Coping with psychological trauma

Iowa workers who suffer on-the-job physical injuries also are at risk for suffering psychological injuries due to the trauma of the accident. The American Psychological Association defines psychological trauma as an emotional response to a terrible event, including an accident. Shock and denial are typical emotional responses immediately after the accident, but many people have long-term reactions as well, such as flashbacks, thought and behavior pattern changes, intense and/or unpredictable feelings, strained relationships with family or friends, even chest pain, headaches, nausea and other stress-related physical symptoms.

What is an occupational disease?

If you are an Iowa worker, you may have questions about what constitutes an occupational disease. Chapter 85A of the Iowa Code covers occupational disease compensation, and Section 85A.8 defines occupational diseases as those which arise during the course of your employment.

When Iowa workers like you get hurt on the job, you may take care of the physical ailments without stopping to consider how heavy the emotional toll may be. We at the Law Offices of Gallner & Pattermann, PC, provide you with more insight into the psychological injuries that can occur at work.
