What is a Workers' Compensation Claim for Stress?
Psychiatric stress claims can result in compensation from your employer, even if they are difficult to substantiate. We must establish the following to construct a successful argument:
- A physician diagnosed you with a mental condition that causes disability or the need for medical treatment
- This company has employed you for at least six months
- Your injuries were more likely than not caused by the work environment
A HEAVY PROOF BURDEN
Workers’ compensation claims for mental stress are evaluated more rigorously than any other claim. These mental illnesses frequently lack observable symptoms and rely primarily on the employee’s testimony.
To be eligible for stress claim compensation, we must show that your mental disability was caused by your workplace conditions at least 51 per cent of the time. You’ll have to show that most of this harmful stress has nothing to do with your personal life, so be ready to provide personal information.
Did you know that chronically high levels of mental stress might result in long-term psychological damage? Did you also know that if you have stress-related health difficulties due to your unfavourable work environment, you may be eligible for workers’ compensation benefits? RP Law Group has been representing California employees with legitimate stress claims for nearly two decades.
