Minnesota Lawyers for the Injured Workers

Depression & Work Stress

Minneapolis Workers' Compensation Claim Attorneys

Physical injuries are not the only injuries covered by workers' compensation benefits. Mental injuries and illnesses may be covered as well, depending on the situation. If the depression is caused by a mental stress at work such as a high-paced work environment or a rude supervisor, the depression is not going to be covered by workers' compensation. However, if you suffered a physical injury in the workplace and coping with that injury has led to depression, workers' compensation benefits may be available. With more than 50 years of combined experience on our side, the Minneapolis lawyers at Midwest Disability have in-depth knowledge of the benefits that may be available to you.

Work Is Stressful, but That Does Not Mean Workers' Comp Is Available

Most people suffer some degree of stress in the workplace. For some, that can lead to depression. Unfortunately, workers' comp is not available in these situations.

Depression as a Consequential Injury

Coping with a serious injury can be stressful. The stress of adjusting to life in a wheelchair, the stress of constant pain from a lower back injury and the other types of stresses that come with an injury can lead to depression. If the initial physical injury was suffered in the workplace, the consequential mental injury may be eligible for workers' compensation benefits.

Employers and workers' compensation insurance companies will frequently challenge claims of depression. We have the strength and the skill to overcome their challenges and help you get all of the workers' comp benefits you are entitled to.
