Workers Compensation after Brain Injury
The workers compensation program applies to anyone suffering a brain or other injury at work. While the benefits under workers compensation after brain injury overlap they typically involve more money. There is no requirement that the disability continue for a full year, so worker’s comp benefits should commence immediately. In most cases, medical bills will be paid in full. The battle lines with worker’s comp comes later, over the length and the extent of the benefits.
