Some people can suffer psychological damage as a result of experiencing an accident at work.
Claims for psychiatric personal injury can include diagnoses of anxiety, depression, post traumatic stress disorder or chronic pain syndrome. The severity of the psychological symptoms can affect the person's ability to work, their relationship with family and friends and the extent to which they lead their lives outside the working environment.
In a claim for psychiatric personal injury, the employer is deemed to take the injured employee as they find them and a predisposition to a psychiatric injury or an exacerbation of a pre-existing condition does necessarily preclude a successful claim for damages.
This means that if you already have an injury before your accident, your employer will still be liable to you for damages if it is his fault that the same injury was worsened, and cannot get out of this by saying that you were already “damaged”.
