A severe head injury can require weeks and months of healing. In some cases, they can result in permanent disabilities, and the victim may never work again. If you have suffered a head injury at work, a North Carolina severe head injury attorney can help you navigate the workers’ compensation claim process. 

Did You Suffer a Head Injury at Work? 

If you were in an accident at work that resulted in a head injury, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits that will cover your medical treatment and up to two-thirds of your lost income. Workers’ comp routinely covers injuries that occurred in the course of an employee’s job and prevents them from working. Some common workplace accidents that result in head injuries that are covered by workers’ comp include the following: 

Whether you work in an industrial setting or in an office, if your head injury was caused by an accident while performing your job, a North Carolina severe head injury attorney can help you get the workers’ comp benefits you need. 

Severe Head Injuries Commonly Suffered by Workers

There are a wide variety of work-related head injuries that are covered by workers’ compensation. Some of the most common severe head injuries that result in workers’ comp claims include the following: 

  • Concussions
  • Skull fractures
  • Subdural hematomas – blood pooling within the skull
  • Diffuse axonal injuries where nerve tissue is torn due to the brain shifting or rotating within the skull
  • Brain contusions

Some accidents can unexpectedly result in head injuries. For example, a loss of oxygen to the brain can result in brain damage, even though there was no physical trauma to the head. If you have suffered a head injury at work, the best thing you can do is to contact a North Carolina severe head injury attorney as soon as possible. 

How a Severe Head Injury Can Impact Your Job Performance

In recent years, we have learned more about how head injuries can carry long-term consequences. Many of these consequences can have a significant impact on your ability to do your job. Some of these consequences include the following: 

  • Recurring headaches
  • Vision or hearing impairments
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Loss of cognitive ability
  • Irritability and other mood disorders
  • Dizziness and loss of balance
  • Memory loss

Cognitive impairments can have an impact on just about anyone’s ability to do their job. Irritability and mood swings can also be challenging, especially if you must work with customers or clients. Ultimately, you may be unable to work until you have fully recovered from your head injury. A North Carolina severe head injury attorney can help you file a workers’ compensation claim.
