Workers’ Compensation Laws on PTSD
In the state of Washington, all workers’ compensation claims are covered under the Industrial Insurance Act. This law states that PTSD that is caused by an industrial injury is covered. IN 2018, Senate Bill 6214 was also passed, which also recognizes PTSD as an occupational disease for first responders. This means that all first responders are eligible to file a claim for their PTSD, whether it was caused by chronic workplace stress or by a sudden traumatic event.
At Colburn Law, we can go over these laws with you, and help you understand your rights as a first responder before proceeding with a formal claim. We believe in full transparency and communication with our clients, and letting them have full knowledge of our process before officially proceeding.
