Traumatic brain injuries on the job can happen several ways:
After a head injury at work, symptoms such as passing out, headaches, vision loss, nausea, slurred speech, convulsions, numbness in extremities, confusion, loss of coordination and dilated pupils may be signs of a TBI.
A challenge of a workers’ compensation head injury case is that some of those symptoms may take time to appear.
They’re not always as obvious as visible bruises or cuts. But for a workers’ comp claim, your injury must be directly tied to something that happened at work.
You may need witness accounts of how your injury happened, along with medical records from doctors about your medical condition after a brain injury.

Industries and jobs in which workers experience the most head injuries nationally, in Bureau of Labor Statistics reports, include these:
Many of those jobs also report the highest numbers of overall injuries that lead to lost work time in Louisiana, such as manufacturing, transportation, retail, health care, and tourism and hospitality.
Those jobs involve their own special hazards, but just about any job in Louisiana is covered by head injury workers’ compensation.
All employers in Louisiana must carry workers’ comp insurance. And the main requirement for getting workers’ comp benefits is being injured on the job.
It’s that simple. But sometimes employers and workers’ comp insurance companies make it complicated. They may try to delay, reduce or deny your benefits.
Your workers’ comp attorney from Workers’ Compensation, LLC, can counter their moves and protect you from having financial support that you deserve pulled away from you.
Workers’ compensation for a brain injury can make a major difference in your life, giving you the foundation you need to focus on your own well-being and move beyond this trauma.
