Can an I recover workers’ compensation in New Jersey if my work causes post-traumatic stress disorder?

Yes. If something happens at work to cause an employee to suffer PTSD, the employee may recover workers’ compensation. The PTSD may be related to a physical injury at work, or it may be the only injury.

In New Jersey, the employee does not have to be engaged in a certain occupation, such as a firefighter or a police officer. For example, a factory worker or a construction worker could develop PTSD from observing a gruesome accident.
