How Head Injuries Can Happen On The JobBy Pyle Law, January 19 2021 10:28 am
Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) are among the most devastating injuries one can suffer, and far too often, they’re suffered at the hands of avoidable, all too preventable negligence. Such a condition can lead to memory loss, gradual neurodegeneration of the mind, nausea, and disorientation.
In many types of jobs, physical risks are often an inevitability, but a company has legal obligations to keep those risks to a minimum. If you suffered a head injury on the job, you may be entitled to worker’s compensation for your medical expenses, lost wages, and any other pain and suffering damages you may have sustained.
Below are some of the most common head injury risks to watch out for and what your recourse should be in the wake of such an injury. If you want to discuss your specific situation, contact a Kansas workers’ compensation attorney right away.
Workers can suffer head trauma on the job for many reasons, and here are some of the most prominent sources of head injuries to watch out for:
Some workplace accidents are unavoidable, while others happen for preventable reasons. However, workers’ compensation is a no-fault system, so injured workers can file a claim for benefits no matter what caused the accident. Benefits can include medical treatment coverage, lost wages, and disability payments for extended periods away from work. If, however, someone unaffiliated with your employer was negligent and caused your head injury, you might also have a third-party claim against that party in addition to your workers’ compensation claim.
If you were involved in a workplace accident and suffered a severe head injury, don’t hesitate to contact Pyle Law for help. Workers’ compensation claims can be complicated, and many people can overcome obstacles with the help of the right Kansas workers’ compensation attorney.
