Head Injuries and Severity

The symptoms you experience following a brain injury are dependent on the level of your injury’s severity. There are typically three levels of severity you may be diagnosed with after the injury, including the following:

  • Mild traumatic brain injury: A mild traumatic brain injury may be considered something like a concussion. It’s not the most severe, but it can still have significant impacts on your physical, sensory, and mental abilities. Some symptoms you may experience can include loss of consciousness or confusion, difficulty sleeping, nausea, headache, blurred vision, memory problems, mood changes, and more.

  • Moderate traumatic brain injury: When you suffer a moderate traumatic brain injury, you may lose consciousness for a few minutes or even a couple of hours. You can have worsening nausea, constant headaches, head pain that worsens, coordination issues, and agitation. The damages you experience from a moderate traumatic brain injury can last much longer and impact various aspects of your life.

  • Severe traumatic brain injury: A severe traumatic brain injury can have life-altering or threatening effects. For instance, this severe injury can lead to convulsions and seizures, a coma, numbness in extremities, and more. Unfortunately, a severe TBI can negatively impact your ability to do some of your normal, daily activities. 

Over time, the symptoms associated with your injuries can worsen, and you may experience trouble with cognitive abilities (such as your focus and concentration), motor function (ability to use limbs and do certain things. Working with our skilled Los Angeles brain injury lawyer team, especially when you suffer this kind of injury at work, can help you pursue the compensation you need and deserve following the complex problems that often arise in legal matters.

Work Accidents Leading to Brain Injuries

Suffering a work injury is never easy. There are several types of accidents that can lead to a brain injury. However, with a head injury lawyer, you can show how negligence can occur in the workplace and determine your options to take legal action. Here are some of the work accidents that can cause you to suffer significant harm:

  • Slip and falls: When floors are slippery due to spills, lifted rugs, cracked cement, and more are present in workplaces, they can cause a worker to slip and fall. When someone slips and falls, they can slam the back of their head on the floor, causing significant brain damage.

  • Falls from heights: Some industries, such as construction, can require workers to do their jobs at a high location. Unfortunately, without proper safety equipment, it can lead to a fall that causes a worker to land on their head. This type of head injury can have some of the most damaging effects. 

  • Falling objects: Another problem in various industries can be falling objects. Some objects, when not secured, can fall onto a worker and significantly damage their head. A falling object can also pierce the skull, causing a penetrating brain injury, constant bleeding, and other problems. 

  • Defective machinery: Many industries require workers to use machinery made by third-party companies. Unfortunately, these machines can experience defects, leading to parts breaking off, explosions, or other problems. Some of the defects that arise can lead to a severe brain injury. 

  • Heavy machinery accidents: Heavy machinery accidents — such as caught in between accidents — can lead to head injuries. Some can cause significant brain injuries such as internal bleeding, pressure, and more.

Nobody should ever have to worry about an injury occurring at work, but it does happen. When it does, you should recognize your rights to pursue compensation and learn what options exist. In a workplace injury, you most often go through workers’ compensation claims to pursue compensation through your employer’s insurance provider. However, there are some instances that can give you the ability to file a lawsuit against a third-party company should they cause your injury.
