Are psychological stress claims covered under Workers Compensation in MN?
Q) Are psychological stress claims covered under Workers Compensation in MN?
A) Stress injuries can be covered for Workers Compensation. For instance if I have a back injury and I can't work and I develop depression because I'm unable to work, both the back injury and the depression would be covered. If I'm in a high stressful job such as a fireman or peace officer and I develop ulcers or a heart attack from the stress associated with the job that is covered. So physical injuries causing stress is covered , stress causing physical injury is covered but stress causing stress injuries are not covered. So if I have a lot of stress in my job and I have a nervous break down that is not covered.
