Head Injuries Can Be Disabling But Hard To Diagnose

The medical science on head injuries has made significant strides in the last several decades. Professional athletes with head injuries must get medical clearance before resuming play. Many of the myths surrounding concussions have gone away. Helmet use on bikes is encouraged, and sometimes mandated by law. Doctors are becoming more sophisticated regarding the symptoms and treatment of head injuries.

Unfortunately, when it comes to workers' compensation, modern medical advancements may not mean as much as they could. Many injured workers with head injuries have difficulty proving that they cannot concentrate, have experienced personality changes, dizziness and other lingering symptoms of post-concussion syndrome and other conditions that affect work. Proving that you have experienced these lingering symptoms requires significant documentation.
