If you suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI) from a work accident, you have the right to file for workers’ compensation benefits. A TBI can change your life, but the attorneys at QuatriniRafferty, will guide you through every step of your claim to ensure you get the benefits you deserve to help you and your family heal.
Common Causes And Symptoms Of A TBI
Construction and manufacturing positions often carry a risk of workers suffering a TBI from serious falls and even heavy falling objects. Commercial drivers can also suffer TBIs in a collision.
TBIs are often unseen injuries, but there are some symptoms you can look out for, including:
- Difficulty sleeping or sleeping too much
- Sensitivity to lights and sounds
- Changes in mood or behavior
- Signs of depression or anxiety
- Problems concentrating or remembering
- Speech and motor skill issues
- Loss of control over limbs
Any or a combination of these symptoms could mean you or a loved one has suffered a severe brain injury.

A 20-year-old therapist was assaulted by a patient in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Although it was not disputed that the therapist sustained injuries, including a concussion, the Employer and Workers’ Compensation Carrier issued a Medical Only Notice of Temporary Compensation Payable. Essentially, the employer disputed the fact that the therapist was disabled or unable to work and, as such, refused to pay wage loss/indemnity benefits. Quatrini Rafferty and Attorney Peter Gough filed a Claim Petition arguing the therapist sustained disabling physical injuries to the head and chest, including a concussion and a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)/Closed Head Injury. All matters were resolved through a Compromise and Release Agreement, specifically via a lump sum settlement to the client’s satisfaction.
