Injury: Severe psychological injury
A person may also incur psychological ‘injury’. For instance, due to a direct or indirect confrontation with the serious accident of another person. This person can then claim what is referred to as emotional damages. There need not be a (family) relationship between the victim of the accident and the person incurring psychological injury. However, there must be a situation of severe emotional damage (shock). If there is a relation between the victim and the person incurring psychological injury, then the severe emotional damage might be considered more likely than in the absence of such a relation.
- A mother is called from her house because her daughter has been hit by a car, right in front of the house. She runs from the house and sees a shocking scene involving her deceased daughter. This so upsets the mother that she cannot work during a period of a year and needs psychiatric care. The mother has a right to compensation for emotional damages.
