Sometimes, workplace injuries are immediately evident, such as those which involve a broken bone or serious burn. However, some jobsite injuries take longer to become visible, including repetitive strain injuries and traumatic brain injuries. If you have suffered a head injury in San Bernardino, or a workplace anywhere in California, it is very important for you to explore your options. For example, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation. At Kampf, Schiavone & Associates, we are very familiar with the challenges that injured workers frequently endure (medical bills, the loss of a job, physical pain, etc.).
If you are involved in an on-the-job incident that results in a TBI, your life may change in all sorts of ways. Perhaps you will have trouble remembering things that are important or suffer from headaches that never seem to go away. To make matters worse, you could find yourself out of work and be unable to land a new opportunity. If you have experienced any of these challenges, you should take whatever steps you can to recover, which may include filing a workers’ compensation claim.
If you are able to receive workers’ comp, your life may turn around. You could have your medical costs covered and be able to obtain monetary compensation, which may help you move on from the accident. However, you need to review your options right away, since there are time limits in place. On our workers’ compensation page, you can take a look at more information related to traumatic brain injuries.
