Financial Security after a Head Injury at Work

You were working like any other day, then everything changed in an instant.

An injury to your head ended your work day—and disrupted your life.

Head injuries must be taken seriously. In fact, the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation listed traumatic brain injuries among the most serious workplace injuries in the state in 2018.

You should be getting workers’ compensation benefits, including checks for lost wages and coverage for your medical bills, so after any head injury at work you can continue to live the secure life you worked hard to earn.

The problem is, sometimes employers and the workers’ comp system work against you.

The lawyers at Horenstein, Nicholson & Blumenthal are here to make sure you get all the financial support you’re entitled to receive.

We don’t represent companies or the government. We help real people.

That’s why they say “Helping me, that’s HNB.”

Types of Head Injuries on the Job

It doesn’t matter how it happened or who was at fault, if you were hurt as an employee in Ohio, you’re eligible for workers’ compensation for head injuries.

The attorneys at HNB have helped people with all of these kinds of head injuries and more:

  • Concussions
  • Post-concussion syndrome
  • Closed-head injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Psychological conditions

Head injuries can cause serious physical effects and emotional and psychological effects like depression, anxiety, mood swings, memory problems, and more.

Even if your head injury doesn’t seem like the most serious case, this isn’t the time to shy away from seeking every form of help you can get. These injuries can make a long-term impact on your life.

For a workers’ comp case, you’ll need evidence proving your injury happened at work and showing how it affects your life.

If your injury resulted from the negligent actions of someone other than a co-worker, like the other driver in a car accident that happened while you were driving for work, you could also have a personal injury claim on top of a workers’ comp claim.

Let the team at the HNB law firm look at your case and make a plan to protect your financial future.

We’ll provide an honest assessment of your case for free.

What To Do Right after a Workplace Head Injury

To give yourself the strongest workers’ comp case, take these steps immediately after a workplace injury:

  • Report your injury to your supervisor.
  • Complete a written injury report and get a copy.
  • Get medical treatment as soon as possible.
  • Tell the doctor every detail of what happened.
  • Make sure your workers’ comp claim gets filed. You, your employer or your doctor can do it.
  • Don’t let your employer pay you directly to avoid filing a claim. Filing a claim protects your rights.
  • Get an experienced workers’ comp attorney.

When you work with an experienced workers’ comp lawyer from HNB, you’ve got someone to make sure forms get filed properly, deadlines get met, and your claim is handled correctly so a mistake doesn’t threaten the benefits you deserve.

If your claim gets rejected, having an attorney also means you’ve got someone to fight for you, including in an appeals hearing at the Ohio Industrial Commission—if that’s what it takes to win benefits.

After a head injury alters your work life, we’ll work hard to get you the compensation you deserve.
