Compensation claim and occupational stress
All of us feel overwhelmed at times, it’s part of the price we pay for the lives we lead. However, no one should feel completely overwhelmed all the time and believe it’s all getting too much for them.
If you feel like this specifically when at work then you might be suffering from a condition known as occupational stress. If so, then you might be able to use the services of an expert solicitor in Heybridge to make a claim for compensation.
Who is at risk?
The fact is any of us could be at risk of developing occupational stress; however, some employees are more susceptible than others. This said it can often be difficult for employees to know who is more at risk than others. It’s not something that can be seen on the surface like a physical condition.
Employers have a duty of care and a legal responsibility to do all they can to minimise the levels of stress placed upon employees. Equally, when large amounts of stress exist within the work place they should do all they can to ensure that employees have access to coping mechanisms and someone to talk to about their concerns if they are struggling.
If an employer fails in this duty then a solicitor in Heybridge may be able to make a claim for compensation against them on your behalf.Open Claim Calculator

In such an instance an expert solicitor in Heybridge is likely to be able to effectively argue that they have failed in their duty of care to protect you from harm.
