Representative Clients

A career firefighter was diagnosed with post traumatic stress disorder after 20 years of exposure to serious injuries and fatalities.  The claim was originally filed as an injury, but was rejected by the Virginia Workers’ Compensation Commission.  The claim was subsequently filed as an occupational disease claim.  For the first time, the Supreme Court of Virginia recognized the compensability of post traumatic stress disorder as an occupational disease.
