Stress can often be the result of a toxic work environment, workplace violence, or trauma experienced in the workplace. You may be entitled to a workers compensation claim if your ongoing stress was not present before the job, but is instead a result of problems within the job, the job's expectations, or your workplace environment. Determining the stress can be done by a medical professional who can attest that your stress, and any psychiatric stress associated, was not present in other settings before your job, only those related to the job itself.
A pre-existing condition is usually classified as a chronic or long-term condition of some sort that has gradually worsened or become aggravated with the job you’re currently in. The same can also be true if you have a pre-existing condition and are the victim of a personal injury due to negligence or care for your pre-existing condition. Depending on the case itself, we’ll work with you to determine what legal measures can be taken and what compensation you deserve in return.

Well, sometimes an injury could be the result of a co-worker or outsider committing an act of violence towards you that causes severe injury, emotional distress or even a fatality.
In most cases, when two workers get in a physical altercation and there are medical expenses as a result, compensation insurance should cover the treatment & recovery including lost wages as a result of the incident.
Sometimes, the injury isn't inflicted by a co-worker, rather a more personal attack. Something like a man walking into a workplace and attacking his girlfriend who is an employee.
