Stress Injury on the Job
When a person refers to work injury, they are often talking about accidents that cause immediate harm, like tripping and falling or construction accidents. However, work injuries encompass many types of harmful grievances. Some of these are stress-related injuries that are caused over a period of time. These stress-related injuries are extremely serious and pose dangerous and fatalistic risks for victims.
Common Job-Related Stress Injuries
Long-term, stress-related injuries are slow to develop, and the lawsuits surrounding them are more complicated than most. If you are exposed to stressful work conditions over a long period of time, you may be at risk for certain injuries, including:
- Heart attack
- Repetitive stress injuries
- Psychiatric injuries
- Post traumatic stress disorders (PTSDs)
Serious stress that is accumulated from years of working at a stressful job is most commonly a cause of things like:
- Catastrophic accidents
- Assault and battery
- Sexual abuse or rape
- Loss of a loved one
If you became a victim of one of these life-altering incidents due to the negligence or wrongful doing of another, you have a right to fight back for your rights. Job-related stress is a problem that plagues thousands of Americans who deserve to stand up and receive compensation for their pain and suffering. By speaking to one of our stress injury lawyers and work injury attorneys, you could be taking the first step to getting the compensation and justice you need to recover from your painful experience.
