Post-traumatic stress and work accidents

Workers who sustain an injury on-the-job may struggle with various challenges afterward, from physical pain to financial problems (lost wages, hospital bills, and so on). However, our law firm recognizes that it is not always possible to know the full extent of the problems an injured worker will face shortly after the accident has occurred. For example, some people may sustain a head injury and not know that they suffered a traumatic brain injury, which could haunt them later on. Or, some people might develop post-traumatic stress disorder as a result of the accident.

If you are dealing with PTSD, you could be going through all sorts of challenges. For example, if your job responsibilities involved driving and you were seriously injured in a wreck, you could have post-traumatic stress that interferes with your ability to get behind the wheel. Some people do not take PTSD seriously, but this disorder can have a significant impact on the lives of injured workers. In fact, PTSD can prevent some people from ever returning to the line of work they were employed in when the accident took place. Moreover, people may struggle with depression and other emotional hardships following an accident.

Fortunately, there are resources that can help people who are unable to work due to an injury. For example, people who are able to obtain workers' compensation benefits may be able to receive help with finding work in a new field on top of the monetary assistance they are in need of. On our workers' compensation page, you can read more about job-related accidents.
