What to Know About PTSD and Workers’ Comp Rights in Colorado

Colorado workers compensation attorneys

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.

Can you relate? Have you experienced something traumatic? Contact an experienced Colorado  workers’ compensation attorney to discuss your rights.

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.

"Kaufman and Kaufman was extremely professional in my case. They set appointments as often as I requested which was often weekly or more. They handled all the problems that came up and ended up settling my case for more than I expected. I was very happy with the result."

"I’ve known the folks at Kaufman and Kaufman for more than 30 years. Correct - I said 30 years. The Kaufman’s have *always* done the right thing, especially when it’s not easy. Trust, in 2022, is hard. Trusting the Kaufman’s, in 2022, is simple."

"Kaufman and Kaufman represented me in a workman’s comp case and I couldn’t be happier with their service. They were very professional and gave me the personal service I was relying on. I hope I never get in that kind of situation again but if I do the Kaufman’s would be the firm I’d call. I highly recommend them."

- Erik (2022)

"Couldn't have asked for a more compassionate and thorough legal representation! Matt was so patient in taking the time to explain everything. The entire staff was incredible. I felt bolstered and validated throughout. I would recommend K&K to anyone going through a dark time with a debilitating injury.. they truly do care about their clients."

"The Kaufman team is very professional and knowledgeable about the work comp laws . They guided me in every step of the process, and if I ever have to do this again , they would be my first call. Without them i wouldn't have been able to pay my bills, and provide for my family. Thanks again to Kaufman and Kaufman for allowing my family to survive."
