What Can Happen After a Head Injury?

Head InjuryHead injuries are one of the most dangerous types of injury because they can lead to brain injuries, which can result in life-altering conditions and disabilities. Your brain is the organ in charge of all other bodily functions and if it is damaged, other body parts and systems can suffer.

If you suffer any impact to your head in a workplace accident, seek medical care right away and discuss your head trauma with the doctor. Even if you feel fine, you could have suffered from an injury that can have long-lasting effects. If this is the case, you might be entitled to file an insurance claim or a third-party lawsuit to seek monetary compensation for your medical and other needs related to your injury.

Symptoms of a Brain Injury

Brain injuries are often referred to as “invisible injuries” because they occur internally. As the injury victim, it can also be difficult to recognize your own symptoms following this type of injury. Some symptoms of brain injuries include:

  • Fatigue;
  • Short-term memory loss;
  • Personality changes;
  • Blurry vision;
  • Headache;
  • Confusion;
  • Trouble sleeping; and
  • Nausea.

Do not take these symptoms lightly. In many cases, injuries that appear to be minor can become more serious over time. Untreated brain injuries can result in the following conditions:

  • Paralysis;
  • Paresis;
  • Loss of mobility;
  • Mental and cognitive health problems; and/or
  • Physical disabilities.

In some extreme cases, a brain injury can even result in death. This is most often associated with traumatic brain injuries, a category of more severe brain injuries.

If You are Injured on the Job

If you suffer from any type of injury at work, the first thing you need to do is seek medical attention and receive a diagnosis and treatment for your injury. Do not seek legal representation until you have received medical treatment – your health should always take top priority.

The next step is to work with an experienced workplace injury attorney to determine who is at fault for your injury. It could be your employer or it could be a third party. The type of claim you may file depends on which party is responsible for your accident.

Client Reviews
I absolutely cannot speak highly enough of CMA Law, particularly of Mr. McMahon, with whom I have had the most experience. My entire family and I trusted CMA with our case following a significant and life-altering vehicle accident, and to say they delivered is putting it lightly. They were reachable & personable at every stage of this arduous, complex, and scary process, made things easier at every stage, inspired us with confidence, and delivered results. If you're looking for a law firm to place the trust of you in your family in, look absolutely no further than CMA - this is your firm. Declan O.
I suffered a severe spinal injury while working as a farm mechanic in the Salinas Valley. The attorneys -Tim McMahon and Mark Sigala were fantastic from the beginning. They fought for me over 3 long years and in the end, we won a difficult liability case against the farm company who was using dangerous equipment. The defendants in the case tried everything to put the blame on me and even claimed I was their employee in order to avoid civil responsibility. Tim and Mark never gave up on me and my case. I cannot recommend them highly enough. They are fighters. Adrian A.
