What is workplace psychological trauma?

Not all workplace injuries are physical. Sometimes, events occur as a result of work that have a lasting impact on your psychological, emotional and physical wellbeing. Symptoms of trauma typically include stress, anxiety, depression, guilt, and anger, as well as fatigue, disorientation, poor concentration and social withdrawal.

These kinds of injuries can affect your ability to work effectively, or at all, and can lead to lost income and other expenses, such as payments for medical and psychological treatments. That's why you should receive the compensation that you deserve.

It doesn't matter whose fault it is—if you've been psychologically damaged as a result of work, you may be able to make a compensation claim through the workers' compensation body in your state.
