Stress can have a serious impact on your wellbeing, affecting not just your mental health but also your work, relationships and overall quality of life. While a little bit of stress is common, excessive or unrelenting stress and pressure is unhealthy, and the consequences can range from sleepless nights and anxiety to more severe outcomes like depression.
Beyond these effects on your mental health, stress can affect other areas of your life. It can make it difficult to perform well at work, put strain on your personal relationships and causes physical health issues. If you're struggling with stress issues due to someone’s actions or negligence, you may be able to claim compensation.

Generally, stress compensation claims need to be brought within three years of the date you realised your stress was caused by someone else's actions or negligence. This is somewhat different from other types of personal injury claims, as stress symptoms can sometimes take a while to become apparent.
Here are some exceptions to the standard three-year rule:
Every claim is different and takes its own time to resolve. There may be other exceptions to this rule, but this will always depend on the discretion of the courts. The sooner we get started, the stronger your case is likely to be.
We deal with the majority of our personal injury claims (which includes stress claims) on a no win, no fee basis. This means you only pay us if your case is successful and compensation is secured. A pre-agreed amount of your final compensation contributes to your legal fees.
Your wellbeing should be your main focus after experiencing stress that you believe is due to negligence. Don't underestimate the impact of stress; it's vital to consult a healthcare professional for a proper diagnosis and treatment plan.
