Workers’ Compensation For Head And Brain Injuries
Many workers suffer head and brain injuries. Such injuries may result from a fall, a sudden blunt impact to the head, a vehicle accident that occurs at a worksite, a falling object or other work-related hazards.
After a serious head injury or trauma to the brain, a victim may need a lifetime of medical care and rehabilitation. Some very severe cases may inhibit brain function, causing permanent limitations and impairments to a person’s fine motor skills, sensory perception and cognitive abilities. In these types of situations, it is critical that injured persons retain an experienced workers’ compensation attorney.
We are here to help when you or a family member is facing the future after a brain injury or head injury. Philip J. Fulton Law Office confidently handles these sensitive cases throughout Ohio for clients who have been injured at work and need to file a workers’ compensation claim. Our firm represents clients who have suffered a range of head injuries, including:
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI) and closed head injuries, resulting from a direct or indirect blow to the head, including concussions, penetrating injuries, contrecoup injuries and others
- Skull fractures that leave the brain open to injury and infection, as well as brain matter leakage
- Contusions and avulsions, where the head is bruised or the scalp has been pulled away from the skull
All of these situations can lead to serious, lifelong brain damage. To schedule your free consultation, contact our law office in Columbus, Ohio.
