What many of these workers do not realize, however, is that they may be eligible to receive workers compensation benefits for their stress or stress-related injury at work.
Stress-related Claims California To give you a better understanding of how stress-related workers compensation claims work in California, let’s review the most common reasons why your stress-based workers’ compensation claim can get dismissed by the Judge at the workers’ comp hearing.
You Cannot Prove That Your Stress is Work-related Many employers in California can easily escape liability by arguing that their employes stress-related injury was caused by factors in their personal life and/or away from work. In most cases, proving that your stress was caused by factors at work is something only an experienced stress-related injury attorney in California can do.
You Worked For The Employer Less Than 6 Months Being stressed out when you are the new guy or girl in the office is a normal thing – ask any psychologist. Unless, of course, you are being harassed or discriminated against since your very first day at work. Otherwise, California laws make you eligible to receive workers’ compensation benefits only if you have worked for the employer for at least six months.
You Suffered Psychiatric Injury In The Past If your employer is aware of your past psychiatric injury or that you have been coping with stress for a while, it may be quite difficult to obtain workers’ compensation benefits,”.
