WorkCover stress claims for compensation

If you are suffering severe stress in the workplace, you may be able to claim compensation depending on your circumstances and the facts of your particular situation.

Stress claims for compensation can be extremely challenging to litigate against and there are many legal requirements that need to be satisfied in order for the client to have a viable case. In order to submit a WorkCover claim for stress, it’s necessary for your legal team to demonstrate that you have suffered an ‘injury’ within the meaning of the WorkCover legislation. This means you cannot typically claim for experiencing stress as an emotion, but rather, you are suffering from a clinical medical condition.

How stress claim compensation gets calculated

Depending on the nature of your stress claim, a monetary value is usually placed on the gap between your predicted life path before the stress condition, and your actual life path since.
