Industrial environments are not always as safe as they should be. Heavy industries like construction…
Imagine walking into work like any other day. You clock in, get ready as usual, and then prepare to stock up the shelves. But today is a little different because your supervisor comes over and alerts you to some boxes that need to be moved as soon as possible. These boxes are in a precarious position, one that could lead to people suffering injuries if they were to fall. So here you are, placed in a dangerous position yourself so that you can clear out these boxes.
As you move the boxes, though, one of them falls on your head, and you are knocked out. You feel woozy and “off” the rest of the day. Your supervisors take care of you and tell you to go home — but as the days pass and they turn into weeks, you are still feeling “out of it.”
You’ve suffered a traumatic brain injury, and as such, you need time to recover. You also need to consider your legal options in the wake of such a workplace accident. California workers’ compensation can help you in this regard, but even the most straightforward and seemingly “easy” claims can end up leading to denials.
For injured workers in such a position, the attorneys at Koszdin, Fields, Sherry & Katz are here to help you. They have stood up to insurance companies and employers for more than 60 years, serving the Los Angeles area since 1955. Don’t let your concerns go wanting — consult with an workers’ compensation attorney and have your voice heard.
