Brain Injuries Suffered on the Job

The loss of typical physical abilities as well as serious psychological problems can be brought on by traumatic brain injury. Their family frequently suffer a great deal as a result of them, financially, emotionally, and physically. Making up for missed pay, any immediate medical care, any required ongoing care, and the assistance of family members are just a few of the costs connected with this kind of accident.

Sometimes the signs of a brain damage are not immediately evident. It may be obvious to you and to those who know you well that you have a mild TBI if you have symptoms including mood swings, headaches, vision problems, confusion, and problems concentrating. Your medical professional will probably conduct diagnostic procedures, such as x-rays or MRIs, if you experience a traumatic brain injury. Treatments could take a long time, and benefits might be hard to quantify.

Unfortunately, brain injuries are extremely complicated and may have long-term effects. More serious injuries may not be treatable and result in death. The funeral and other costs involved with the funeral would be left up to the family members in the event of a catastrophic damage to the brain.

You might be eligible to file a workers' compensation claim if you had a brain injury at work. Employers in Florida are required to have workers' compensation insurance if they have four or more employees. Because the workers' compensation system is no-fault, you do not have to demonstrate that your employer committed a mistake in order to get compensation.
