Pursuing Benefits For Work-Related Psychological Injuries

Minnesota's workers' compensation law recognizes some types of work-related psychological claims. A mental/physical injury can occur when work-related stress produces a physical injury such as an ulcer. A physical/mental injury can occur when a work-related physical injury, such as a back injury, aggravates, accelerates or causes a mental injury such as depression or chronic pain.

Until recently, Minnesota's workers' compensation law has not recognized a mental/mental injury such as work-related mental stress producing a mental health condition such as anxiety or depression. That type of a claim is now, in certain very limited situations, recognized. Minnesota law now covers a work-related post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). In order to establish PTSD certain, specific conditions must be met.
