    Work Related Injury

    You are not mad, stress is a Work Related Injury

    The stigma around people and whether they are sane has been at the heart of our society for centuries. Although we have moved away from the medical model to the social model for the treatment of mental health issues, there is still some way to go with stress at work being diagnosed as a work related injury.

    Stress has just become part of life; we are even told by some quarters that it is good for us, and whilst a certain amount of tension may stimulate something in us to press on and overcome a certain challenge we face, for some they are ridiculed, made to feel inferior because of their lack of ability to ‘handle a bit of stress’. This stone wall attitude and failure by employers to recognise stress as a work related injury is wrong and whilst your employer may refuse to recognise this, the law does not. Of course to prove this you may need some assistance, and companies like Accident Advice Helpline may be able to point you in the right direction.

    Inherent in society is the Victorian idea, that anything other than a stiff upper lip and an attitude of forging on, no matter the consequences, is a form of madness and has led to countless thousands of people trying to cope, not wishing to seek help for fear of being stigmatised by society. There is good news at hand, you are not mad and you are not alone, stress is real and if circumstances are not resolved, they could lead to a work related injury that has a far reaching effect on your life. Maybe you feel it is too late and the situation has passed; you have changed job or moved organisation and the injury you have sustained you will just have to live with. You may have been on the receiving end of injustice, but hope is not lost.

    Specialist companies with unique knowledge of bringing perpetrators to justice, companies like Accident Advice Helpline can help, with many legal partners whose specialist knowledge can make sure you are compensated for the damage that may have been inflicted on you. They are sympathetic and have dealt with thousands of people just like you. A 30 second telephone call can start the ball rolling. Their advice is without obligation, professional and non judgemental.

    In the modern work place, we achieve in one week what took the Victorians one year to achieve. An interesting thought considering the Victorians are attributed with some of the most radical work reforms ever. Is it any wonder people are under stress? Prolonged pressure like this will result in a work related injury; there is no doubt. The question is, are you going to just continue and let you employer get away with it? A 30 second phone call could change your life forever.
