Michigan Work Traumatic Brain Injury Lawyer
Did You Suffer a TBI at Work?
Difficulty concentrating. Memory loss. Confusion. Mood disorders and personality changes. Depression. Inability to focus or find the right words. A person who suffers a traumatic brain injury (TBI) on the job can experience many serious symptoms, yet still face opposition from workers’ compensation insurance companies. CAT scans often do not show the full extent of an injury, and symptoms may not appear until months later. How, then, can you obtain benefits that fairly compensate for your significant loss?
At the Adler Firm, PLLC, we have a strong network of experienced medical experts who can testify to the extent of your brain injury. We also have more than 35 years of experience pursuing fair compensation on behalf of seriously injured individuals in Traverse City and the Detroit metro/tri-county area. Turn to our Michigan traumatic brain injury attorneys for your workers’ compensation claim.
What Are the Major Causes of Head Injuries in the Workplace?
Some of the most common causes of brain injuries in the workplace include:
- Vehicle accidents - Whether driving heavy machinery on a construction site or working as a delivery driver, car accidents are a common cause of traumatic brain injuries in the workplace
- Slip and falls - Slip and fall accidents occur in nearly any work environment, from office buildings to construction zones; because victims often hit their head during their fall, this is another common cause of TBI's in the workplace
- Defective equipment - Head injuries are also common in manufacturing plants or assembly lines where heavy machinery can sometimes be defective or fail as a result of poor maintenance and cause serious injuries
- Explosions - Factories, oil rigs, and construction sites are all common areas where explosions can occur; head injuries may be sustained if victims are flung in the air or are pelted with debris after the explosion
What Can I Recover in a TBI Work Injury Case?
Every workers’ compensation case is different. We cannot tell you exactly how much you will recover after a traumatic brain injury.
We can, however, explain what you are entitled to under the law, including compensation for:
- Necessary and reasonable medical care for your TBI
- In-home assistance, including assistance from family members
- Wages you have lost as a result of your TBI (typically, 80% of your weekly pay)
You have enough to worry about right now—let us help you with your workers’ compensation case and take as much of the financial burden off your shoulders as is legally possible.
We understand the financial challenges you may be facing. That is why we take cases on a contingency fee basis. You will not pay us a dime unless and until we recover compensation for you.
