Waukesha Psychological Injuries Lawyer

Working Hard to Achieve Favorable Results for Our Clients

Although psychological injuries or conditions are always as obvious as a physical injury, these injuries can be devastating to a person's short- and long-term health. If you have suffered a psychological or mental injury in the workplace, you may be entitled to workers' compensation benefits. An experienced lawyer can be crucial to helping you get the benefits you need.

We are the Ward Law Firm. With offices in Waukesha and Milwaukee, we represent working men and women throughout Wisconsin who have been injured in the workplace. We know that you would rather be working than collecting workers' compensation. With that said, if your mental or psychological injury makes it impossible to do your job, you and your family will need workers' compensation benefits. Our law firm has represented people suffering from a broad range of mental illnesses, including:

  • Depression
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Panic or anxiety disorder
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

Regardless of the type of injury, our law firm will fully develop the medical evidence and make the best possible case for you.

Working to Prove Your Injury to Insurance Companies

Mental and psychological injuries suffered in the workplace are covered under workers' compensation. Workers' compensation claims involving mental or psychological injuries are not always easy to prove, however. If there is no physical injury along with your psychological injury, you will need to show that the injury "resulted from a situation of greater dimensions than the day-to-day mental stresses and tensions, which all employees experience." You can be certain that insurance companies will demand substantial proof of your psychological injuries before they grant your claim for benefits. Attorney Robert T. Ward has nearly 30 years of experience practicing in this area of law, and will work to build a strong case on your behalf.
