Compassionate Advocates For Workers With Traumatic Brain Injuries
Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) on the job come about in a myriad of ways, such as:
- A motor vehicle accident
- A slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall accident
- The dropping of a heavy load from above you
- Your fall from a high place
In most cases, workers’ compensation helps a worker with a head injury get medical care as long as necessary. An injured employee who cannot work as usual for an extended period may also receive weekly benefits equal to a portion of his or her regular earnings.
A workers’ compensation attorney on your side can help ensure that you overcome any obstacles to receiving all benefits that you qualify for. If Law Offices of Andrew B. Shin represents you, we will work to ensure that you have access to appropriate medical professionals for your best chances at a good recovery.
Investigating The Accident And Identifying Who Is Responsible
Your head injury on the job may appear to be a straightforward workers’ compensation case. However, this may not be the whole story. Your brain injury may have happened because of negligence by a third party (someone other than your employer). A subcontractor, a delivery company or an equipment manufacturer may have made a mistake that led to your accidental injury.
You may be able to bring a third-party liability claim in addition to your workers’ compensation claim with your employer’s insurer. A third-party liability claim may allow you to recover compensation for your pain and suffering, rather than just reimbursement for economic losses (which is what workers’ compensation provides).
Let us investigate your work-related head injury to discover the true causes of your fall, vehicle accident or accident involving heavy machinery.
When Law Offices of Andrew B. Shin advises you after a head injury at work, we will take your losses seriously, no matter how mild or severe the damage to your brain seems to be. Thanks to our law firm’s 25 years of practice, we know that any head injury is serious and we understand that someone recovering from a head injury deserves serious representation.
