Stress Claim Attorney

If you get a workplace injury, you may be eligible for workers’ compensation to help with your medical bills and other expenditures. Psychiatric/Stress claims get highly scrutinized. Due to previous abuses in the Worker’s Compensation system, the laws get changed to require a higher threshold of proof. You must have been employed with the employer for at least six months unless the injury got caused by a sudden and extraordinary condition or violent act. Workplace stress must account for the majority of the cause of the damage.

A Worker’s Compensation lawyer is required to file an emotional stress claim. If you get a workplace injury, you may file a claim for work injury benefits through your employer’s insurance provider. These benefits may get used to paying for prosthetic, prescription drugs, medical appointments, and other required treatments.

 

Proving That Stress or Anxiety Is Work-Related
  1. The working conditions must be objectively stressful;
  2. The believable evidence must support a finding that the worker reacted to the conditions as stressful;
  3. The objectively stressful working conditions must be “peculiar” to the particular workplace.
The short answer to this question is yes, you can claim personal injury compensation for stress at work. More precisely, for the health problems it causes. However, you can only do so if the stress-related illness is severe enough to warrant making a claim and a medical diagnosis has been made.
Typically, emotional distress claims are very complex in nature, generally due to the lack of physical evidence compared to other abuse claims. That said, emotional stress can be very damaging, and cases can be made to ensure the victim receives damages and a reprieve from this treatment.
So, yes you can sue your employer for workplace stress under certain circumstances. Generally, if the stress is due to ordinary workplace incidents such as a demanding supervisor, long hours, or difficult co-workers, you can bring a work-induced stress claim to the worker’s compensation system.
