Attorneys for Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
Are You Eligible for Disability Benefits?
If you have suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI) that has or is expected to prevent you from earning more than $1,000 per month for at least one year, you may be eligible to receive disability benefits.
At Midwest Disability, we help people who cannot work because of mental impairments and brain injuries such as TBI to apply for and obtain disability benefits. We provide a comprehensive range of services. This includes helping clients prepare initial applications and fighting to protect our clients’ interests in administrative hearings and appeals. We have even argued disability cases before the United States Supreme Court.

TBI Can Have Devastating Effects
A brain injury can be difficult to detect because the brain controls so many functions of our bodies. Whether you suffered a concussion or a subdural hematoma, it can have a lasting impact on your ability to work.
Among the common effects that can hamper the ability of people to function at work are:
- Inability to handle stress
- Change in personality and mood swings
- Short temperament
- Memory loss
- Inability to control functions of the body
- Headaches and sleep loss
If the effects of your TBI or other brain injury are causing you to miss more than two unscheduled days of work per month, you could be deemed unemployable and thus eligible to receive Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits. We can help you learn more about your right to benefits.
Honesty Is the Best Policy
Thorough medical evidence and documentation will be key in proving your need for disability benefits. Therefore, it is important to be completely honest with your doctor about your symptoms. Our advice is to be upfront about how these symptoms are affecting you and to follow through on your doctor’s orders with respect to future care, treatment, referrals and prescriptions.
