Suing for Emotional Distress
As a victim of the negligent and intentional actions of individuals, lawyers, political judges that causes him and his followers extreme emotional distress, Musharraf actually may be able to recover for his total damages.

the things is The extent of your recovery for emotional distress is generally limited by the amount of damage you suffer, and the severity of distress inflicted. ( in this case HUGE!!!)

Many lawyers are hesitant to take a case based solely on emotional distress because the amount of damage can be relatively small.

There are two types of emotional distress lawsuits: negligent infliction of emotional distress, and intentional infliction of emotional distress:

Negligent Infliction of Emotional Distress
Negligently acting or not acting in a way that causes someone to endure emotional pain
There must be a connection between the wrongdoer’s conduct and the emotional distress
To be successful in a lawsuit, the distress must result from a physical injury or be so egregious that it results in physical symptoms

Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress
The wrongdoers conduct must be intentional or reckless
The conduct must be outrageous and intolerable
There must be a connection between the wrongdoer’s conduct and the emotional distress
The emotional distress must be severe
To be successful in a lawsuit, the distress must be very extreme or outrageous

If you are a casualty of negligent or deliberate actions of another individual that causes you emotional distress, you can sue such a person in the court of law.

There are two kind of emotional distress lawsuits that end at the court, intentional infliction and negligent infliction of emotional distress.

5 Ways to Prove Emotional Distress
By Andrew Lu on February 4, 2013 5:41 AM

Emotional distress may be one of the most difficult injuries to prove. Unlike a broken arm or leg, there are no X-rays someone can point to, or even a scar you can display to prove your injuries.

Instead, emotional distress is largely psychological. And while the suffering can be as great, if not greater, than physical injuries, plaintiffs can have a hard time proving to a court they are entitled to damages given the difficulty of proof.

For those considering or pursuing a claim for emotional distress, here are five ways you may be able to prove your claim:

Intensity. The more intense the mental anguish, the better chance you have of proving that your emotional distress was severe enough to deserve compensation. In some cases, however — particularly, cases alleging negligent (rather than intentional) infliction of emotional distress, courts will typically require some sort of physical injury as well.

Duration. Persistent and recurring pain that remains with you for a long period of time, like post traumatic stress, may also help prove severe emotional distress.

Related Bodily Harm. While it may be difficult to point out evidence of the emotional distress, you may more easily provide evidence of related bodily injury like ulcers, headaches, and other physical signs of distress.

Underlying Cause. The more extreme the underlying cause of the emotional distress, the more likely a court will find emotional distress. For example, surviving a bombing may be more likely to support a claim than being the victim of an ordinary read-end car accident that resulted in no physical injuries.

Doctor’s Note. A note by a doctor or psychologist should be provided to support every claim.

You will typically need to incorporate several of these methods in proving your claim. For example, you may want to demonstrate both the intensity and duration of your distress and provide supporting medical documentation from your doctor for the psychological pain and any related physical injuries.

If you are making a claim for emotional distress, you will want to work with an experienced personal injury attorney. Proof can be very difficult in these claims, and an attorney can help guide you through your case.
