Workers Compensation – Compensation for psychological injuries from workplace
Workers Compensation – confidential settlement amount
Janette was subjected to severe overworking, bullying, intimidation, and verbal abuse in her workplace. She became medically retired and declared permanently unfit to work. We ran a successful Workers Compensation claim for her, proving that her employer had been negligent in looking after her in the workplace.
Our Workers Compensation Team won Janette a substantial settlement. We respect Janette’s request that the amount remain confidential, though we are happy to say that Janette was delighted with the outcome and the sensitive way she was looked after by the team.

Janette tried to remedy her hostile and unsupportive workplace environment but was consistently treated poorly until she developed serious and permanent psychological injuries.
To prove her employer’s negligence, we had to establish that Janette’s injuries exceeded the restrictive threshold for bringing a Work Injury Damages claim. Next, a formal claim was brought on the Workers Compensation insurer. Based upon the strength of the medical evidence that we were able to get from an expert psychiatrist, we proved that Janette’s psychological injuries would not have developed if her employer reacted to the situation differently.
The insurer accepted Janette’s claim and awarded her substantial compensation.
