Most closed head injuries can be difficult to diagnose because there are often no outward signs of injury. Many times, the injured individual does not even realize that he or she is suffering. In the past, we have been contacted by the injured worker's loved ones for help. There are several symptoms that an individual might express, including:
- Change in personality
- Mood swings
- Inability to maintain focus
- Loss of memory
- Inability to multitask
- Loss of ability to speak
- Reduction in cognitive ability
- Loss of higher-order functioning of the brain
With any brain injury, it is important to get the right diagnostic tests delivered by skilled medical professionals. We can help ensure you get the proper tests, and that your diagnosis is complete, accurate and evaluates your long-term chances for recovery. Workers' compensation benefits exist to help individuals pay medical bills and recover lost wages for injuries suffered while on the job. An attorney at our office can guide you through the process of recovering monetary benefits.
