Accident Advice Helpline help people to launch personal injury claims when they have become unduly stressed due to their occupation. Stress may not at first sound much like an injury, and to be fair it really should be classified as an illness, and a psychological illness at that. But in terms of compensation, (and given the right circumstances, stress is something that you can claim compensation for), you need to use an injury solicitor to handle your claim. Talk to us today if you’ve been hurt at work in South Lanarkshire due to no fault of your own.
Have you been hurt at work in South Lanarkshire?
Stress is something that doesn’t go away on its own. Not unless the source of the stress is removed, and people who find themselves under work related stress, only get worse when other influences outside of work add to their stress.
South Lanarkshire Council relieves stress
News that South Lanarkshire Council have decided to write off £2.7 million worth of debt owed to them by residents and local businesses will come as welcome news to those who suffer from work related stress. It is one less thing to add to their stress burdens.
Stress in the workplace
In order to qualify for stress compensation you will need to show that your employer has caused your stress by unfair pressure being exerted, ridiculously tight deadlines being imposed, and/or perhaps being bullied by bosses too.
The symptoms of stress induced panic or anxiety attacks
Stress can manifest itself in many ways. One of the most overt is when it brings on panic attacks or anxiety attacks. The symptoms of these types of attacks are physical, and very real. Shortness of breath, chest pains and pains in the right arm are the most common symptoms. As you may have already surmised, these are the same symptoms as having a heart attack and indeed are frequently mistaken as such.
Obtaining medical proof of stress
Medical proof is always quite difficult to obtain with this sort of condition so panic attacks can help from a diagnostic point of view. You can get your GP to verify your condition and give you a report you can pass onto your solicitor.
