Massachusetts personal injury victims can recover significant monetary damages for emotional distress – namely, mental or emotional pain and suffering – if they can show objective corroboration to prove that the pain and suffering exists. This can mean getting a doctor or a coworker to testify about the effects of your emotional distress. The proof is going to differ depending on the particular facts and circumstances of your case.

Any physical injuries that result from the emotional distress – severe stress, for example, can result in physical injuries such as ulcers, severe migraines and other conditions – is also an element of monetary damages that personal injury plaintiffs can recover in a Massachusetts personal injury action.

Third parties who are related or emotionally connected to a Massachusetts personal injury victim or a wrongful death victim can also recover for money damages emotional distress under certain conditions. Parents who witness an accident causing death or serious injury to their minor child, or who arrive at the scene of the injuries shortly after the accident, have been able to recover for the emotional trauma and distress resulting from witnessing such a scene under Massachusetts law. Massachusetts courts are reluctant, however, to extend their recovery to emotional distress damages to third parties beyond that specific scenario.

If you think that a defendant intentionally caused you emotional distress, you can recover money damages if all of the following are correct:

  1. The defendant’s conduct can be considered as extreme and outrageous – in other words, the defendant’s behavior is utterly intolerable in a civilized society.

  2. The defendant actually intended to cause the emotional distress, or knew or should have known that his conduct or inaction would likely cause emotional distress.

  3. The defendant’s conduct caused you to experience emotional distress.

  4. The emotional distress was severe – in other words, no typical person would be expected to be able to bear such distress.

The behavior must be fairly egregious under Massachusetts law in order for you to recover for intentionally inflicted emotional distress. Although the conduct does not have to be illegal, death threats are a good example of conduct so heinous that it constitutes intentionally caused emotional distress.
