Mental Health

Claims for compensation or benefits involving mental health issues sometimes meet with resistance and require aggressive advocacy. Your claim for compensation or benefits where a mental health issue is concerned may involve one or more of the following:

  • A plaintiff's claim or lawsuit — for example, a personal injury claim after a violent attack
  • A workers' compensation claim related to bullying on the job or work-related stress
  • A Social Security Disability claim when schizophrenia or some other mental health condition leaves you unable to work as before
  • A veterans' disability benefit claim when the onset or worsening of your condition occurred during the course of military service

Our North Carolina and South Carolina full-service injury and disability law firm handles cases on behalf of clients suffering from conditions including the following:

  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD): may be a workers' compensation case if triggered by a specific traumatic event on the job
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Major depressive disorder, perhaps triggered by chronic pain or a traumatic event
  • Personality disorders
  • Identity disorders
  • Gender identity disorders
  • Mental health conditions with genetic components, triggered by abuse, stress or anxiety
