First off, find out if your state covers Workers Compensation stress-related claims. Second, you may want to ask yourself these questions first before filing a claim: (1) Was the worry over the ordinary level for the position? (2) Would it be able to be demonstrated that the reason for your stress was principally work-related? (3) Has the stress brought about perpetual hindrance?

If you answer yes to all of these questions, then you may be able to file for work-related stress compensation. On the contrary, demonstrating your case will be difficult and stressful. Unlike a broken arm or leg, or loss of an organ, stress-related claims are psychological in nature and will require a higher standard of proof.

Regardless of what work you are in, there are levels of pressure, which are taken care of diversely by every person. Stress is a characteristic response that every one of us encounters from being in circumstances that reason uplifted levels of tension, now and again bringing about mental misery, which can prompt passionate breakdowns and in rare cases, physical indications. At times pressure can bring about permanent impairment, which may be compensable under the Workers Compensation laws of your state.
