‘Negligent Infliction of Emotional Distress’ Claim is Designed to Compensate People Who Suffered Psychological or Emotional Injuries

Anyone who has witnessed a serious accident knows how traumatic it can be. Of course, witnessing an accident to a close family member, such as a child or parent, can be all the more traumatic. What most people don’t know is that in Pennsylvania, there is an avenue to recovery for those who suffered psychological and emotional trauma as a result of witnessing a horrible accident. The claim of negligent infliction of emotional distress, or “NIED,” is designed to compensate people who suffered psychological or emotional injuries as a result of witnessing an accident, and the party or parties that negligently caused the accident may be liable to the innocent bystander.
