What to Know About PTSD and Workers’ Comp Rights in Colorado
Do you suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) because of something that happened to you at work?
Did you witness something traumatic that threatened your life?
If you answered, “Yes,” you’re entitled to workers’ compensation benefits in the state of Colorado.
How Can PTSD Occur on the Job?
PTSD can occur on the job in many different ways. For example, if you work as a police officer and you’re involved in an attack or shooting, it could cause PTSD symptoms. In addition, paramedics and firefighters could also experience these symptoms if they’re exposed to traumatic events at work frequently.

What Kind of Benefits Are You Entitled To?
If your PTSD is service-connected or related to an on-the-job injury, you may receive both medical and financial benefits that will help cover the cost of your treatment, pay for transportation, childcare, home health services, and lost wages.
Do I Qualify for Workers’ Compensation?
You may receive workers’ compensation if you were injured on the job or experienced a work-related accident that caused your PTSD. But, certain situations don’t qualify. If you were exposed to trauma before entering the workforce or starting a new job, you may not be entitled to benefits.
