Work accidents that result in head injuries are very serious, because they can also result in a brain injury. A brain injury can affect a worker physically, mentally, emotionally and financially, and the worker may never be the same. At the Law Offices of Richard A. Jaffe, LLC, we help these workers recover workers' compensation benefits they deserve in Pennsylvania.
Some jobs are more dangerous than others, but brain injuries can happen to any worker at any workplace. Brain injuries can occur as a result of being hit by an object, falling, being involved in a car or truck accident, or as a result of violence. If the injury occurred on the job, the worker is eligible for workers' compensation benefits under Pennsylvania's system.
A head injury can lead to a traumatic brain injury (TBI), which can lead to the loss of brain function. This can affect an injured worker in different ways, including:
- Blindness or difficulty with vision
- Balance problems
- Difficulty with memory and reasoning skills
- Having trouble expressing and understanding thoughts
- Having trouble regulating emotions
- Personality changes
Workers with a minor brain injury may experience only a temporary loss of brain function. But for others, there may be permanent damage. Any type of TBI can have an impact on injured workers and their families, who are faced with rising medical expenses and loss of income.
