Despite hardhats and caution signs, traumatic head injuries are extremely prevalent on construction sites.

Any time you are working on a construction site with heavy machinery or on New York high rises, brain and head injuries are a real concern. Hardhats are required to be worn at all times on a construction site, but there’s only so much a hard hat can protect from a two-ton beam. With that said if you have suffered a head or brain injury on a construction site, you should consult with a Westchester brain injury lawyer today to discuss filing an accident claim.

Types of head injuries commonly found in construction site accidents:

  • Closed Injury: Closed head injuries are severe blows to your head that do not crack open your skull or pierce brain tissue. Closed injuries can cause swelling, bruising and could result in time off of work.
  • Open Injury: An open head injury is one that penetrates the skull. This could result in skull fractures or bleeding from your brain.
  • Concussion: When your brain has been severely shaken, like in a concussion, it can cause loss of consciousness, lightheadedness or severe headaches.
  • Scalp Wounds: Scalp wounds are when you have cuts, scrapes or piercing of the skin that surrounds your skull. This can cause bleeding or tissue damage.
  • Traumatic Brain Injury: TBI’s occur when a blow to the head disorders normal functions of the brain. This is commonly found in construction site accidents.
