Causes of Head Injuries at Work
When a person sustains a head injury, they may require substantial medical care. Depending on the extent of the injury and where it occurs, a person may lose mobility, develop severe pain, and even lose cognitive abilities. An employer may be held responsible for these injuries in the following instances:
- If construction safety standards for objects at a certain height or loose objects aren’t observed
- If building and ceiling fixture safety regulations aren’t followed
- If heavy objects are stored too high for employees to safely
- If sufficient safety head gear isn’t provided when needed
Among other problems, these instances of failing to take action to help employees stay safe may be grounds for legal action against that employer. If successful, a personal injury claim can provide much-needed compensation for the undue losses and suffering a person is undergoing.
A head injury at work may leave you with substantial medical bills, out-of-pocket expenses, and lost wages. However, compensation may be available through an injury lawsuit.
