How to qualify for Social Security benefits for a head injury

A brain or head injury can wreak havoc on your life. Whether the symptoms manifest themselves immediately or over time, they can cause you to miss work for extended periods. If this happens, you will see medical bills and other expenses begin to pile up due to a lack of income.

Suffering an injury or illness while on the job can be stressful. When you are injured or sickened and have to miss work, there are a few options out there to help. Those include workers' compensation, Social Security disability benefits and state disability benefits. There are differences between them all and you should understand those differences so you know which one is best for your situation.

This is particularly true when individuals may have a limited opportunity to achieve their goal, as is the case with many legal proceedings where a single hearing can be a make-or-break moment to obtain relief. In these circumstances, preparation for the hearing or other proceeding is vital to success.
