Preparing for trial
Issues in workers’ compensation cases can be involved and require extensive development of both factual and legal evidence. Here Tracy is putting her heart and soul into getting ready for a trial. In this case, the very factually and legally complicated issue of, “when does mental stress which causes physical injury become work related”. The courts have held that in certain situations mental stress, which causes physical injury, is work related, such as, the mentally stressful job which causes a heart attack is work related. The courts have held though that mental stress which causes a mental break down is not generally work related.
