Specialist injury solicitors in Fort William
You’re probably well aware that it’s possible to launch a personal injury claim against an employer if you were to be physically injured in an accident at work that was the fault of the company you work for. What you may not know, is that you may also be able to use the services of a specialist injury solicitors in Fort William to take action against your employer if it was responsible for you suffering some sort of psychological injury.
Work-related psychological injuries
Fortunately, for the modern worker, years of struggle from the trade unions mean that they are legally entitled to not only be protected from suffering an injury as a result of an accident that was not their fault while doing their job, but are also protected from suffering psychological injury resulting from what they do for a living. Any employee who does suffer a psychological injury as a result of their job may be able to retain specialist injury solicitors in Fort William with a view to suing her current or past employer for personal injury compensation.
If you’ve been given too much responsibility at work and have come down with some form of stress-related psychological illness, you may be able to take action against your employer, especially if you’ve made complaints about your workload in the past that didn’t get listened to.
You may also be able to take action if you’ve been on the receiving end of any bullying, harassment or discrimination in the workplace. If your fellow workers discriminate against you on the grounds of your gender, sexuality, race, religion, or anything else for that matter, you may have a case if the bullying you’ve suffered has resulted in you being diagnosed with some sort of psychological illness.
You’ll need medical evidence of the psychological illness you’ve suffered if your injury solicitor is going to stand any chance of securing you a payout. You won’t be able to go to court and say you’ve been feeling a bit down in the dumps with nothing to support this. In fact, you’ll typically need to have been diagnosed with a specific condition.
