What Happens When A Traumatic Event At Work Leads To Stress Injuries?
Stress from a traumatic event at work can be as debilitating as a physical injury. Unfortunately, employers often deny workers’ compensation benefits for stress-related health conditions.
If your workers’ compensation claim has been denied for any reason, contact Marzzacco Niven & Associates, in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, for a free case evaluation. We’re raising a voice as we represent workers who suffer from all types of work-related injuries and health conditions, including stress.
When Is Stress Covered By Workers’ Compensation?
Everybody deals with a certain amount of stress at work. However, certain events go far beyond the level of stress that a worker ordinarily encounters on the job. Examples include:
- Being assaulted by a customer or co-worker.
- Witnessing a fatal accident.
- Witnessing a murder.
- Witnessing a devastating injury, such as an amputation.
- Being the victim of a robbery.
Our lawyers represent emergency responders, truck drivers, store clerks, nurses, and other types of workers who have suffered a debilitating health condition caused by work-related stress. Our goal is to help you obtain the counseling services and lost wage benefits you need to recover.
