Assisting Clients After Head Injuries Caused By Accidents

A head injury that occurs on the job can have more complicated repercussions than the pain and suffering. Dealing with insurers and employers is challenging for most injured workers. It is important to consult with an attorney as soon as possible when a serious or catastrophic injury is a result of a workplace accident such as:

  • Vehicle accident on the job
  • Forklift accident
  • Falling merchandise or other materials from shelves in a warehouse
  • Falling from a height
  • Falling debris at a construction site
  • Trauma triggered by an explosion
  • Trauma caused by an accident involving heavy machinery
  • Hypoxic brain injury resulting from oxygen deprivation such as when a trench collapses and a worker almost suffocates

Head injuries range from mild to fully disabling. Even a “mild” head injury can leave a worker unable to perform his or her previous duties, even after several days, weeks or months of recovery time. A more serious head injury may result in cognitive losses, disfigurement, coma or inducement of a vegetative state.

After a time of recovery, a worker’s compensation insurance carrier or an employer may insist that a worker with a less than catastrophic head injury is able to return to work. The worker may give his or her best efforts, but suffer from lingering effects such as:

  • Personality change
  • Irritability
  • Inability to concentrate
  • Inability to multitask as in the past
  • Chronic migraine-like headaches
  • Dizziness

“I would just like to say to everyone at the firm, this is about Jeff Alter, I know that you all there have large and much more profitable cases than mine, the people that Jeff and his secretary had to deal with are simply scandals and that is being polite, but Jeff and his wonderful secretary fought for me and my family, I was off work over this for over a year. Medical bills . . . just a lot of uncertainty, fear and just being taken great advantage of, my settlement is only a few dollars, less than $4,000, this is in no way due to lack of working hard and vigorously for me [sic].”
