    Can I claim for emotional suffering and pain?


    Emotional suffering and pain can be a major consequence of the injury sustained from such incidents as an accident at work. This type of pain can linger long after the physical injuries have recovered and can severely affect your life.

    So can compensation be sought for emotional suffering?

    The simple answer is yes it can in some circumstances. These emotional work injuries can vary from grief, distress and anxiety to depression, amongst many others. These can all be included in your accident at work claim if it has affected your life and especially if it has resulted in financial loss if you have had to take time off work.

    How do emotional work injuries occur?

    If you have had an accident at work that has meant you have had to have hospital treatment and perhaps even time off for recovery this can be a stressful time for those involved. Not only is there the stress of losing money but also the anxiety of having to take time off work for your work injury can cause you to feel isolated and could potentially lead to such mental health illnesses as depression.

    If you have sustained a work injury whether physical, emotional or both within the last three years that was no fault of your own you may be able to make an accident at work claim.
