How easily could a brain injury occur at work

Work-related injuries can come in many forms. While some people who do not have inherently risky job may not consider the various harm that could come to them while working, it is all too easy for a serious injury to befall any California worker. In fact, a serious brain injury could even result due to a work-related accident.

When it comes to traumatic brain injuries, 24% of such injuries occur due to work-related incidents. Concussions in particular are not unusual, and they commonly result from the following accidents:

  • Motor vehicle accidents
  • Workers falling, slipping or tripping
  • Workers being hit on the head by an object

Any time a work accident occurs, seeking medical attention is wise. In cases of possible brain injuries, a medical professional can conduct a thorough examination and determine whether such an injury has occurred. Even if symptoms do not present themselves immediately, an injured worker can gain information about what concerns to watch out for.

Unfortunately, a brain injury, even a mild concussion, can cause serious issues in a California worker’s life. Time off work is often needed to recover, and workers may need to slowly return to their regular duties to avoid overexertion when they are cleared to return to work. Of course, taking time off work can be difficult due to the financial concerns it could present, but fortunately, workers’ compensation may be able to help injured workers address certain financial matters, including medical bills and lost wages, as they recover from the harm suffered.
