Can You Receive Workers’ Compensation For Post-Traumatic Stress?

If you have personally experienced, witnessed or been confronted with a traumatic event in the workplace, you may be entitled to workers' compensation benefits for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). PTSD is a serious and debilitating mental health condition which deeply affects the injured worker and requires significant medical care and legal consultation. Arizona's law enforcement, construction and industrial workers often experience traumatic events which lead to post-traumatic stress disorder.

Professional Representation Is Vital For PTSD Claims

Workers' compensation claims for this condition are extremely complex due to the variety of standards and proof issues. Many employers and insurance companies do not understand the laws and can often lead you astray with misinformation. In defending the claim, there must be proper diagnosis with medical testimony from a licensed psychiatrist or psychologist.
