The residual limitations that can result from a traumatic brain injury (TBI), which can affect a person’s cognitive, physical, and emotional well-being, are often times disabling. A traumatic brain injury occurs when a person sustains serious head trauma. Traumatic brain injuries often result from motor vehicle accidents, sports injuries, work-place accidents, routine falls around the house and in public, and, in the case of military veterans, combat trauma resulting from roadside bombs, bullets, and grenades. In the most serious traumatic brain injuries, the brain itself can become bruised or damaged, with torn tissues and bleeding, all of which can lead to long-term health complications that can severely limit an individual’s quality of life, much less their ability to work.
To learn more about mild, moderate, and severe symptoms experienced by those who have suffered a traumatic brain injury, please visit the Mayo Clinic’s list of TBI symptoms.
If you or a loved has suffered a traumatic brain injury, there is a strong possibility that Social Security disability benefits may be available. Please call Viner Disability Law or fill out a contact form to learn more.
