Though similar in nature to "pain and suffering" damages, mental anguish and emotional distress are separate types of damages that you can ask for in your case. This type refers to mental and emotional responses to the trauma of a physical event.

Common symptoms of mental anguish would include:

  • Apprehension
  • Confusion
  • Anxiety
  • Humiliation
  • Terror
  • Shock
  • Sorrow
