In recent research that was carried out by a charity providing support to those with mental health problems it was found that work is more stressful than both financial and health problems, with thirty-four per cent of people saying that they encountered stress at work. If you or someone close to you has suffered from or is currently suffering stress at work then it is important to contact Bristol personal injury claims solicitors** in order to discuss whether or not any compensation is payable. Stress at work claims arises as a result of employees being put under more pressure than they can cope with.

Make a Claim for Sress at Work

In order to attempt to stop such situations arising, the Health and Safety Executive has introduced standards that organisations should put in place to ensure that workers are being correctly managed and the risk of stress at work is mitigated. If Bristol stress at work legal experts can show that the employer has been negligent then a stress at work claim can arise and it is likely that compensation will be awarded. However, it is important to note that employees cannot use relevant legislation directly and therefore it is important to speak to a Bristol specialist as they can explain the legal procedure.

Factors that can Cause Stress

Stress at work claims may be caused by a number of factors, including being given disciplinary warnings, as a result of bullying or harassment, victimisation, an increase in workload, upcoming deadlines, pressure to meet certain targets, changes in procedure and a change in the reporting line. As well as immediate physical symptoms such as loss of appetite, headache and chest pain and the emotional symptoms such as depression and agitation, there are several longer lasting injuries including depression, loss of energy and even suicidal thoughts. It is clear that stress at work is no less severe than other types of personal injury and it is therefore important to speak to a Bristol expert as soon as possible.
