Traumatic Brain Injuries are Debilitating-Call a Tough, Reliable RI/MA Work Comp Lawyer Today
Head injuries suffered in workplace accidents are especially frightening, as they could result in brain damage. It's important to have a workers' compensation attorney on your side who can help you get the full amount of benefits that you need and deserve. The Law Offices of Deborah G. Kohl has been helping injured workers for decades.
Workplace traumatic brain injuries (TBI) can happen anywhere and are devastating to TBI victims and their loved ones. The brain controls major functions of the body, including movement, so any head injury can result in brain damage and the life-changing health problems and medical conditions that often accompany it. Whether caused by work-related car accidents, construction accidents or slip and fall injuries, the consequences of on-the-job traumatic brain injury can be catastrophic, including:
Workers who suffer head injuries are often left with medical expenses that can become overwhelming very quickly. And because they can't work, there is less income coming in. As a result, there is a significant financial impact on workers and their families, in addition to the physical and emotional impact of the injury. Many families struggle to get by during this difficult time.
The workers' compensation system is designed to pay needed medical expenses for injured workers and provide them with partial wages while they are unable to return to work. But the claims process can be complicated. This is especially true in cases involving traumatic brain injury, because there can be a lot of money at stake.
Employers and insurance companies can and often do challenge claims for workers' compensation benefits. They may dispute the extent of your injuries or question whether a certain test, procedure or treatment is necessary. They have attorneys looking for ways to help them save money. That's why you need an experienced workers' compensation attorney fighting for what's best for you.
