Psychological injury because of death to family member

Can you sue someone because death of a family member has caused you a psychological injury?    Yes.

The law recognises that if a person’s negligence caused the death of another person, then certain people who develop a mental illness because of the death may be able to claim for compensation for medical treatment, loss of wages and their pain and suffering.  These claims are called mental harm claims.
