Post-traumatic Stress Disorder
Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a serious condition that can have an effect on every aspect of your life. It most commonly impacts veterans and others who have been involved in war. However, PTSD can develop after any traumatic event, including an accident at work.
If you have PTSD as a result of a work accident or your service in the military, you may be able to secure compensation to help you cover your treatment and any lost wages. At Martin Law, our attorneys are committed to helping injured workers secure the compensation to cover all of their work-related injuries and conditions, including PTSD.
