While all workplace injuries are serious, head and brain injuries require some of the closest attention and care due to their severity.
These types of injuries can disrupt brain function and permanently impair cognitive faculties, causing irreparable damage to quality of life and ability to work. This means that traumatic brain injuries (TBI) victims and family members should be fully compensated for:
- Medical treatment
- Lost wages
- Ongoing lifestyle change and care
While workers’ compensation benefits are set up to provide benefits to injured workers, TBI injuries tend to be more difficult than other injuries. A head injury may present effects that have slow onsets or are otherwise not immediately apparent. As such, it becomes extremely important to reach out to a medical professional and lawyer to protect your rights and interests.
