I was doing some legal research online, and I learned that in emotional distress cases, "...if the defendant's conduct is not so extreme, the plaintiff may need additional evidence that his or her distress is severe." https://scholarship.law.marquette.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=1073&context=mulr

My question is, how can a plaintiff prove their distress is severe when they cannot afford treatment for emotional injury? Can they sue for the cost of therapy and compensation for lack of productivity?

    You might just need diagnosis in order to prove the level of distress. – George White Jul 18 '20 at 21:56
