When to get a lawyer for TBI workers’ compensation?

While any New Jersey workplace accident can have a serious impact on a worker’s life, those involving traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) are among the most serious. Traumatic brain injuries range in severity, and part of the challenge when dealing with a TBI is understanding the full effect that the injury has on a person’s life.
 
Workers who believe they suffered a TBI should immediately reach out to a workers’ compensation attorney for assistance. TBIs are complex injuries that may not result in immediately apparent symptoms, even when there may have been serious, long-term damage to the brain.
 
The problem with waiting until the onset of severe symptoms before contacting a lawyer is that it casts doubt on a worker’s claim. For example, if you wait until a month after a workplace accident to meet with a lawyer, your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance carrier may argue that something other than the workplace accident caused your symptoms. Remember, it is your burden to establish that your injury was work-related, and if you wait too long to file a claim, this can be difficult to prove. Moreover, waiting to report your symptoms can also allow the other side to claim that you did not think your injuries were serious at the time of the accident, potentially decreasing any benefits you would otherwise be entitled to.
 
If you injured your head in a New Jersey workplace accident, obtaining prompt medical care is crucial, not only for your health but also for your workers’ compensation claim.
