What Are the Legal Consequences of Having Paranoid Delusions?
Intentional infliction of emotional distress or mental distress is a tort claim for intentional conduct that results in mental reaction such as anguish, grief, or fright to another person’s actions that entails recoverable damages. In order to pursue such a claim, there needs to be proof of conduct intended to cause hrm. Since these individuals don't know eachother and the means of causing harm is unknown, this will be vitually impossible.
I have no doubt that the fear you experience is very real. However, the cause of fear is often very different in objective reality than they are perceived to be in a person's subjective reality. What you describe appears to be more of a psychological issue than a legal one. I strongly urge you to seek further help and be persistent in locating a mental health professional who can assist you. If your fear is due to delusions, it may be treatable through medication and/or counseling and failure to treat it could lead to involuntary commitment in an institution.
