Missouri Head Injury and Traumatic Brain Injury Work Comp Lawyers
Unfortunately, serious head injuries do occur at work and can result in permanent and life altering injuries and medical conditions. A head injury from a sudden blow or jolt may result in loss of memory, inability to stay on task, change in mood and emotional condition, brain damage, and ability to continue in gainful employment. Problems maintaining employment following a head injury at work mean serious financial problems for the employee and need for continuing medical treatment. Experienced legal counsel in Workers’ Compensation matters is needed to ensure compensation in the form of medical benefits, lost wages (past and future) and continuing disability payments.
The range of damages caused by a head injury can vary from a slight concussion to a traumatic brain injury (TBI). The amount of time lost from work can vary from a few weeks to a loss of the ability to maintain employment. Benefits that an employee who suffers a head injury may be entitled to receive include Permanent Total Disability, Temporary Total Disability benefits, and Permanent Partial Disability.
A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is often very difficult to medically diagnose to ensure proper treatment and hopeful recovery. Injuries to the brain that may cause the condition of traumatic brain injury include damage caused by injury to the frontal lobe of the brain or blood clotting on the brain. These injuries may cause difficulties with an employee’s cognitive function and diminish the ability to recall events and causes changes in mood and personality and continuing dizziness and ability to function in employment.
Because of the complex medical issues often involved in such cases, it is important to have the guidance and assistance of legal counsel with experience in handling such cases. Some attorneys may be unwilling to delve into such complex matters to get at the most accurate diagnosis and care for their clients. Some attorneys may also be looking for quick settlements that do not ensure the interest of their client and ensure full compensation and the long term medical care that may be required for this type of case.
