What causes stress related claims?
The causes of stress are as individual as the people who suffer from it, and if Accident Advice Helpline handles your personal injury claim for stress then they will be treating you as an individual and considering the particular circumstances that caused stress in your work place. They will be seeking to show that your employer should have put procedures in place to reduce the levels of stress.
There are, however, some common themes that re-occur over and over again in personal injury stress cases and they are:
- Workload – this may take the form of deadlines which are too tight, too high a volume of work, too much pressure or too much responsibility
- Lack of managerial support – if workers feel supported by their managers then they are less likely to suffer from stress.
- Violence, threats and bullying.
