Physical And Mental Injuries
Stress can manifest itself in a variety of physical forms, including hypertension, heart conditions, aggravated diabetes and many other ways. These bodily injuries are a real demonstration of excessive stress, and whether or not they were a result of ongoing circumstances, or a discrete traumatic event, you may have a claim for workers’ compensation.
Similarly, excessive stress can lead to mental or psychological injury as well. Stress and harassment can impede your emotional, behavioral or mental condition to the point where it has a significant impact on your day-to-day life. Conditions such as depression and anxiety are commonly affiliated with these types of situations.
The state of California recognizes these conditions under workers’ compensation law, and it is worth securing an attorney who is committed to helping you pursue your claim, as often these types of claims are overly scrutinized by the insurance company.
Burden Of Proof
It is especially important to have the help of a lawyer when filing a stress-related workers’ compensation claim precisely because the burden of proof for these cases can be demanding. An inexperienced attorney or other individual is not likely to achieve success without the help of a specialist.
