The Center for Disease Control and Prevention defines traumatic brain injury as “a disruption in the normal function of the brain that can be caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head, or penetrating head injury.” Common causes of TBI in the workplace include but are not limited to: falls from any height, falling objects (e.g. tools, debris, other workers), and motor vehicle crashes.

According to top experts, approximately 150 people die from brain-related injuries in the U.S. every day. That’s roughly 55,000 deaths per year. A staggering number, but still less than the millions of ER visits that occur each year as a result of work-related brain injuries.

To learn more on TBI and how it can affect you physically, mentally, and emotionally, speak with an experienced personal injury attorney today. Call 1-800-966-4999.

It won’t cost you a thing and may save you tomorrow.

Common causes of work-related brain injuries

In NYC — the skyscraper capital of the world — work-related brain injuries can be caused by a number of factors, ranging from unsafe working conditions to basic human error. Examples include but are not limited to:

(1) Falls from any height — Whether 100 feet above, 100 feet below, or at ground level, brain injuries can and do occur from all heights. So much so that in a given year falls will typically account for nearly half of all TBI-related hospitalizations.

(2) Impact objects — You’re near a construction site or on the job when a falling object comes crashing down, injuring your head. If this happens, please know: You are protected by the law!

(3) Slip, trip, and fall accidents — These often occur on sidewalks or steps that are broken, cracked, raised, or slippery due to a failure to maintain, repair, and/or clear snow, ice, garbage, or debris in a timely manner.

(4) Motor vehicle crashes — According to the CDC, car accidents are responsible for nearly a quarter of all TBI-related hospitalizations in the U.S. They occur at both high and low speeds, on highways and in parking lots, and can be a byproduct of defective parts (such as brakes), unsafe driving conditions, human error, and more.

(5) Inadequate safety equipment and/or protective devices — Under Labor Law § 240(1), New York workers are entitled to “devices which shall be so constructed, placed, and operated as to give proper protection to a person so employed or directed.” Sadly, when violations occur, workers are exposed to worksite dangers that can result in accidents, injury, and even death.

Of note: If you or someone you love has been injured on the job, you have the right to seek benefits under New York’s workers’ compensation law. But don’t delay, as your window to recoup financial losses may soon close.

To learn more about workers’ compensation benefits, work-related brain injuries, and how to protect you and your family’s financial future, call 1-800-966-4999 for a free consultation with one of our experienced workers’ compensation attorneys today.

Symptoms of a work-related brain injury

While there is no set list of the physical and emotional pains an injured worker may suffer, symptoms can include:

Abrupt unconsciousness

Diminished consciousness

Muscle weaknesses

Loss of vision

Change in speech

Additionally, in even the mildest of cases, suffering may occur mentally as well as physically, with conditions ranging from:

  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Alteration in mental states (e.g. mood swings, disorientation, sudden outbursts)
  • Acute stress disorder (ASD)
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Substance abuse disorder (SAD)

Work-related brain injuries are a serious matter that require serious attention. If injured, it is of the highest priority to receive proper medical care so that you may focus on personal recovery. An experienced personal injury attorney can ensure that this is made possible.
Financial losses caused by work-related brain injuries in NYC
