Recovering Workers’ Comp Benefits Following A Head Injury
A sudden blow to the head can happen in a downtown office as easily as on a construction site. When a workplace accident results in a serious head injury, the impact on the injured party’s life can be significant. Side effects can include brain damage, chronic headaches, loss of memory and an inability to remain focused on tasks.
Extensive medical treatment may be necessary and completing your job responsibilities may become too much to handle. You may be able to recover workers’ compensation benefits to cover 100 percent of your medical expenses and a portion of any lost wages. In addition, a person who suffers a traumatic brain injury or other serious head injury may be able to collect temporary or permanent disability benefits.
Head Injuries Are Medically Complex, Which Makes Them Also Legally Complex
Diagnosing and properly treating head injuries is extremely complex. It is critical to receive the right medical attention for these injuries, and equally important to enlist experienced legal counsel that can help guide you through the workers’ compensation process. At Cullen Legal in Bristol, we help injured workers maximize the amount of benefits they recover in Pennsylvania workers’ compensation cases.
Attorney Robert L. Cullen takes a personal interest in every client. He combines “big-firm smarts” with boutique-firm service and attention. We understand the stress that results from being injured, unable to work and facing the same bills you have always had plus new medical bills. We work to eliminate much of this stress by tackling all aspects of your workers’ compensation claim and helping you receive the medical care you need.
We Build Strong Cases To Maximize Results
The effects of head injuries can linger for months or years. It is important to seek treatment for your injury as soon as possible and to continue treatment as long as doctors recommend. As your workers’ compensation lawyer, Robert Cullen will invest the time to develop a thorough report that presents accurate information. Our focus is on ensuring your long-term physical and financial health, not on a quick-strike settlement that does not serve your best interests.
