Major Depressive Disorder

Whether you are doing battle with your own health insurance company or seeking workers' compensation after trauma or stress on the job triggered major depressive disorder, you are advised to contact an attorney. At Daisley Law Offices, P.C., I am dedicated to helping injured and disabled people obtain benefits and compensation when any type of injury or illness causes loss, expense and inability to work.

A major depressive disorder may be triggered by any number of factors, including one or more of the following:

  • Internal factors such as past abuse
  • External factors such as traumatic events (hurricanes, sexual assault, home fire or cancer, for example)
  • Biological factors, including genetic predisposition (often demonstrated by review of family tree) and hormonal changes (such as postpartum depression, "male midlife crisis" or menopause-related depression)

If your major depressive disorder was triggered by workplace events or conditions, you may be entitled to workers' compensation. If you are unable to work due to a depressive disorder for a year or longer, you may be entitled to Social Security Disability benefits. If you are employed or are a dependent of an employee with health care benefits that are supposed to cover mental health treatment, but the insurer is balking at paying for needed hospitalization or expensive prescriptions, you are well advised to consult with an attorney with experience handling mental health matters.
