Stress-related Penarth personal injury claims
When people think of individuals making Penarth personal injury claims they tend to assume it is for a serious physical injury, such as a broken leg or even an amputation. Of course, these are not the only reasons for making Penarth personal injury claims. Individuals may receive injuries such as whiplash, concussion or even serious bruising or tissue damage.
What many people don’t realise when it comes to Penarth personal injury claims is that you can also claim for emotional or psychological conditions as well if someone else found to be liable for them.
Work place stress
One of the most common forms of psychological Penarth personal injury claims involves stress within the work place. Stress itself is not actually a condition, it is purely a state. And for most of us experiencing it it is usually a temporary one. However, if left untreated and dealt with then there is a possibility of additional psychological conditions developing including psychosomatic illnesses, insomnia and anxiety. General health can start to become affected with individuals reporting increased blood pressure and weight loss or gain.
Here at Accident Advice Helpline we have seen a rise in the number of stress related cases that our Penarth personal injury claims solicitors are working on. More and more of our clients are reporting that they have been put under undue pressure at work, and despite raising concerns to their managers or employers about their ability to cope, they have been ignored and the pressure has continued.
It is this failure on the part of employers to offer guidance and support to employees who have raised concerns that makes them liable for the Penarth personal injury claims being made against them.
Our solicitor says “Employers have a duty of care to the people who work for this. This relates to their safety in general but also their mental and emotional wellbeing. An employer must do all that is reasonable to ensure that staff are well and able to complete their tasks. Ignoring psychological issues such as stress is a breach of this care.”
