This paper deals with court decisions on liability claims for injuries to the mind rather than for broken bones alone. This subject now is as important to practitioners and students of the law as it long has been to medical men. Much medical knowledge is now reflected in new interpretations by the courts, so that today the legal fact is established that a person's emotional security as well as his physical security must be protected and compensated. The author's purpose is to focus attention on the developments of recent years as well as those of earlier times, and to demonstrate that interrelated injuries to the mind and to the body should be considered equally compensable.
