PTSD or Post-traumatic stress disorder can occur in anyone in Minneapolis exposed to traumatic incidents. This can include being involved in a life-threatening situation or a perceived life-threatening event, or it may include witnessing such an event. These events can occur in the workplace, such as observing the death of a coworker in an accident, or it may be a part of the job as experienced by Minneapolis first responders.
While PTSD is recognized in the mental health community and the medical community, it is very difficult to prove as part of a PTSD workers compensation claim.
