Sometimes the most severe and debilitating work-related injuries are the ones you cannot see. Closed head trauma is one such injury. Closed head work-related injuries often are accompanied by headaches, dizziness, memory loss, confusion, and difficulty speaking. Workplace head injuries can happen in many different ways. They can result from a fall, such as a fall through a roof or ceiling, from a scaffold or downstairs. You may have sustained your injury after being struck by a falling object or when equipment has failed, i.e. scaffolding or shelving collapse. Brain damage is not always apparent at first. Therefore, it is critical to report any accident involving a head injury to the employer immediately. It is also imperative to have the right doctors – neurologists and other specialists – examine you to diagnose the extent of your head injury. As a result of your work-related traumatic brain injury, you may also experience psychological problems, such as outbursts, mood swings, personality change, anxiety, and depression, entitling you to a workers’ compensation “mental impairment” claim.
