FIVE STARS!

The staff at Goicoechea Law were truly a pleasure to work with! Erica and her staff graciously handled all of my questions, and if they didn’t know the answers, they found out and got back to me. They were a huge help at keeping me on track on all the paperwork that was needed for my case, and offered help with filling it out. They kept me aware of meetings that I needed to attend in a timely manner, and were so very patient through the whole thing. They were so easy to work with! I would recommend to anyone!

Idaho Work Injuries

If you are hurt at work, you may have a claim for Idaho workers’ compensation benefits. After you are injured, your claim will be assigned to a work comp insurance adjuster. There are many Idaho workers’ compensation insurance companies, but the Idaho State Insurance Fund, Liberty Northwest, Workers Compensation Exchange, and Associated Loggers Exchange are the companies you’re most likely to see in North Idaho.
Idaho’s workers’ compensation laws are complex. Whether you’ve suffered a work accident and injury or an occupational disease, the work comp laws are not common knowledge.

Psychological Accidents and Injuries in Idaho’s Workplace

Idaho Workers’ Compensation Laws Require a Physical Injury

An injured worker in Idaho must suffer a physical injury for a psychological condition like PTSD, Depression, or Anxiety to be compensable under a workers’ compensation claim. Idaho Code Section 72-451 reads: “Psychological injuries, disorders or conditions shall not be compensated under this title, unless… caused by accident and physical injury…”

First Responders and Psychological Injuries

This requirement of Idaho law can be especially unfair to Idaho’s first responders who routinely put themselves in harm’s way and encounter situations that result in mental health injuries.

Thankfully, there are first responders who are trying to change Idaho’s law to help those first responders who dedicate so much to our society at such a great cost to themselves and their families. An article about one such first responder ran in the Idaho Press. Click here to read the article.
