The Impact Of Workplace Head Injury
Head injuries at work are most often the result of either a fall, slip, trip or something falling on the worker. Injuries can range from a concussion to a traumatic brain injury. The impact of these injuries can be extensive including, but not limited to:
- Seizures including post-traumatic epilepsy
- Memory loss
- Impaired motor function
- Impaired cognitive function
- Vision impairment or loss
- Hearing impairment or loss
- Difficulties concentrating
- Difficulties with balance
Workers With Head Injuries Often Develop Hidden Disabilities
Anytime someone is struck on the head, regardless of whether the impact seems to be minor or major, they can suffer a significant disability. Often they do not realize the impact on the brain.
Not every aspect of the injury is immediately apparent. Sometimes there are hidden disabilities that develop over time. Workers often do not realize they are disabled until some time later.
People often experience ongoing problems from head injuries, including difficulties with judgment, reasoning, learning, organization, and decision-making. In severe cases of traumatic brain injury there may be changes in a person’s personality. It is not uncommon for people with head injuries to experience emotional challenges, including depression, anxiety, insomnia and irritability.
