Can a Mine Worker Get Disability if He Can’t Work Underground?



A mine worker suffering from PTSD due to a mine accident due to carelessness of employer, was fired by the employer because of inability to work underground. Can he get disability pension?



He certainly has a WC case. As to whether he has a disability pension would be based on the reading of the contract he has with his employer. If he is a union member, then he will need to read the collective bargaining agreement or contact his business agent.
