What Are the Signs of Brain Damage?
While there are many signs of brain damage some of the most common signs are:
- Blurred vision
- Mood swings
- Nausea or vomiting
- Loss of consciousness
- Tiredness or dizziness
- Problems with speech or memory
Because they take a toll on your physical, emotional and mental wellbeing, brain injuries are extremely difficult injuries to suffer through.
Traumatic Brain Injuries and Workers' Comp
One of the most common types of on-the-job brain injuries is a traumatic brain injury (TBI). The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention notes that more than 50 percent of TBIs are caused by motor vehicle accidents and falls. You may be entitled to workers’ comp benefits if you suffered a TBI or other brain injury due to work-related situations such as these.
Employment-related car accidents and falls often affect:
- Construction workers
- Utility workers
- Taxi cab drivers
- Bus drivers
- Delivery drivers
In situations specifically involving falls, workers are often injured when they fall from:
- Scissors, boom, or mast lifts
- Poorly maintained stairways
Be sure that no matter what caused your head or brain injury, you protect both your health and your rights. You should seek medical treatment and legal representation as soon as possible after your injury.
We strive to get our clients the compensation they need to restore their dignity and make as full a recovery as possible. This is why we are called The Injured Workers’ Attorneys.
Can You Fully Recover from a Traumatic Brain Injury?
Recovering from a serious brain injury depends largely how severe the injury you sustained is. As most would expect the prognosis for recovering completely from a less severe traumatic brain injury is typically better and the recovery time shorter than that of a more severe injury.
Although there are many variables that can affect this timeline, those who suffer a mild head injury most often recover within a few months. Unfortunately, recovering from a more serious injury can take longer.
Furthermore, a more serious injury raises the chances you will need specific forms of medical intervention as part of your recovery process such as:
- Speech therapy
- Or physical therapy
