Workers’ Compensation Claim For Head Injury
A serious head injury can cause both organic damage — damage to the brain and tissues for example, and inorganic damage such as depression and anxiety related to chronic pain. At Atkinson Gerber Law Office, we have helped many people who have sustained head injuries in the workplace, including traumatic brain injuries (TBI), so we are extremely familiar with how these injuries can impact both the victim and his or her family members.
During this difficult time, it is important to make sure that your rights to workers’ compensation benefits now and in the future are protected. Contact our skilled attorneys to learn more about filing a workers’ compensation claim for a head injury at work.
Loss Of Consciousness Related To A Head Injury At Work?
Falling objects, slip-and-fall accidents, and accidents involving heavy equipment and vehicles are just a few common causes of head injuries in the workplace.
If you or someone you love lost consciousness after a head injury at work, this a strong indication that a brain injury could be present. Make sure to seek medical attention immediately and contact our law firm.
After a visit to the emergency room, a neurologist of your choice will conduct tests and ask questions to determine the extent of the head injury. If you lost consciousness, the doctor will want to determine how long you were unconscious.
