Des Moines Attorneys Who Protect Workers With Head Injuries

Medical professionals will tell you brain damage is often the first injury to occur in an accident, but the last to be diagnosed. The harsh truth is many doctors simply don’t think to look deeply enough when treating an injured worker immediately following a work accident. Symptoms of a concussion, hematoma or other closed-head wounds can take days or weeks to surface but last a lifetime. In many cases, the worker’s family, friends and co-workers are the first to notice symptoms of slurred speech, cognitive impairment and memory loss.

Is A Loved One Showing Signs Of A Brain Injury After A Work Accident?

If your spouse or another family member is covered under an employer’s workers’ compensation insurance, they are entitled to receive paid medical treatment by a workers’ compensation-approved medical provider. Typically, workers must report a workplace accident and injuries immediately to receive workers’ compensation benefits. Brain injury symptoms, however, may not appear right away. If you notice symptoms such as blurred vision, change in personality, short-term memory loss or any other abnormality, have your loved one report the concerns to their employer and seek medical attention for a complete diagnosis right away.

Yes, you can afford a lawyer. We do not ask for any money upfront from our clients. We get paid only a low percentage of the monetary damages we help you recover in a workers’ comp settlement. If we can’t help you obtain a settlement, you will not pay lawyers’ fees.

By helping them get maximum money benefits from every available option, we often help our clients receive significantly more money than if they had not hired us. Even after our fees, our clients generally come out ahead of where they would have been if they tried to handle the claim themselves.
