Work-Related Mental Health Injuries Attorney

When people think about work-related injuries, they often think of physical ailments. Although physical injuries and illnesses are common, mental health illnesses can also be suffered because of on-the-job accidents or experiences.

If you are struggling with mental health because of a traumatic on-the-job experience, an experienced lawyer can help you receive the financial compensation you need while you take time to recover. At the law office of Jay Gervasi, P.A., we recognize that treatment for people's psyche is as important as treatment for their bodies, and we are committed to helping injured people and their families in Greensboro and throughout North Carolina receive the workers' compensation benefits they need for mental health injuries.

Traumatic Experiences At Work

When people are exposed to traumatic experiences, it can be difficult for them to move forward after the experience. If a traumatic experience at work is impacting your emotional well-being, attorney Jay Gervasi may be able to help you receive the benefits you need. Be aware that such cases can be difficult to win under North Carolina law, but if you are suffering from trauma-related mental illness, it is worth checking to find out if benefits are available.

Mental Health Struggles After Physical Injuries

When people suffer debilitating physical injuries, it's unfortunately common for them to struggle mentally as well. Depression, anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) can all occur when an individual is unable to enjoy his or her normal activities because of a physical injury.

It is common for injured workers with severe pain to have a hard time sleeping, which can wear them down. The frustration of being unable to work and the financial hardship of receiving somewhat less than the pre-injury take-home pay can cause depression problems. That is made worse by the reluctance of many injured persons to acknowledge that they are having mental health problems. All of this complicates physical difficulties in ways that require specialized treatment and can worsen disability.
