Head and brain injuries are some of the most severe types of injuries a person can suffer from, and unfortunately, many of these injuries occur on the job. Some industries have a higher risk of brain or head injuries than others, regardless of how careful both the employer and the employee are being.
There are two different types of brain injuries that can occur in the workplace:
Process Oriented Head And Brain Injuries – these occur from a sudden injury, not due to long term exposure. These types of injuries are caused by blunt force striking a person’s head.
Disease Oriented Brain Injuries – these types of brain injuries are slow to progress and sometimes difficult to diagnose, but typically happen in the event that the person has been exposed to toxic substances for an extended period of time.
