Social Security Traumatic Brain Injury Disability Lawyer

Brain Injury Benefits

If a stroke, aneurysm or other traumatic brain injury is expected to prevent you from earning more than $1,000 dollars per month for at least one year, you may be eligible to receive Social Security Disability benefits.

Although Social Security Disability (SSD) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) are there to benefit injured Americans like you who can no longer work, the fact is, the process is long and complicated, and more than 70 percent of initial applications are denied. Our Social Security traumatic brain injury disability attorneys are here to help you through the process to get your much-needed benefits.

Brain Injuries and the Process of Obtaining Benefits

A brain injury could be equally considered a physical impairment or a mental impairment. The brain is a physical part of the body, obviously, but most symptoms of brain injuries look more like mental impairments than physical:

  • Dizziness
  • Loss of memory
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Inability to control movements
  • Changes in behavior

For purposes of Social Security benefits, however, the most important factor is not whether the brain injury is a physical impairment or mental impairment. The most important factor is whether or not the TBI has rendered you "disabled" according to the Social Security Administration's (SSA's) definition.

When the SSA reviews an initial application, it is looking for certain legally specific language in the medical records to indicate that you are unable to work. Even a favorable medical report will be denied if the very specific legally effective language is missing.
