Stress can be a serious medical condition
Stress and pressure are everywhere in daily life, from getting the children to school on time (and you making it to your workplace on time too!), to meeting any targets or goals you have in your employment. Some people face an enormous amount of pressure and stress and seem to handle it well.
But, occasionally, our coping mechanisms become overloaded, resulting in our emotional and mental health being compromised. We effectively ‘grind to a halt’; every day tasks that were once simple and straightforward, can now present huge challenges.
Unacceptable levels of stress can be exacerbated by unreasonable demands at work. Harassment and bullying in the workplace can not only cause stress but also lead to long term damage to our mental health. If you feel that this has happened or is happening to you, call Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500; we have a specialist legal team, such as our expert injury solicitors in Carmichael, waiting to help you.
Sounds serious making a compensation claim…
Yes, we understand this and, at a time when you are far from feeling yourself, it seems odd to think of you voluntarily entering into a situation that will see you make a claim against your employer. Our empathetic and sensitive advisers, along with your expert injury solicitors in Carmichael will talk you through the process:
Constructing your case
This will take time and energy but your expert injury solicitors in Carmichael will need to build a detailed case that points out which parts of Health and Safety in the Workplace laws as well as any other laws, such as discrimination laws, may have been compromised. To claim personal injury compensation for this extreme level of stress, bullying and harassment needs a solid base in law.
Bringing your case
Once your case is ready, your expert injury solicitors in Carmichael will take it forward on your behalf, keeping you informed every step of the way. They will claim compensation for the ‘injury’ itself, as well as the impact on your life and for any other costs you feel have been an additional extra as a result of this injury.
Changing workplace practice
It might be that there needs to be change in the workplace and compensation cases are well-known for forcing change FOR THE BETTER in many workplaces across the country. Whilst this may not be your number one target, surely knowing that this type of stress and impact can now be prevented in the future from happening to anyone else is a welcome by-product.
Not sure claiming compensation is the right thing to do? Talking to one of our advisers here at Accident Advice Helpline does not commit you to anything; they will only pass your details to one of our in-house expert injury solicitors in Carmichael on your instruction. Call us on 0800 689 0500 at a time that suits you!
