Traumatic brain injuries can be debilitating

Some of the most crippling injuries an employee can suffer at work are head and brain injuries. A traumatic brain injury (TBI) can occur when a person suffers a direct blow to the head. Traumatic brain injuries can be very debilitating and sometimes there is no pain or obvious symptoms. Luckily, those who suffer traumatic brain injuries at work may be able to obtain Social Security Disability benefits.

Mild TBIs

Traumatic brain injuries are usually classified from mild to severe. A mild TBI is also called a concussion and often causes a person to suffer confusion or a loss of consciousness, usually for less than half an hour. Despite being called “mild”, these types of TBI’s may be accompanied by more serious symptoms such as memory loss, fatigue, dizziness and headaches. Mild TBIs account for around 80% of all brain injuries.

Severe TBIs

Severe traumatic brain injuries can affect a person for months or even years after the injury. Severe TBIs often cause a person to lose consciousness for more than 30 minutes. Symptoms of severe TBIs include loss of motor function, cognitive impairments such as speech and language abnormalities, poor memory and/or memory loss, sleep disturbances and persistent headaches.

Those who have suffered a traumatic brain injury with lasting mental and physical and mental difficulties are often eligible for Social Security Disability Insurance benefits. However, victims need to ensure that they provide documentation of all functional limitations and medical treatment caused by their injury. Those who are seeking Social Security disability can obtain assistance and much-needed guidance on how to move forward by speaking with a trusted and experienced attorney.
