This information is not intended as legal or medical aid, if you have suffered an injury, please get medical attention and consult an attorney.
A blow or jolt to the head can result in a traumatic brain injury (TBI), which can disrupt the normal function of the brain. The severity of the injury may range from mild, a brief change in mental status or consciousness, to severe, an extended period of unconsciousness (30 minutes or more), prolonged amnesia after the injury, or a penetrating skull injury. Any TBI can result in short- and long-term disabilities (CDC unpublished). Read more about Traumatic Brain Injury in the NCIPC Injury Fact Book, 2001-2002.
According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Brain injuries are among the most likely types of injury to cause death or permanent disability, and according to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), Acute trauma at work remains a leading cause of death and disability among U.S. workers. Furthermore, a review of Texas death certificates for 1982 identified 710 deaths associated with occupational injuries.
During the period from 1980 through 1995, at least 93,338 workers in the U.S. died as a result of trauma suffered on the job, for an average of about 16 deaths per day (NIOSH). The Bureau of Labor Statistics (Department of Labor) Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries (CFOI) has identified 5,915 workplace deaths from acute traumatic injury in 2000. BLS also estimates that 5.7 million injuries to workers occurred in 1997 alone; while NIOSH estimates that about 3.6 million occupational injuries were serious enough to be treated in hospital emergency rooms in 1998.
