Occupational Mental Health Lawyer

Occupational diseases and work-related injuries are not always physical. Mental health conditions are just as devastating and also can be compensated for under workers’ comp benefits. In Illinois, generally a physical injury must accompany the mental condition — for example, a traumatic fall injury leading to anxiety, depression or post-traumatic stress disorder.If you have been injured in a work-related accident, or have suffered an occupational disease and are also suffering mentally from this, it is time to seek the help of a law firm highly experienced in these matters.

Mental Health Conditions and Workers’ Comp Benefits

Obtaining workers’ comp benefits in Illinois for a mental health condition is not as easy as other states, due to the specific guidelines set out under the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Act and Occupational Diseases Act. However, this does not mean it is not possible. In most cases, there must be some sort of physical injury or occupational disease in conjunction with the mental health condition.

Mental health conditions include:

  • PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder)
  • Anxiety disorders
  • Depression
  • Emotional distress
  • Severe stress
