• Throughout the course of our working lives, it is common to feel pressure or stress on occasion and managed well should be a temporary feeling. However, certain situations can lead to high levels of workplace stress, and this can significantly impact an employee’s health and wellbeing. In some severe cases this may result in psychiatric injury.

    At Brachers, we are experienced in helping establish the level of workplace stress that an employee may have been under, the types of stress, longevity and additional pressures that may have impacted them. We also understand the knock-on practical and emotional effects that this may have on their lives.

    Our dedicated team are experienced in handling stress at work claims on a no win, no fee basis and at our first meeting we will assess whether your claim is robust enough to proceed with. We deal with a wide range of claims from excessive workloads to employees feeling a lack of support and care, to those who have suffered assaults, bullying or harassment.

    How we can help with stress at work claims

    While each claim will be decided on facts, there is established criteria which must be met when bringing a claim for stress at work. We will carry out a thorough investigation covering all of these criteria including your psychiatric illness diagnosis, how your employer may have breached their duty of care, your work environment and any foreseeable risks during your employment that could have caused you harm.

    In stress at work claims, we aim to assess the need for rehabilitation treatment at the earliest opportunity and ensure funding is secured from the defendant for further treatment. We are proud of the work that we do to ensure victims get the treatment and compensation they need and deserve.

    As a full service law firm, we work closely with specialists from other teams at Brachers where necessary to ensure that you get the most comprehensive advice and service possible. If applicable, we can also discuss your claim with our employment law specialists, particularly if legal issues have arisen following your injury from work related stress.
