Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI) in the Workplace and Workers Comp

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, approximately 1.5 million Americans experience a traumatic brain injury (TBI) annually. Year after year, employees are at risk of a traumatic brain injury that may occur while they're on the job. If you or a loved one experienced a traumatic brain injury during your employment, it's time to seek financial compensation through workers comp to recoup mounting medical bills and loss of income. At Shultz Legal, we understand that a work injury can severely impact the trajectory of your life. We're here to work with you to get the compensation you deserve.

What is a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)?

A traumatic brain injury, more commonly known as TBI, is an intracranial injury due to experiencing a blow to one's head or an object penetrating brain tissue. A traumatic brain injury can be serious and unexpected. It's not an injury that anyone would intentionally incur within their lifetime, especially not while you're working. One of the most significant issues with a traumatic brain injury is that it can potentially be a lifelong injury with an unknown extent of long-term symptoms. How this may affect your future employment opportunities, or even your physical capabilities may not be fully uncovered until down the road. 

Am I Eligible for Workers Comp with a TBI?

It's essential to meet with a highly experienced workers comp attorney to determine your eligibility for workers comp due to a TBI while you were on the job. Traumatic brain injuries can include concussions, post-concussion syndrome, and additional brain injuries with short-term or lifelong symptoms. Since you may have to seek out professional help from a neurologist, psychologist, and other professionals to combat your symptoms, TBI cases can be costly. Therefore, it's vital to have medical and personal documentation for your worker's comp case to determine your financial benefits. Contact Shultz Legal today for a consultation!
