Workers' compensation and PTSD in Minnesota

Minnesota workers who have suffered post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) as a result of a work-related incident - or incidents - may qualify for workers' compensation benefits, but only under certain limited circumstances. Under current law, anyone who suffered an on the job injury after October 1, 2013 that resulted in a PTSD diagnosis may be compensated for the resulting PTSD. Even in such cases, the circumstances in which workers' compensation may be awarded are limited.

Fatal industrial accident underscores workplace dangers

It is common sense that, in Minnesota as elsewhere, some types of jobs are more dangerous than others. Whether due to an unsafe working environment, faulty equipment, or simply unfortunate circumstances, workplace accidents usually happen suddenly and without warning: A person is just doing their job one minute and in the next, their life has changed forever.
