Work-Related Brain Injuries

Charlotte, North Carolina, Workers' Compensation Attorneys

The workers' compensation system is in place to provide compensation for individuals who have been injured on the job. In turn, the employee cannot sue the employer. However, if a third party is responsible for the accident, the injured party can pursue additional compensation through a personal injury claim.

If you have suffered a brain injury at work, The Sasser Law Firm in Charlotte, North Carolina, can help. The law firm has a thorough understanding of the causes of work-related brain injuries, and how to seek maximum compensation on behalf of accident victims. Brain injuries are life-changing injuries, so it is important to work with an attorney who has a clear understanding of your short- and long-term needs and goals.

Work-Related Brain Injuries

The Sasser Law Firm represents workers who have suffered two types of brain injuries on the job:

  • Process-Oriented Brain Injuries — Most work-related brain injuries are process oriented. That is, they are caused by a sudden injury at work — not by long-term exposure. Outside trauma from a fall, falling object, or other blunt force can cause a brain injury. Fast acceleration or deceleration can also cause a serious brain injury. This can happen in a car accident or any other accident that suddenly causes an individual who has been stationary or traveling at a high speed to suddenly accelerate or stop.
  • Disease-Related Brain Injuries — This refers to brain injuries that have been caused by workplace exposure. Instead of a sudden injury caused by blunt force to the head, for example, disease-related brain injuries are a gradual disease process. Certain chemical exposure at work, for example, may cause or contribute to a brain disease or disorder.

If you have suffered traumatic brain injury (TBI), a concussion, whiplash, a closed head injury, or other brain injury at work, The Sasser Law Firm can help you seek workers' compensation benefits. The firm has represented workers in a variety of industries throughout North and South Carolina: manufacturing workers, industrial workers, machinery operators, construction workers and more.
