Head Injuries Are Complex Workers’ Comp Cases
If you or a loved one has suffered a head injury at work, you know all too well what the side effects of such an injury can do to a worker and his or her family. At Fishman & Fishman, LLC, we focus on helping the victims of head injuries, allowing them to move forward with the resources they need to make as full a recovery as possible. We have experience with head injury claims, from mild concussions to lasting brain damage.
Maximizing Compensation For Head Injury Victims In New Jersey
If your head injury took place on the job, we can help you pursue a workers’ compensation claim for wage loss and medical benefits. If a third party is responsible for the injury, we can also pursue a third-party personal injury claim for compensation such as medical costs, pain and suffering, and lost wages.
Our attorneys can handle the full spectrum of claims involving head injuries, including:
- Closed-head injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Fractured skulls
- Concussions and post-concussion syndrome
A good rule of thumb is to seek medical treatment anytime a person loses consciousness – even if it was momentary and even if the person feels fine. A loss of consciousness due to a blow to the head often is associated with a concussion or an even more severe brain injury. Symptoms can take time to develop, so the documentation early on can be a key factor in obtaining compensation.
Our lawyers will focus on documenting your case and demonstrating your need for benefits, taking into consideration your lost wages and how the injury will affect you for the rest of your life. Where necessary, we work with economists and other experts to build a strong case for the maximum verdict or settlement.
