Workers’ Compensation for Workplace Brain Injuries

Many people suffer traumatic brain injuries in workplace accidents without realizing it. Family members are often the first to notice signs that their loved one is not the same after the accident. If you think your family member may have suffered a brain injury in an accident that was employment-related, an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer at Midwest Disability Work Comp, P.A., can help your loved one receive the medical care and compensation he or she needs. From our law office in Coon Rapids, we represent workers in Minneapolis, St. Paul and throughout Minnesota who have suffered brain injuries in workplace accidents.

Diagnosing A Brain Injury

A person does not have to suffer a concussion or even lose consciousness to suffer a brain injury. A fall, a blow to the head or sudden acceleration-deceleration trauma such as hard whiplash can cause brain damage, even when there is no outward sign of injury. Symptoms of a brain injury may include:

  • Personality changes such as irritability
  • Difficulty following instructions
  • Sleeplessness or sleeping more than usual
  • Headaches
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Loss of short-term memory

Many family members delay seeking treatment, hoping that the symptoms will go away with time. However, the symptoms may be permanent and can affect your loved one’s ability to work and earn a living. Brain damage may not show up on a CT scan. You may need a specialist such as a neuropsychologist to determine if a functional impairment has occurred after a workplace brain injury.
