How To Sue A Narcissists For Emotional Distress! Yes, This Is Real!

Narcissists are genuinely nasty people to be around. They come into our lives with their pity stories, no one understands me LIES, and their love-bombing campaigns to catch us off guard.

Or some narcissists will sleaze their way into a person’s life like the slugs and snakes they are!

Abuse doesn’t always need to be physical. There are several types of abuse that a person can put someone through that leaves no physical scars.

The silent treatment being one of these abuses.

Parents who do this to their kids are ABUSING THEIR KIDS!

Partners who give the silent treatment are abusing their partners.


In this article, I want to show you how you can take steps to sue a narcissist for the emotional roller coaster they have put you through.

This can help you score some blow against the wrongs that they have done to you because heaven knows that these people will never apologize for the wrong.

Listed below is a Step by Step guide to show you how to sue a narcissist who has caused emotional distress successfully!

How To Sue A Narcissists

Now, before I begin it is important to know that you can sue someone for emotional distress BUT only for outrageous things they have done.

And if you have been with a narc then you should have enough information and evidence to prove that being with them has caused your life to turn for the worst!

Excerpt From Psychology Today:

Intentional infliction of emotional distress (IIED), also known as intentional infliction of mental distress or the tort of “outrage,” is a tort claim for intentional conduct that results in extreme emotional distress.

The elements are:

(1) The defendant acted intentionally or recklessly;
(2) The defendant’s conduct was extreme and outrageous; and
(3) The defendant’s act is the cause of distress; and
(4) The plaintiff suffers severe emotional distress as a result of the defendant’s conduct.

Step By Step Guide To Learn How To Sue A Narcissists

Step 1: Document The Emotional Distress

This is SO IMPORTANT, and thanks to social media and the technological age we live in, it is NOT difficult to show how you were BEFORE you were with the narc and how you were AFTER being with the narc.

There are many pictures of people on Facebook who show how they looked before the narc. And you will see how warm, radiate, and HAPPY they were. But then after being with a narc how BROKEN they were.

They say pictures say a thousand words, and all those pictures and selfies you had can be used as evidence.

It would also be a good idea to try and scour through all your text messages and messages on social media sent between you and them.

You probably have enough evidence of their verbal abuse in your messages.

These people have NO FILTER.

Now use that against them!

Write down everything they sad, did to you, messaged you, and sent you that hurt you and caused anxiety, depression or even PTSD, all of this is going to help you out.

Document the pain!

Step 2: Understand The Intensity Of The Distress

Now, it is not uncommon for many of us to experience G.A.D (General Anxiety Disorder)Depression, PSTD, or C-PTSD!

If you have visited a psychologist AFTER being with the narcissist because you have been diagnosed with one of these or any other mental illness that developed after you were with the narc, this is MORE EVIDENCE!

If you are on pills or seeing a therapist consistently, you have evidence that you have been damaged emotionally and psychologically.

And this helps because it shows that it interferes with your everyday life!


How To Sue A Narcissists

I cannot stress this enough, as I wrote in the introduction. SPEAK WITH A LAWYERPLEASE SPEAK WITH A LAWYER — this article is just informational purposes. It is not professional legal advice.

Now, that this note has been repeated, you need to speak with a lawyer to see if you have a case.

Because emotional distress cases have so many grey areas!

There are ways that you may not have a case, and having a professional look over your claim will help determine if you have a claim.

Research! Research! And do more research before finding a lawyer!

You want someone who knows about narcissism (you will be surprised how many people are unaware) as they will know what will be the best way to win this case if you so choose to go forth and sue the narcissist.

I say this NOT to deter you, but to prepare you!

Understand that going to court is like going to war and to a narc they will love this…ONLY if you do not come prepared!

Step 4: Filing For Your Complaint

This is important!

Research your state’s statute of limitations. Each state has its statute of limitations, meaning you have a window to bring these charges against the narcissist.

Please do your due diligence here and research your state statute of limitations to see how long your window of opportunity of suing them is opened!

Step 5: Assembling Evidence

During this process, each side will find out information about the other side!

For example, the narc’s lawyer might reach out to old employees, old neighbors, and old acquaintances to get more “info” about you. This is somewhat like a smear campaign, especially if the narc will be using flying monkeys who have NO MINDS OF THEIR OWN!

Prepare! Prepare! And prepare yourself!

Note, you may also be asked to take a deposition, an oral testimony before the trail.

Compose yourself!

Lastly, have your lawyer file a motion of particular evidence that is not fair, and they may dismiss that evidence.


Step 6: Taking Your Case To Trail

Get ready to go to court. Work with your attorney! All the evidence, eye-witnesses, and preparation will now come to light!

Step 7: Settling Out Of Court

Lastly, you can also have the option of settling out of court! If this is a path that you would like to go down, know this is also a possibility!

How To Sue A Narcissists For Emotional Distress! Yes, This Is Real!

If you feel like suing your narcissists then I highly recommend (and please do as I have mentioned twice) to speak with a legal advisor!

You may never get the apology from the narc — but you can at least be compensated for they damage they inflicted on you.

Good luck!

No Shame In Therapy

Narcissistic people can do a wonder on someone’s mind and psychology. In fact, I wrote an article called “10+ Mental Illnesses Caused By Staying With A Narcissists“.

The narcissists and their legion of fools can slowly drive you insane. And sometimes the best help you can ever receive is from a stranger. 

When everyone around you is trying to convince you that YOU are the bad person, sometimes an objective view of you from someone you don’t know maybe what saves you from drowning in the sea of insanity the narc and their legion of fools try and drown you in. 

Therapy can help heal in ways that reading blogs, listening to videos, and talking with other WARRIORS (we are not survivors, we are warriors) can ever do. 

Join my Facebook Fan Page “No Shame In Therapy” to get a 20% discount on your first-month session, as well as articles and updates on the benefits of therapy.

Narcs have a legion of fools behind them to hurt you, I think it would be a good thing to build your own army of warriors and allies to help stand by your side.

  1. Oh thank ya’ll so much. Before I began my research today and saw this site I was intuitively led to file a lawsuit against this televangelist and am going to file it this week. I am so empowered and educated myself now about narcs and I will come back and post updates about my lawsuit against this “Judas Narc”.

    1. Great that you found this informative.

      BE VERY CAREFUL with the “communal narcs” what you call these “Judas narc” (good name).

      They know how to play the “holier than thou” facade!

      I Look forward to hearing how things go for you!

  2. Please contact me asap about more websites and help on a lawsuit without using a lawyer. My narcissist slandered my name and my reputation as a well respected policewoman and ruined my background to get hired by a different police department. Please help. Thank you. Deena.
