Concussions at New York Construction Sites
Count on our Bronx attorneys when you need us most
New York City construction accidents often involve injuries to the head. And one of the most common head injuries sustained by construction workers on the job is a concussion, a type of traumatic brain injury (TBI) in which the brain is bruised due to a direct hit to the head or a violent shaking motion.
If you or a loved one sustained a concussion while working at a construction site, you need to make sure you receive immediate medical care and proper rest to avoid more serious medical complications. It's also important to be examined by a medical professional right away since more serious life-threatening internal injuries may have occurred and might simply seem like a minor concussion.
