Does Workers' Compensation Cover Ptsd?

Post-traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD, is a very real condition that can develop after an individual has gone through an extremely traumatic experience. While commonly seen in military personnel returning from war, PTSD can affect individuals in all types of workplace scenarios. Firefighters, police officers, first responders, construction workers and others who go through life-threatening or personally traumatic experiences while on the job are usually more susceptible to experiencing the symptoms of PTSD.

Those who suffer from PTSD may find it difficult, if not impossible, to work or function in society due to constantly "reliving" the traumatic event, being surrounded by reminders of the event or experienced a heightened level of anxiety and emotional distress. If you are suffering from PTSD as a result of a workplace accident, injury or other traumatic event, you may be eligible to receive vital assistance from a physician experienced with treating PTSD by filing a claim with workers' compensation. Claims of mental stress are not always easy to prove.

Hiring an experienced workers' comp attorney to help you document and prepare your claim will give you a much improved chance of receiving the benefits you deserve. Our attorneys are well aware of the information which must be provided in these types of situations. We also recognize that claims which are inaccurately presented will be more likely to be denied, thus leaving you to suffer on your own. Do not put your workers' compensation benefits at risk when a Phoenix workers' compensation attorney is ready to help you fight for your rights.
