- Freight & shipping
- Trucking & transport

Symptoms of Head Injuries
As you can imagine, there is no limit to how many things can be affected by even a minor head injury. An injured brain can be difficult or impossible to cure, especially in the short-term. Workplace head injuries can lead to all sorts of symptoms, including:
- Sensory impairment or loss
- Speech problems
- Paralysis or loss of feeling
- Memory or cognitive function loss
- Impaired physical or functional ability
Handle Your Claim with Care
Head injuries, especially of the traumatic variety, can take time to properly diagnose and treat. You may need to undergo one or more surgeries, attend physical and mental rehabilitation sessions, and adjust your life to accommodate the effects of the accident.
Because it is quite possible that you will need extended or lifelong medical care relative to this injury and might not be able to return to work, it’s crucial that you work with an experienced workers’ compensation attorney from the very beginning to ensure you receive the benefits you will need going forth. Don’t wait to get the help you need and deserve.
