A number of states are currently researching whether mental injury claims like occupational PTSD should be covered under workers' compensation. Utah, for instance, has passed legislation establishing a commission to study the compensability of mental stress claims from first responders with PTSD. Other states, including Arizona, Kentucky, Missouri, Ohio, South Carolina, and West Virginia have considered such legislation in the past, but chose not to move forward or failed to pass the law.
While an on-the-job injury may seem unlikely, you're probably thinking that if you were, your employer would be there for you. Unfortunately, this isn't the case a lot of the time as employers and their workers' compensation insurance carriers are always trying to minimize costs.
Learning how workers' compensation, workplace safety and personal injury laws work can be very difficult for someone lacking the savvy and knowledge of where to look for information and how to digest it.
Our goal at WorkingManLaw.com is to make the law accessible to everyone, regardless of income or level of education. Our belief is the law is for everyone and that everyone should be able to adequately understand it to make it work for them.
