Head & Brain Injuries
Representing the legal rights of people who sustain on-the-job head and brain injuries
In severe cases, an injury to the head can leave victims with significant mental or physical limitations that may prevent them from ever returning to work again. Even less-serious injuries can result in significant medical expenses and loss of income for an extended period of time. Fortunately, when these injuries are sustained at work, employees are often legally entitled to benefits under the South Carolina’s workers’ compensation laws.
Employers and workers’ compensation carriers may try to limit their exposure when presented with claims. Carriers sometimes offer injured employees settlements which preclude workers from pursuing further benefits with respect to that injury. Therefore, it is imperative that workers retain legal counsel in order to ensure that they receive the benefits to which they are entitled under the law.
Head & brain injuries can be caused by a variety of workplace accidents and hazardous conditions
Workplace accidents are a daily occurrence in the United States. The Bureau of Labor Statistics indicates that there were more than three million nonfatal workplace injuries throughout the country during a single year. There are many types of accidents and dangerous conditions that could potentially result in a head or brain injury, including the following:
- Slip and fall accidents
- Incidents involving defective work tools
- Falls from heights
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Defective scaffolding
- Defective safety equipment
- Liquid spills
- Open and unmarked excavations
- Improper flooring material
