Our office had the opportunity to represent a state employee who had developed PTSD as a result of his work. PTSD became a compensable work injury in October 1, 2013. Prior to that date, individuals suffering from PTSD were not entitled to any wage loss or medical benefits under the Minnesota Workers’ Compensation system. the Attorneys at Fields Law fought the insurance company to help this client obtain a settlement of more than $160,000 to compensate him for his past and future wage loss, medical expenses, and his permanent partial disability due to his mental and physical work injuries.
