Brain injuries and lost wages

Not only can traumatic brain injuries lead to high medical bills and a long road to recovery, but they can also cause you to lose wages when you can't work. This is true both for those who are employed for a salary or hourly wages and those who own and run their own businesses.

If this happens to you, you may be able to seek Social Security Disability benefits. In fact, the threshold for these benefits is fairly low. As long as it can be noted that the injury is going to keep you from making a minimum of $1,000, you may be able to get the benefits. This $1,000 can be spread out over the entire year.

Of course, many people who are out of work for a significant amount of time will lose far more than $1,000. Some may even lose their jobs entirely. While they are out of work, their employers will need to replace them with other workers so the job can still get done, and that could be the end of the line. This isn't necessarily a career killer, as people can get back into work after they recover, but it could set them back considerably.

The symptoms of a TBI range widely depending on the severity of the injury, but they could include things like nausea, feeling lightheaded, blurred vision, difficulty with balance, sensitivity to light, problems with memory, mood swings and much more.
