Stress Knows No Bounds


Technology is a beauty and a beast. It helps us communicate better and streamlines work that would another wise take too long. It’s a beast because it means that we are committed to our work 24/7. Email checking, instant messaging, and uploading material to social media take a toll on a person. There’s a difference between stress at work and hurting yourself from the stress of work.

The top 10 jobs that are most stressful are compromised of desk jobs to physical jobs. The 10th job is a broadcaster, the 5th is an event coordinator, and the 1st is enlisted military personnel. What do all of these jobs have in common? Stress and responsibility. These jobs are heavily dependent on doing things for others. Whether you are reporting the news, coordinating the greatest event of someone’s life, or quite literally saving someone’s life, if you are getting hurt due to stress our stress-related injury attorneys at Law Offices of Kropach & Kropach in Los Angeles can help you with compensation for this injury.

What is stress injury?

Work injuries look very different today than they did years ago. To this day people still consider work injuries to being something very physical like a broken bone or some catastrophic event that disables permanently. People also think that it must be so extreme to file a claim with legal representation, but the truth is work-related injuries come in all shapes and sizes. With over 40 years of experience in injuries, our attorneys have seen a shift in injuries. Some are still physical, but others are more subtle, more mental.

Thankfully society is seeing that are not robots. We are humans with feelings. This means that our jobs can’t expect us to be robots either, but it often feels as if they do. Sometimes our job stresses out so much that it starts to affect us physically. Here is a  list of common ways in which your job is stressing you that can give you some serious physical ailments:

  • Workload
  • Deadlines
  • Working with negative people
  • Lack of control over work decisions
  • Feeling undervalued
  • Too many targets
  • Having to take on other people’s responsibility without compensation or recognition

The physical manifestation of stress can look like the following:

  • Headaches
  • Muscle tense, pain, and aches
  • Chest pain and rapid heartbeat
  • Insomnia
  • Nervousness and shaking
  • Teeth grinding
  • Hypertension
  • Aggravated diabetes

These physical stressors can lead to some serious time off work and can get worse over time. Workers Compensation Law, in California, recognizes these stresses really impact your life.
