Head Injuries And Social Security Disability

Head injuries can come in many different forms and can lead to a wide variety of medical complications associated with serious head trauma. Depending on the type and severity of the injury, victims can suffer a vast array of short- and long-term side effects. In many cases, head injuries can have a life-changing impact on victims.

In many head injury cases, an underlying brain injury can lead to trouble with motor skills, memory loss and difficulty with cognitive reasoning. If your head injury or any of its side effects is keeping you out of work and your recovery is expected to take 12 months or longer, you may be eligible to seek Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits.

Work-Related Head Injuries

If your head injury occurred in the course of doing your job, you have the right to seek benefits under workers' compensation. Employers and their insurance companies can be very hesitant to pay on head injury claims, however, and these cases can be uphill battles from the start. It is important that you have quality legal representation behind you at all times.

If you were hit by a falling object, hit your head in a slip-and-fall accident, fell off a ladder or suffered a head injury in any other type of accident, you should have your case reviewed by an attorney at the Harrisburg-based Law Offices of Katherine L. Niven & Associates, PC. We represent victims of brain and head injuries in Social Security Disability and workers' compensation claims.
