Skilled Legal Guidance For Those With Closed Head Injuries
A closed head injury is merely one that does not fracture the skull. It does not take much trauma to the head to cause lasting and serious impairment, though X-rays, CT scans and MRIs do not show the damage.
Closed head injuries are similar to a severe concussion. They frequently occur in the workplace. The victim is briefly unconscious and then suffers headaches and short-term memory problems. Neurologists generally wait several months to see if symptoms fade. If not, the victim undergoes a battery of tests to diagnose the condition.
At this point, cognitive retraining is usually recommended. This is an attempt to assist the sufferer in adjusting to daily life with memory loss and other problems. A notepad, for example, can be helpful as a reminder of tasks to do and directions to places one needs to go.
For long-term medical conditions caused by a work injury or head injury, hire a lawyer who can effectively obtain the workers’ compensation and Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits you deserve. Attorney Chad Lawrence worked in insurance defense before founding The Lawrence Law Firm, so he knows how to handle these challenging cases. While other law firms handle only Social Security Disability or workers’ compensation cases, The Lawrence Law Firm handles both.
