A head injury is often the result of an automobile accident, fall, sport accident, or other violent act. If you suffered a head injury on the job, your employer’s workers’ compensation insurer will cover the medical care and expenses and, if a third party contributed, you may also be able to pursue a claim against that third party. If you have suffered a traumatic brain injury, contact the Law Office of Paul Houser, Jr. for a free consultation.
