Obtaining a head injury of any kind can be detrimental to your overall health and have lasting results that make it difficult to live comfortably or perform any other functions well. When you’ve been involved with a head injury, either through a work-related accident or a general one, you’ll need as much legal guidance as possible to help you get the remedies and compensation owed for your head injury.
Unfortunately, head injuries are a common injury that we see in workers' compensation cases, usually as the result of a workplace accident. Whether someone is struck by falling objects, or they slip and fall causing a head injury, neck injury, or a spinal cord injury, we deal with all cases relating to head injuries in the workplace or through a personal injury. Head injuries and related spinal injuries can be deadly and not-reversible, so you must get immediate legal and medical assistance when an accident does occur and you are the victim.
Accident at Work
An accident at work can range from something small like slipping on the floor, resulting in a hand injury, or something more severe like a concussion from being hit accidentally with a heavy, falling object. Whatever the case, we take on several types of workers' compensation cases on behalf of the client to develop your story into a legal claim that entitles you to compensation and benefits from your employer because of negligence or workplace conditions. As much as it is the employee's job to perform the job duties, it is also the employer’s job to ensure that the work environment where those duties are performed is consistently safe and welcoming for all employees, regardless of the job itself or the industry.
Car Accident Injury or Truck Accident Injury
Car accident injuries or truck accident injuries while on the job can also be eligible for some workers' compensation, depending on the scenario. In most of these auto-related injuries, we find that clients have a head injury, back injury, or a knee, ankle, and foot injury. Should this be the case, we're determined to work with you to resolve the legal issues behind the problem and get you adequate compensation that helps cover the costs of your living expenses while out of work, but also ensure that you have the medical funds to pay for your treatment, whether it is through insurance or your employer.
What You’re Entitled To
Depending on how your case plays out in court, the other party or your place of employment could be liable for paying for your surgery, any medical costs associated, as well as recuperation and therapy costs as well. If your head injury is incredibly severe and requires significant attention and assessment because of the injury, we will work tirelessly to get you all of the resources and financial means needed so that you can recover comfortably and accordingly to live a healthy life.
