Oklahoma City Construction Head and Brain Injury Lawyers

Hard hats are one of the most easily recognizable symbols of construction work. They are essential to protecting a construction worker’s head against impacts from falling objects, mishandled tools, collapsing structures, and other dangers. Unfortunately, they cannot guarantee that injuries will be avoided, and there are some accidents that occur on sites where hard hats are not deemed necessary. As a consequence, construction workers may suffer head or brain injuries on the job, and the effects of these incidents may require significant medical care for the remainder of a person’s life.

If you have been injured while working on a construction site, you may be entitled to compensation. These funds can help to counter the adverse financial effects of lost work time and may also pay for medical expenses.

The Consequences of Brain Injury from a Construction Accident

There are few injuries which have the potential to be as devastating as those which affect the brain. Damage to brain tissue does not heal in the same way that many other wounds do, and while a construction worker who is seriously hurt might experience some improvement in his or her condition, a total recovery is unlikely. The consequences of brain injury may include:

  • Compromised motor control
  • Depression
  • Radical changes in personality
  • Memory loss and difficulty with memory formation
  • Impaired cognitive function
  • Loss of linguistic capacities

If you or someone you love has suffered a brain injury while working on a construction site, you may be eligible to receive compensation for medical bills, lost wages and other related expenses.
