Compassionate Lawyers For Workplace Anxiety And Stress Injuries

The pressures of any job can produce stress and anxiety for workers throughout Massachusetts. Emotional stress injuries can result in excessive anxiety attacks, psychological disorders and depression. Some emotional stress disorders can cause total disability for a worker.

Emotional And Psychological Health Injuries In Massachusetts

Under Massachusetts law, disabling emotional and psychological health problems caused by an excessive and abnormal event (or series of events) may be compensable through workers' compensation. These claims follow a different standard than most workers' comp matters. For instance, investigations into alleged employee misconduct or disciplinary matters in the workplace supported by a bone fide personnel decision receive protection under the workers' compensation laws. If you have suffered mental or emotional injuries in the workplace, the lawyer you choose to represent you can make a substantial difference in the outcome of your workers' compensation claim.

Dedicated Workers' Comp Guidance And Representation

The attorneys at the Law Office of Colonna & Doyle in Lynnfield represent workers who are suffering from stress, anxiety or depression caused by a stressful and abusive event in the workplace. The law requires a worker to prove that a specific abusive event is the predominant cause of an emotional or psychological injury. Normal employee discipline or personnel decisions, such as demotions, transfers or discharges of workers, that cause anxiety will not support a workers' compensation claim.

If you have been subjected to the intentional infliction of emotional stress in the workplace due to excessive bullying or a traumatic event leading to emotional harm (including post-traumatic stress disorder), we urge you to contact the compassionate lawyers at Colonna & Doyle for a case evaluation. Workers who have suffered serious workplace injuries that have resulted in anxiety or depression may also qualify for additional mental health benefits in a workers' compensation claim.
