Can a Traumatic Brain Injury Permanently Disable Me?

By Personal Injury Attorney Michael Ehline Esq.

Suffering from a TBI can be a life-changing event that you didn’t sign up for. This is generally caused by outside forces, like blows or severe jolts to the head. It doesn’t matter the cause of such an injury. All that matters is that traumatic brain injuries can have a severe impact on your daily life. This makes many people wonder if they can become permanently disabled and be eligible for disability benefits. This is a complicated answer. Yet, it’s clear that many victims have suffered cruel life-altering symptoms.

Traumatic Brain Injury and Eligibility for Social Security Disability Benefits

We will look into what goes into a traumatic brain injury diagnosis and how one might be eligible for disability benefits by examining appropriate medical evidence and residual functional capacity following the injury.

Is a Traumatic Brain Injury Considered a Disability?

Yes, medical professionals consider some conditions surrounding a TBI a disability. These are conditions eligible for Social Security Administration benefits. However, this is only made available when the presence of traumatic brain damage has restricted the victim’s ability to work. The terms of the Blue Book outline the medical evidence needed to have these brain injuries considered as a disability.

What Social Security Disability Insurance Benefits Can You Received?

A disability applicant who has suffered lasting medical and physical difficulties from severe brain injuries might be eligible for Social Security disability benefits. You might be eligible for these Social Security benefits and Social Security Administration SSA. This is if such medical conditions affect your ability to work.

What Are the Limitations Resulting from a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)?

Concentration, attention, and memory loss are some of the organic mental disorders suffered from these brain injuries. In most cases, the symptoms of this medical issue come with limitations on the work this victim can do. In some instances, working is impossible for victims. Cerebral trauma can last for more than three months while the treatment process is grueling. This can qualify such applicants for SSA and claim the benefits they deserve from the difficulty caused by such a diagnosis. In most instances, you’re going to need an experienced attorney. You sit with a better chance of a returned SSDI and SSA claim when you file with an experienced attorney, like the ones at Ehline Law.

Can Someone Fully Recover from a TBI?

Many patients suffering from this diagnosis regain consciousness. However, the treatment and recovery process involves numerous stages. Memory and communication skills are sometimes hindered forever with a severe diagnosis. Nonetheless, it’s widely known that patients with mild conditions can make excellent recoveries.

What are the Long-Term Effects of a Traumatic Brain Injury?

There are various conditions that many clients are unable to recover from despite the treatment, which lasts for a long time. Such effects include:

  • Hindered communication ability
  • Fatigue
  • Epilepsy
  • Visual difficulties
  • And more

Can a Severe Head Injury Cause Problems Years Later?

Some patients are symptom-free within the first two weeks of this incident, while others might experience issues within a few months or years. Patients shouldn’t ignore these problems when such complications arise. The more severe this injury is, the more pronounced the long-term conditions are going to be.
