you can file but the law does not classify them as a compensible work comp injury

(1) Claims based on mental conditions or mental disabilities caused by stress do not fall within the definition of an occupational disease in RCW 51.08.140.

http://apps.leg.wa.gov/WAC/default.aspx?cite=296-14-300

it is possible to have a physical injury from stress. whether it was compensible would depend on the medical evidence.
Reminder :
........Each state has their own comp system; POST YOUR STATE to get accurate information. Use the search feature to find information from similar questions.
THANKS FOR POSTING.
