Our workers’ comp and disability attorneys have vast experience handling head injury claims

New York workers’ compensation law covers injuries to workers during the course of their employment and covers most activities. The problem with some injuries, such as concussions, is that it can be difficult to determine when we are fit to resume work. You might be declared fit for work when you actually are not, which can be risky and put our lives and the lives of others in danger. Our law firm is familiar with head injuries deriving from various accidents, commonly involving:

  • Ladder and scaffolding falls
  • Slip and falls
  • Struck by object
  • Assault or violent act of another
  • Vision and hearing loss that accumulates over time
  • Car accidents from job-related travel

If you have a head injury from one of these or any other work-related accident, we can help you obtain the benefits you need.
