What do I do if I develop Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (or other mental injuries) from my work?

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a mental injury that results when a person's normal "fight-or-flight" response to a traumatizing event carries over into non-threatening or non-dangerous situations. A person with PTSD may feel fearful or stressed long after a frightening incident occurs. PTSD can affect your activities of daily living, your sleep, and even your work. 

Because the workplace is an unpredictable environment, employees are often exposed to frightening or potentially dangerous incidents. Examples include nearly falling from a great height, witnessing a workplace accident, or escaping a fire, etc. The list of traumatic events that are possible at the workplace is endless. 

In North Carolina, persons suffering from PTSD (or other mental injuries) that arise out of a workplace incident are generally entitled to workers compensation benefits. If you have suffered a mental injury as a result of a workplace incident, contact a Charlotte Workers Compensation attorney today to recieve a  free consultation. If you have questions, please feel free to contact Christian Ayers or John Ayers at (704) 377-5050.
