A traumatic brain injury (TBI) may not be diagnosed immediately after an accident. The symptoms of a traumatic brain injury can be elusive and difficult to assess. Many victims of TBI are seen by their loved ones as "just not right" after an accident. At the Disability Benefits Law Center, P.C., we have experience helping victims and families of traumatic brain injury establish a diagnosis, seek treatment and collect government benefits for their very serious disability.
Victims of traumatic brain injury can also suffer personality changes, mood disorders and neurological dysfunction. You and your family may be entitled to benefits.

Traumatic brain injuries are usually caused by a forceful blow to the head. Victims sustain traumatic brain injuries in a variety of ways: car accidents, slip and falls, assaults or attacks, military duty, or domestic violence. Whether you have already been diagnosed or you suspect that a loved one has suffered a traumatic brain injury, it is important to know your rights and options regarding government disability benefits.
Strategic advocacy for SSDI and SSI benefits
While traumatic brain injuries can heal over time, it can take years. In the meantime, victims are left unable to manage day to day tasks or hold a steady job. Many symptoms of a TBI can adversely affect a person's ability to work, including:
- Personality changes
- Violent outbursts
- Mood disorders
- Memory loss
- Significant drops in cognitive abilities (thinking, remembering, performing complex tasks, etc.)
Our attorneys are highly experienced in assisting helping the victims and families of traumatic brain injury seek government assistance through the Social Security Disability Insurance and Supplemental Security Income programs.
Seek appropriate medical treatment to protect your rights
If you believe that you or someone you love is showing enduring symptoms of a brain injury, it is important to seek medical treatment as soon as possible. Seeking medical treatment allows you to address the underlying issues and symptoms as well as establish a record for your disability case. It is very difficult, or nearly impossible, to collect benefits without a record of medical treatment. Our attorneys will provide you with information, counsel and advocacy as we help you pursue the SSDI or SSI benefits you need.
