When you have a physical injury that leads to a post-trauma psychological disability, the burden of proof is also a little bit lower. That is not to say it is easy, but when there is not a physical stimulus, you could be forced to show an abnormal working condition to receive benefits, which is often very difficult. You need to build a careful record and treat reliably as well. There are not to many psychiatrists in the Allentown area that also are willing to testify in a WC case, which may necessitate some travel at some point, which is often an issue with disabled workers. Good luck.
