A: You have a valid work injury claim. If you have developed an emotional reaction to your injuries and the incident, you may be able to get treatment under your claim. You'd have to have a psychologist or other mental health professional confirm a diagnosis and file a motion to have the condition recognized as part of your claim so treatment may be authorized.
