Types of Head Injury Cases Our Broward County Workers' Compensation Firm Handles There are many types of workplace injuries, all of which are potentially life-changing, impacting not only your ability to work but also your overall quality of life. The Florida injury lawyers at Friedman Rodman Frank & Estrada handle various head injury cases to ensure our clients receive the medically reasonable and necessary medical care they deserve and past and future compensation benefits. Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI) TBIs are among the most severe head injuries. They can result from falls, being struck by an object, or other workplace accidents. Symptoms may range from mild concussions to severe cognitive impairments, affecting memory, coordination, and emotional regulation. Concussions Concussions are common in workplaces with high physical demands, such as construction sites or manufacturing plants. Even a minor blow to the head can result in significant symptoms like headaches, dizziness, and concentration difficulties, which may require extended recovery periods and long term monitoring by a medical professional. Skull Fractures Skull fractures occur when the bone is broken due to a severe impact, often resulting in bleeding in the brain. These injuries can be particularly dangerous as they may also involve brain damage. Symptoms include severe headaches, swelling, and bruising around the injury site. Immediate medical attention and long-term care are often necessary. Contusions Contusions are bruises on the brain caused by a direct blow to the head. They can lead to swelling, bleeding, and pressure on the brain, which may require surgery to relieve. These injuries can occur in various settings, from industrial accidents to slips and falls in an office environment.


Hematomas involve blood pooling outside blood vessels, which can pressure the brain and be life-threatening if not treated promptly. They are typically caused by significant impacts or falls, resulting in prolonged hospital stays and rehabilitation.

Penetrating Injuries

Penetrating head injuries happen when an object pierces the skull and enters the brain. These injuries are often catastrophic and require immediate surgical intervention. They can occur in high-risk jobs involving machinery or tools, such as construction or manufacturing.

Post-Concussion Syndrome

Post-concussion syndrome can develop after a concussion and involve prolonged symptoms like headaches, dizziness, and cognitive difficulties lasting for weeks or months. This condition can significantly affect an individual's ability to return to work and requires ongoing medical and therapeutic support.

At Friedman Rodman Frank & Estrada, we are committed to helping you with your workers' compensation claim for head injuries. Our team will work tirelessly to ensure you receive the medical care and financial support you need during your recovery and after.

Occupations with a High Risk of Head Injuries

Due to the nature of the work involved, certain occupations are at a higher risk of head injuries. Understanding these risks is crucial for prevention and appropriate response if an injury occurs.

The CDC identifies several dangerous occupations, including the following:

  • Construction Workers
  • Truck Drivers
  • Building Services Workers
  • U.S. Service Members

Workers may need more time off if their job involves working from heights, exposure to explosions or projectiles, intense physical activity, tasks requiring concentration, driving, operating machinery, or working with hazardous materials. These activities can worsen symptoms or increase the chance of another brain injury during recovery.

It is essential that you consult with an experienced Workers' Compensation attorney to learn about your rights and remedies if you have suffered a head injury at work.

Client Reviews
Carolyn Frank and her firm represented me on a workers compensation injury case, under the defense base act. She did a excellent job from the moment I contacted her until 3 years later the case was settled. Every benefit I was entitled too, Carolyn fought hard to secure. E-mails and phone calls were always returned promptly. Definitely 5 star rating. Daniel
I can't express how grateful I am for Elizabeth Estrada, attorney, and Elizabeth Cantin, secretary, for all the hard work in order to defend me in my time of need. My lawyer and secretary spent time explaining each step and what was to be expected. Because of this I felt a part of the whole process and understood what was going on. Thank you so much for all your hard work!
