Workers Compensation

In spite of increasing safety regulations and precautions, several people become injured at work every year.  Although most of these injuries are relatively mild, some restrict or impair the employee’s ability to perform his or her duties.  Facing a loss of income, such employees often file for workers compensation benefits.

 

Although physical injuries are the most commonly compensated type of workplace injury, mental injuries are also compensable.  This typically occurs when a physical stimulus causes a mental injury (chronic back pain causing depression), or when a mental stimulus causes a physical injury (repeated stress causing a heart condition).  Since 2013 Minnesota has also allowed compensation when a mental stimulus causes a mental injury, such as when considerable fear causes Posttraumatic Stress Disorder.

 

Whenever an employee files for workers compensation, a psychological evaluation is typically requested in order to document and verify the mental injury.  This evaluation examines typically assesses the nature and extent of the mental injury, whether it was caused by or exacerbated by the workplace accident, and the level of functional impairment that the employee has as a result.  This is done by collecting and analyzing relevant information such as a clinical interview, psychological instruments, and collateral information.
