Is the stress of the compensation process contributing to a rise in secondary psychological claims and do workers lodge more work-related stress claims due to perceived injustices and how do we define and manage stress disorders that don’t fit any psychiatric diagnoses? This presentation explores, from both a legal and a practical perspective, the effects of ongoing compensation claims on the recovery of injured workers and the concept of ‘chronic embitterment’. It will also consider how to avoid the pitfalls these issues can create.
