Miami Worker’s Compensation and Mental Health
If you have sustained an injury as the result of an accident in your workplace, you may not just be facing the problem of physical rehabilitation. Your accident may also have caused you serious emotional distress and even trauma. If you find yourself in need of mental health support, including psychiatry and counseling, as the result of your workplace injury or severe accident, do not worry. You may be eligible for worker’s compensation for this condition.
If you have had an accident at work that has resulted in a work injury as well as significant emotional and mental trauma, there is something that you can do that does not involve leaving your job for good. You can get some of the best legal help available by contacting The Hoffman Firm. The Hoffman Firm has a highly experienced and well qualified legal team that is ready to provide assistance whenever you may need it. Evan A. Hoffman, Miami Worker’s Compensation Attorney, can help you figure out what the best course of action may be, evaluating all the available options.
Just like physical conditions, worker’s compensation should cover psychological or mental health injuries that you may have sustained. Post-traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD, in addition to circumstantial depression and anxiety, may well be occurring as the result of your injury or accident. If you feel you may have some sort of traumatic psychological injury, there is no need to hold off on treating this condition or getting a full evaluation from a mental health professional such as a psychiatrist.
Without proper care and attention, mental health issues often become chronic. It is for this reason that it is especially important to address them before they begin to hinder your ability to work, which is why you should keep hold of all the documentation regarding the incident and how the surrounding circumstances have affected you. And no matter what the situation, if the injury or accident is the main source of trauma or psychological damage you are experiencing, you should never be afraid of enlisting the best help available.
