Question:  Can mental conditions caused by the work environment  be covered as worker’s compensation claims?

Answer:  Yes.  however, establishing such claims under Arizona law can be difficult. Statute ARS 23-1043.01 severly limits the establishment of such claims.Generally, there must be extreme circumstnaces such as reacting to a life threateneing event such as a shooting, bacnk robbery, etc.
