What Causes Head Injuries at Work?
Our skull protects the brain, with a layer of cerebrospinal fluid that
separating the skull from the soft tissue, which is sensitive and vulnerable
to potential damage, such as a concussion. A head injury such as a concussion
does not have immediate symptoms but is one of the most severe head injuries
that can take place, due to sudden or jarring movements to cause our brains
to hit the skull.
These occupations tend to have a high risk of head injuries to employees:
- Construction workers
- Loading dock workers
- Offshore workers and seamen
After you have been injured, your first priority is to seek medical attention.
Remember that the symptoms of a head injury, especially a concussion,
may not be apparent right away. Once your doctor prescribes a course of
treatment, you should consult with our Medford head injury lawyers to
determine if you have grounds for a claim.
What Can I Recover?

types of injuries. Because of this, it is in your best interests to retain
