    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Esther Rantzen

    Are injuries in the workplace only physical?

    At Accident Advice Helpline, we’ve been dealing with claims for compensation in all areas of personal injury compensation for over a decade now. In that time, we’ve helped many people who’ve suffered an accident at work to get the compensation they deserve. Quite often there is a false assumption that injuries in the workplace are only physical. This does not take into account the psychological trauma and mental anguish suffered by many of those who have been injured in the workplace and weren’t to blame.


    One of the biggest non-physical injuries that can occur in the workplace is work-related stress. Stress is extremely harmful and can have emotional effects, causing depression and lethargy. Stress is a double-edged sword in that it can not only result in emotional trauma but can also manifest itself as physical symptoms, such as weight loss, weight gain, sleeplessness and a host of other symptoms.

    Emotional trauma

    Emotional trauma can occur as the result of a severe accident in the workplace. Emotional trauma may be caused by having flashbacks to the pain and suffering of an accident. This is compounded by the fact that the accident happened in your workplace, a place which you have travel to on a daily basis and on which your livelihood depends. Reliving a workplace accident can be a horrific experience and serves only to worsen the physical injuries which you have already suffered.


    Many people may have feelings of anxiety upon returning to work after an accident. For this reason, many people choose not to pursue a claim for compensation as they may fear being stigmatised by their colleagues or may fear being forced out of their job for being a liability. Nothing could be further from the truth. Your employer has a duty of care to you and your well-being and you shouldn’t have to feel anxious about your job security for being involved in an accident in which you weren’t to blame.

    Claiming compensation for injuries in the workplace

    If you’ve been injured as the result of an accident in your workplace and you weren’t to blame, contact us on 0800 689 0500 to find out how you could be entitled to make a claim for work accident compensation. A claim for compensation won’t ease the trauma and pain you’ve suffered as the result of your accident, but can help to lessen the financial burden that arises as the result of an unforeseen accident.
