When an employee is involved in a dangerous, stressful or frightening situation, it can have long-lasting consequences. In particular, victims and witnesses may develop post-traumatic stress disorder.
Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is an anxiety disorder caused by a traumatic experience. If the disorder was caused by an event that occurred while the worker was on the job, he or she has a right to seek workers' compensation benefits.
