Near Miss Claim

Crushendo defines this key bar prep and torts term.

What does near miss claim mean?

near miss claim – This is a type of negligent infliction of emotional distress claim where plaintiffs can recover for emotional damages if they were in the “zone of danger”—close enough to reasonably fear physical injury because of the negligence—and they experienced subsequent physical symptoms of distress (like panic attacks, depression, miscarriages, and so on).
