Mental disorders and psychological conditions can make it impossible to perform your job. These conditions may arise as a result of extreme stress, a traumatic brain injury or the aftermath of a physical workplace injury. At Tillman & Associates in Atlanta, Georgia, we provide emotional and legal support to individuals suffering from mental disorders and injuries such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression and anxiety.
Is My Psychiatric Injury Covered?
Under Georgia’s workers’ compensation laws, mental disorders and psychological injuries are compensable, meaning it is possible to receive benefits if you have been affected by such an injury. However, that does mean securing benefits is easy.
These claims are some of the most difficult to prove, especially without an experienced attorney on your side. It may be a challenge to prove that the injury is legitimate or that it actually occurred at work.
For this reason, many lawyers hesitate to take on cases involving mental or psychological injuries. But at Tillman & Associates, we have the experience, reputation and confidence to fight and win on behalf of clients suffering from mental conditions and psychological injuries. If your condition prevents you from returning to work, we can also pursue a Social Security Disability claim to maximize your chances of receiving fair compensation.
