Can I Seek Workers’ Comp Benefits For Psychological Injuries?
With work-related stress levels on the rise, it is not uncommon for employees and executives to suffer from mental or psychological injuries during the course of doing their job. Physical injuries sustained on the job can also lead to post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and other mental health, psychiatric or psychological conditions which may make an individual eligible to seek workers’ comp benefits. To obtain benefits for these types of injuries you must be able to prove that a clear connection exists between a specific, traumatic event or accident that occurred while you were on the job and the psychological injuries you are now experiencing. Proving this type of claim will not come easy and these types of claims are often denies, particularly when you are not being represented by a skilled workers’ comp attorney.
