Physical injuries often come to mind when most people think about claiming after an office accident in Tameside, but you might be able to make a claim for any psychological injuries you’ve sustained as a result of doing your job. If you’ve been diagnosed with any mental disorder linked to your work, there will be a chance that you might be able to make a claim for compensation. You might have been signed off work or suffered psychologically as a result of an incident at work and this could entitle you to take legal action.
Psychological injuries and claiming after an office accident in Tameside
Maybe you came down with a stress related disorder that came about after you were put under an unreasonable amount of pressure at work. If the responsibilities continued to be piled upon you despite your objections, there will be a possibility that you might be in line for a pay-out.
If you can demonstrate that your employer was negligent in failing to fulfil their duty of care towards you by ignoring the consequences of giving you more work than you could reasonably be expected to handle, you should speak with Accident Advice Helpline about your chances of making a claim.
Perhaps you were the victim of bullying or discrimination at work. If your employer failed to take action to stop either your colleagues or superiors subjecting you to this type of abuse and you were to go on to develop depression, you might be able to seek redress.
You will need to have an official medical diagnosis of your condition, but you will typically find that most doctors will be able to provide the help you need.
