Obtaining Workers’ Compensation For Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
The true effects of a work-related injury can linger long after the physical trauma has healed. If you are suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) due to a work injury, a knowledgeable workers’ compensation attorney can help you obtain the benefits you need to protect your quality of life.
Your PTSD is real, and we know it. At Fishman & Fishman, LLC, we know that the inability to carry out your daily activities due to your injury can be overwhelming. If you are suffering from PTSD, depression, anxiety or similar emotional or mental disorder after a workplace injury, we can help. Our firm provides advocacy and guidance to individuals seeking workers’ compensation benefits for their work-related PTSD.
You Are Not Alone If You Were Traumatized By A Workplace Accident
It may feel like you are isolated in your despair, but you are not alone. Many injured workers suffer from PTSD and other issues after a work injury. It is completely understandable. Going from the daily routine with which you were comfortable to the state of being out of work and in pain is a drastic change.
Having to deal with the aftermath of a traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, broken bones or other life-changing injuries is physically difficult. Many workplaces are now beginning to recognize the mental and emotional strain and issues that injuries suffered on the job can have.
The insurance companies do not help. They try to downplay the effects of psychological overlays from an injury in order to limit benefits and compensation. We will be your strongest advocate in making sure you have the resources you need to get better and move forward with your life.
