Awareness of the causes and effects of Post-Traumatic Stress Syndrome has grown substantially in recent years, especially with regard to our veterans returning from combat. However, many workers in Minnesota face traumatic events while on the job. Health care professionals, security guards and first responders often experience traumatic events while doing their jobs. An armed robbery at a convenience store, a violent incident at any establishment or office building, as well as a life-threatening accident may all trigger PTSD.
In Minnesota, we have a law called the "Minnesota No-Fault Statute." (Minn. Stat. 65B.44). This law provides that all licensed vehicles must carry insurance. The portion that pays your medical bills is called "personal injury protection" or more commonly known as "no-fault" benefits.
