SAN DIEGO STRESS INJURY LAWYERS
Has a Workplace Incident or Accident Caused you to Suffer from Stress Injury?
There are two general types of stress injuries. First, emotional and sometimes physical injuries caused by a demanding work environment. Second, physical injuries caused by repetitive activities.
If you work in a stressful environment that is fast-paced, demands long work hours, or pushes you to your limit each day, your workplace may be causing you severe emotional distress. In addition, increased levels of prolonged stress can cause physical injuries over time. If you work in a high stress environment and believe you have suffered stress related emotional or physical injuries you may have a qualifying workers’ compensation claim.
Another cause of stress injuries is engaging in repetitive tasks that strain your muscles and joints. If your job requires you to practice the same repetitive tasks each day, such as typing, machine work, item assembly, packaging, or lifting materials, you may experience stress injuries in one or more areas of your body. Stress injuries often cause pain, burning, swelling, soreness, stiffness, or tension in the affected areas.
