Are You a Victim of Emotional Distress?

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.

Emotional Distress Legal Options

You may consult with an Oklahoma City 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.

How an Attorney Can Help

An attorney can often resolve your particular legal issue faster and better than trying to do it alone. A lawyer can help you navigate the legal system, while avoiding costly mistakes or procedural errors. You should seek out an attorney whose practice focuses on the area of law most relevant to your issue.

Top Questions to Ask a Lawyer

  • What is the usual process to resolve my case? How long will it take to resolve this?
  • What are likely outcomes of a case like mine? What should I expect?

An experienced lawyer should be able to communicate a basic “road map” on how to proceed. The lawyer should be able to walk you through the anticipated process, key considerations, and potential pitfalls to avoid. Once you’ve laid out the facts of your situation to the lawyer, he/she should be able to frame expectations and likely scenarios to help you understand your legal issue.

Does firm size matter?

For most consumer legal issues, the size of the practice is much less important than the experience, competence, and reputation of the attorney(s) handling your case. Among the most important factors when choosing an attorney are your comfort level with the attorney or practice and the attorney’s track record in bringing about quick, successful resolutions to cases similar to yours.
