Head And Brain Injuries Can Have A Devastating Impact On Your Life And Your Ability To Earn A Living

Many medical professionals say that a brain injury is often the first injury to result from an accident, but among the last to be diagnosed. It is not uncommon for a worker to feel fine after being hit in the head by falling material or moving overhead equipment, only to feel the effects days or even weeks later. In many cases, symptoms of a traumatic brain injury are first noticed by the accident victim's co-workers or family members.

If you were struck on the head while on a job site, notify your employer immediately — even if you do not think you suffered an injury. If left untreated, the symptoms of a minor brain injury may become more serious, possibly becoming a permanent disability.

I have dedicated my professional legal career to helping injured workers get the medical care and wage benefits they are entitled to through Georgia workers' compensation.

Common Causes Of Head And Brain Injuries

Qualifying brain injuries include:

  • Skull fractures, open head wounds
  • Hematoma and tumors
  • Cognitive impairment, concussions
  • Permanent impairment of speech
  • Impaired motor functions
  • Short- and long-term memory loss
  • Temperament and personality changes
  • Sensory impairment

In addition to physical brain injuries, many types of psychological and emotional disorders may qualify you for treatment and wage benefits. Call me to discuss your circumstances.

Proving Your Case

Too often, employers and workers' compensation insurance carriers deny claims for head injuries because there is no outside physical evidence of an injury. Building a strong case for benefits requires working closely with doctors and health care professionals to gather reports. It also means finding nonmedical evidence such as a change of personality, temperament or cognitive abilities like short-term memory. I have significant experience handling the complexities of workers' compensation head injury claims and appeals.
