Workers’ Comp Head Injury Claims
If you or someone you know is suffering from a work-related head injury, the worker’s compensation lawyers at Nowlan & Mouat LLP can help.
A head injury is one of the most serious types of work-related injuries you can have. Oftentimes, work-related head injuries can cause long-term symptoms such as; dizziness, headaches, seizures and sensitivity to light and sound and short term memory loss. These symptoms make it difficult for you to communicate, concentrate and problem-solve while on-the-job or at home and could easily end your career or prevent you from being able to work.
The worst thing is, it is not even your fault. You were just in the wrong place at the wrong time. All it took was a defective piece of work equipment, machine or tool on the production line malfunctioning or causing you to fall, slip or trip, for you to seriously injure yourself on-the-job and be out of work.
Fortunately, you are entitled to workers' compensation benefits in the state of Wisconsin. You have the right to be reimbursed for any medical bills, out-of-pocket expenses and lost wages caused by your work-related head injury.
But just because Wisconsin state law entitles you to collect workers' compensation benefits does not always mean that you will be able to receive them with a hassle. Your employer may deny that you injured yourself at work or your health insurance provider may deny you coverage for your medical care. That’s when we come in.
Our workers' compensation attorneys advocate on your behalf to help you obtain the compensation you are owed so you can return to your life the way it was before your accident.
