation for mental anguish in a civil lawsuit, such as a personal injury lawsuit or a wrongful death lawsuit. Compensation for mental anguish is a type of non-pecuniary damages, which are damages that represent non-financial losses or injuries suffered by an accident victim.
