Most head injuries occur when a worker is struck by a falling load, be it a tool, box, debris, or otherwise. Typically, these types of injuries are accidental, occurring because of negligent or even reckless behavior. However, regardless of the reason behind the accident, you should still be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits, and possibly more.
If you or a loved one has suffered a head or brain injury during a workplace accident, contact a Cedar Rapids head injury lawyer from Leehey Olson Law, P.C., today for help evaluating your case and determining the extent of your injuries and whether or not you are owed compensation.
Common Head and Brain Injuries
Some of the most common head and brain injuries that occur in the workplace can include:
- Traumatic brain injury
- Cranial hemorrhaging
- Skull fractures
- Cerebral contusions
An employer has a responsibility to ensure a safe workplace where employees can be free from the threat of bodily harm and injuries. Additionally, coworkers have the responsibility to refrain from negligent or reckless behavior that could cause harm to others. If either party fails to live up to these responsibilities, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits and more.
