Head injuries can have a myriad of physical, mental and emotional consequences for the victim. When workers suffer a head injury on the job, it can also have a financial impact as the person may be unable to continue with his or her job for a short amount of time, or even permanently. Although a head injury is one of the most common types of workplace injuries, a California victim deserves personalized assistance.
Head injuries are particularly common for construction workers and those who are employed in an industry that requires physical labor. Even a seemingly minor bump on the head can have internal consequences and result in headaches, dizziness, nausea, memory loss and more. In more severe cases, a head injury can have permanent consequences, resulting in impaired cognition or brain damage.
When a head or brain injury is suffered on the job, a person has the right to seek compensation for medical bills and pain and suffering. Filing a workers’ compensation claim for a head injury can be complex, and many claims may initially be denied. A claimant still has options, and an experienced California lawyer can give the injured individual a better chance of actually securing the money that he or she needs.
When workplace injuries compromise you or a loved one’s quality of life, it is important to work with a legal ally who can help you navigate the workers’ compensation process. A head injury may have impacted your ability to work and continue with a normal life, but you have the right to a full recovery. Our experienced team is ready to help you understand your options.
