Litigation Stress - Stressful for All

The inherent nature of litigation is stressful - for those pursuing or defending themselves against litigation. And it certainly can be for the lawyers too.

Here's an article that takes a rather unique view on the stress felt by all parties involved.

Some of the key problems with justice identified here include:

  • Everyday legal problems have several associated costs. Nearly 18% of people who reported having a legal problem experienced stress or emotional difficulty as a direct consequence of having that problem.
  • The percentage of respondents reporting they experienced a physical health problem as a result of the legal problem increased from 39.1% for people 18-35 years of age to 61.5% for individuals aged 55-64
  • Women were more likely than men to identify a physical health problem as a direct result of a legal problem; 67.1% of women compared with 53.2% of men.
