Depression and Workers’ Comp Benefits
While generally difficult to prove, depression can be compensated for under the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Act. In the 2005 Illinois Appellate Court case, Rotberg v. Industrial Commission, depression was related to the plaintiff’s employment. In this case, it was found that a teacher suffered from anxiety and depression due to being falsely accused of battery and arrested, after breaking up a fight between students.
If you or a loved one is suffering from severe anxiety or depression due to a work-related event, it is time to seek the help of our skilled attorneys.
