Symptoms that Can Keep You From Working After a Brain Injury
After sustaining a closed head injury, people often miss time from work, then have trouble re-entering the workforce or performing their old job. This results in lost income, which only compounds the physical and psychological problems brought on by head trauma. The following symptoms and others can greatly affect a person's ability to work.
- Memory loss
- Difficulty concentrating
- Mood swings
Legal Options For Lost Wages After a TBI
Fortunately, the law in South Carolina provides compensation for every loss you experience due to a TBI - including money for lost wages and "decreased earning capacity." This means that if you had a complex, high-paying job before your injury, but after the brain injury you are no longer able to perform your duties, you should be compensated for the difference in your previous wages and what you are able to earn now. Here at the Law Office of Kenneth Berger, our team is passionate about helping TBI survivors. We have helped many people like you receive a fair outcome, and we would be honored to help you as well.
