Strong Legal Advocacy For Workers Who Suffered A Traumatic Brain Injury
One of the most traumatic, significant, and life-changing injuries you can suffer is a brain injury. An injury to the brain will affect every aspect of your work and day-to-day life. Sadly, traumatic brain injuries are a common hazard in many types of work, including construction, manufacturing and transportation. They are compensable under Iowa’s workers’ compensation system, but getting a brain injury claim approved is often more difficult than it should be.
In many cases, the insurance carrier and the employer simply do not believe the injured worker’s statements with regard to memory, concentration, and cognitive impairment. You will need an attorney who is experienced and ready to fight for you and your family. That’s why you should contact Wertz Law Firm, P.C. Our attorneys understand the lasting impact a work-related head injury can have on you and your entire family, and we work tirelessly to help you claim the benefits you are entitled to. We have over 60 years of combined legal experience, and we have gone up against hundreds of employers and insurance companies across Iowa on behalf of our clients.
With So Much At Stake, Choosing The Right Lawyer Is Critical
Work-related brain injuries can range from short-term and minor, to long-term and severe. With minor head trauma, you may suffer from memory or concentration problems. More severe brain injuries may result in:
- Loss of motor function
- Permanently impaired memory
- Loss of cognitive brain function
- Long-term or permanent speech difficulties
These legal cases often turn on the testimony of treating doctors and experts selected and hired by your attorney. In addition to retaining an experienced attorney, you will need a legal advocate to advance necessary litigation expenses. This will help you obtain the medical and expert opinions necessary to fight for your workers’ compensation benefits. At Wertz Law Firm, P.C., we have handled many cases involving workers with significant brain injuries, and we understand what it takes to be successful on behalf of clients.
