When people think of head injuries they may first consider jobs like construction workers where there are lots of heavy material moving high in the air. Other jobs that may include a roofer, building window cleaner, or stock worker. They tend to be at risk for more head injuries as, like the construction worker, they are working around places where there opportunities of falling from heights or having something fall onto their heads. Even though those occupations are higher in risk, there are other occupations that can result in head injuries like dancers, office workers, retail and service industry workers, or educators.
Common Types Of Head Injuries
A head injury can be categorized as any blow, bump, or jolt to the head. Depending on the severity, the injury can also be categorized as a traumatic brain injury (TBI). A traumatic brain injury is a life-changing in the sense that they can cause permanent injury, short and long-term disability, and death. Concussions are the most common kind of head injury that usually happens from slip and falls or objects falling on to a person’s head.
Concussions are typically talked about in the sports community, but anyone who deals with some head trauma can have a concussion. For example, if you were to slip and fall on to your back, your head can bounce off the floor. If you were walking and there was something on the floor then you could slip easily. In an office that can be as simple as slipping on a pen that was left negligently on the floor. Or it can be as severe as a dancer slipping on stage due to moisture on the floor because there is sufficient air conditioning. Regardless of how the accident occurred, if it happened in the workplace then there are certain benefits that are you are entitled to and which your company, employer, or insurance company may not be completely honest with you about.
