Most employees have suffered a “near-miss” at work: a belt snapping back an inch from your hand, or a heavy crate landing next to you instead of on you. You counted your lucky stars, but thought no more about it—until the day that box, that tool or the floor made contact with the back of your head.
It’s unfortunately a common story: most head injuries are a result of sudden trauma. These accidents usually involve an object striking the skull, but there are many ways victims can suffer head injuries in a Texas workplace. For instance:
- A fall from a great height, such as a shelf or ladder
- Slip-and-fall accident on work property
- Fallen objects landing on the head, neck or shoulders of an employee
- An explosion or blast that suddenly propels a worker backward
- Work environments that have a lack of oxygen or other potential toxic element
- Car accidents while traveling or making deliveries for an employer
As board-certified Texas injury lawyers, we know that it is vital to identify all possible problems our clients may face as a result of their head injury. A traumatic brain injury victim has a much better chance at full recovery if the injury is identified and treated early, but in many Channelview head injury cases, the person will assume he is “Fine” after the accident, delaying much-needed medical care.
If left untreated, head injury victims often struggle with chronic functional problems in the future, including:
- Chronic headaches
- Loss of sensation
- Loss of brain function
Our Channelview work injury attorneys have seen the suffering these injuries can cause. In addition to the pain of the injury, victims will often become depressed, suffer psychological effects and endure personality changes—conditions that require even more costly medical treatment.
