Common Reason for Stress-Related Workplace Injuries

With the unpredictable economy, worker shortages, and technological advancements, today’s workers have more to worry about than ever. Stress-related workplace injuries can occur due to various factors, including:

  • Excessive Workload
  • Lack of Training and Resources
  • Bullying and Harassment
  • Job Insecurity
  • Long Hours and Overtime
  • Discrimination

All the issues above are very real and many workers in California face them. If these cause serious stress-related injuries, you may be eligible for workers’ compensation benefits.

Proving a Work-Related Stress Workers’ Compensation Claim

Identifying stress-related workplace injuries involves recognizing symptoms of stress like anxiety, depression, anger, irritability, frequent illnesses, lack of sleep, and high blood pressure, among others. However, proving a stress-related workers’ compensation claim in California can be tricky.

To qualify for workers’ comp benefits for a stress-related or purely psychological injury, the worker must satisfy additional requirements, including the following:

  • The worker suffers from a specific psychiatric condition outlined in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-V).
  • The worker can show the actual circumstances of their employment “predominantly” led to the identified psychiatric condition.
  • Personnel actions taken in good faith are not the cause of the condition.
  • The process of litigation itself did not cause the condition.
  • As a result of the condition, the worker has required medical treatment or experienced disability.

Our work injury lawyers can assess your case and help you determine the best route to obtain compensation.

What Damages Can You Seek in a Stress-Related Workplace Injury Case?

When pursuing a stress-related workplace injury case, you may be eligible to seek compensation for:

  • Medical Costs
  • Temporary disability benefits while you’re off work.
  • Permanent disability benefits.
  • Educational Voucher for schooling.

When you hire us as your stress-related workplace injury lawyer in Southern California, we will utilize our decades of experience to prepare the strongest possible argument for you to receive fair compensation.
