Disability Claims for Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
Outwardly, some victims of a traumatic brain injury may appear fine. The person may be able to talk and move normally, and even "pass" neurological exams. This is one of the reasons that brain injury claims for Social Security disability are turned down.

Traumatic Brain Injury and Social Security Disability
Whether the brain injury was suffered from a head trauma, oxygen deprivation or toxic exposure, brain damage is different for every victim. Some people are profoundly and obviously impaired, but many suffer from multiple side effects that are also disabling. In the aftermath of a traumatic brain injury (TBI), we work to detail all the ways in which the injury makes it impossible for our client to work at all or sustain a job:
- Short-term or long-term memory loss
- Cognitive deficits
- Inability to concentrate
- Problems with speech or reading
- Visual impairment
- Dizzy spells, vertigo or loss of balance
- Physical or mental fatigue
- Personality change or wide mood swings
- Post-traumatic stress disorder or depression
The full extent of may not be realized for several months. If your family member has signs of brain injury, we can work with you to coordinate the neurological, psychological and physiological testing to confirm the diagnosis. This is critical to getting your loved one on the right therapeutic track for maximum recovery from a brain injury, and to support the Social Security disability claim.
Our attorneys handles only disability law: Social Security disability (SSDI) and SSI, and related claims for private long-term disability insurance or workers' compensation. We coordinate your claims to maximize the income and medical benefits.
