Hurt at Work? You Could Get Financial Help Through Head Injury Workers’ Compensation.

    A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is one of the most life-changing injuries you can suffer. If you got a TBI from a head injury that happened at work, you should get financial support through workers’ compensation benefits.

    An injury that forces you to miss work days and miss out on pay should qualify you for direct cash assistance under Louisiana workers’ comp. The medical care you need because of your injury should also be fully covered.

    Across the country, 70,000 to 80,000 people a year have suffered head injuries on the job that caused lost work time in recent years, according to numbers from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. And those are just the ones that got reported to the bureau.

    Most employees in Louisiana are protected by workers’ comp in the event of an accident or injury at on the job. When a workplace brain injury alters your ability to function, possibly for an extended time, you have likely earned the right to workers’ comp benefits.

    But the process can be difficult to manage. You may not realize everything you are entitled to receive. An experienced workers’ compensation lawyer can stand up for your rights as a worker.

    When Do You Have a Claim for TBI Workers’ Comp in Louisiana?

    Traumatic brain injuries on the job can happen several ways:

    • Falls
    • Blows to the head from moving objects
    • Truck, car or other vehicle collisions

    After a head injury at work, symptoms such as passing out, headaches, vision loss, nausea, slurred speech, convulsions, numbness in extremities, confusion, loss of coordination and dilated pupils may be signs of a TBI.

    A challenge of a workers’ compensation head injury case is that some of those symptoms may take time to appear.

    They’re not always as obvious as visible bruises or cuts. But for a workers’ comp claim, your injury must be directly tied to something that happened at work.

    You may need witness accounts of how your injury happened, along with medical records from doctors about your medical condition after a brain injury.

    A Louisiana workers’ comp lawyer can help you build your claim for benefits, or appeal a denial of benefits.

    You can tell the workers’ comp legal team at Workers’ Compensation, LLC, about your situation and get an idea of what you should do next—at no cost to you.
