Stress/PTSD Claim

San Diego Stress/PTSD Claim Lawyer

Numerous reputable studies have confirmed that occupational pressures and fears are the leading source of stress for workers across the nation. According to the CDC, 40 percent of workers feel their job is very or extremely stressful. Now more than ever, workers strongly associate problems at work with health complaints (even more than financial issues or family problems). Some of the main causes of work-related stress, include:

  • Workload
  • People issues
  • Juggling work and personal life
  • Lack of job security.

An employee who suffers severe occupational stress may be able to file a claim to collect stress-related damages. The stress/PTSD claim attorneys in Los Angeles at the Mitchell Law Corporation have years of experience handling challenging claims and can assist you in your quest for justice.

Warning Signs of Job Stress

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

After experiencing a life-threatening or traumatic event, such as a car accident, motorcycle accident, construction site accident or truck accident, it is not uncommon for individuals to experience trouble sleeping, increased “jumpiness,” or frequent flashbacks of the disturbing event. For most, these feelings and memories lessen over time, but for some, these symptoms only get worse. Individuals who experience symptoms for more than four weeks or find that the symptoms are interfering with home and work life may have Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

The symptoms of PTSD are:

Negative changes in emotions or beliefs
In an effort to avoid memories of the event, some PTSD sufferers may not show interest in activities they enjoyed before the incident occurred. Changes in the way a PTSD patient views himself or herself may occur and feelings of fear, guilt, and shame may be prevalent.

Always on the lookout
PTSD patients may always be on the lookout for danger or feel jittery, jumpy or alert. This symptom may cause a victim to have trouble sleeping or concentrating.

Avoiding memories of the event
PTSD sufferers may try to avoid any situations or people who trigger memories of the event.

Reliving the event
For PTSD patients, frequent flashbacks of the traumatic event or nightmares about the event may not subside.
