Head Trauma and Brain Injuries

Experienced Guidance for Workers' Comp Claims

Brain damage can be subtle, and the effects can be devastating on an injured person's ability to work. Because brain damage can be difficult to diagnose, and the symptoms difficult to identify, obtaining workers' compensation benefits for brain injuries received on the job can be challenging.

If you suspect your loved one has suffered head trauma or a brain injury in a work-related accident, contact Jerome, Gibson, Stewart, Stevenson, Engle & Runbeck, P.C., for help. Our Phoenix brain injury attorneys each have decades of experience. We will provide you with guidance to ensure that your claim is properly developed and that your rights are protected throughout the process. We will not charge a fee until you are awarded benefits.

Early Representation Is Important

It is important to report an accident involving a head injury to a supervisor, and to be evaluated by doctors who have the training and experience to properly diagnose a head injury. Brain damage may have a wide range of symptoms that appear only through testing and exams, including:

  • Impaired vision
  • Speech troubles
  • Memory loss, cognitive deficits and difficulty concentrating
  • Problems with balance
  • Psychological problems such as personality changes, depression and mood swings

These symptoms can prevent an employee from returning to work after an injury, making a successful workers' compensation claim all the more important. Contacting an attorney early in the process can avoid later problems with claims.

Our lawyers can provide advice and guidance from the start to the end of a claim. If the insurance carrier's treating doctor does not cooperate, our lawyers can advocate for appropriate specialists to provide the treatments needed by workers with brain injuries. We understand how to best ward off attempts by insurers to deny or reduce benefits.
