Workplace head injuries need to be taken seriously. At JML Law, our Riverside head injury attorneys are ready to step in and help if you have been injured at work.

Head injuries can impact a victim for a lifetime, and the medical expenses are often tremendous. You and your family should never be on the line for covering the costs associated with a work injury.

What is workplace head injury?

A worker is injured every seven seconds in the United States. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, there were 2.8 million nonfatal workplace injuries or illnesses reported during the latest year of data available.

When we talk about head injuries in the workplace, we need to discuss the difference between visible injuries and non-visible injuries. Some head injuries are obvious when they happen because they result in trauma to the outside of the skull. These open head injuries can include lacerations, skull fractures, and skull penetrations. Closed head injuries are those that happen on the inside of the head to the brain due to a blow to the head. Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) can lead to long-lasting consequences. Concussions are considered mild TBIs.

Both visible and non-visible injuries can be present at the same time, which is why it is so important for a workplace head injury victim to receive immediate medical treatment.

If we look at a study published in the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine, we see that around 20% of work-related injuries involved a TBI.

What causes workplace head injuries?

Workplace head injuries happen in a variety of ways. While some industries pose a higher risk of head injuries than others, they can happen in any workplace. These injuries commonly occur due to:

  1. Motor vehicle crashes in work vehicles
  2. Falls (from one level to another or on the same level)
  3. Falling objects
  4. Tool mishaps
  5. And more

What are the long-term consequences of a head injury?

Brain injuries have both short- and long-term consequences. Serious head and brain injuries can lead to a range of complications, including:

  1. A loss of mobility to parts of your body
  2. Difficulties speaking
  3. Cognitive impairment
  4. Emotional instability
  5. Memory loss
  6. Permanent disfigurement
