Sometimes, a workplace accident or injury is so devastating that it affects
the victim in more ways than one. Depending on the circumstances of your
on the job injury, you may be suffering from a far more than just physical
consequences. In fact, the majority of injured employees experience some
sort of mental or emotional difficulty in the aftermath of what they have
endured. Depression is extremely common for injured employees, especially
depending on the severity of the trauma associated with the incident.
The state of California protects injured workers across a wide range of
injuries, including depression and other forms of mental anguish. However,
proving the source and extent of your injury can prove quite complicated.
While depression and anxiety were once accepted as intangible and unimportant,
the law has changed with the times and now recognizes just how debilitating
these injuries can be. Unfortunately, depression is extremely common in
people dealing with traumatic or unexpected injuries resulting in chronic
pain and disability. Injured employees who are bedridden or unable to
earn a living wage are prime examples of legitimate psychological injury
While you may have to fight harder to prove the authenticity of your depression
or anxiety, it can be done.
