You have probably heard about concussions, but did you know that concussions are a type of traumatic brain injury (“TBI”)? A TBI is an acquired brain injury, meaning a person is not born with it.
Rather, it is caused by a blow or jolt to the head, often in connection with a fall, car accident, assault, or sports injury. TBIs can also be caused by an object penetrating the skull.
According to the American Association of Neurological Surgeons, TBIs are common, and approximately 13.5 million people in the United States live with a disability due to a TBI. Brain injuries can affect individuals of all ages, and beginning at age 30, the mortality risk after experiencing a head injury increases.
Symptoms for TBIs vary in severity and can be physical, sensory, and cognitive. According to the Mayo Clinic these symptoms may include:
Any combination of these symptoms can make working near impossible. If you have sustained a TBI and performing your job is a constant struggle, you may not be able to sustain the demands of your occupation for much longer. The experienced attorneys at Dabdoub Law Firm can help you navigate your next steps with filing a disability insurance claim.
We have successfully handled disability claims for TBI patients. In order to prove disability from a TBI we rely on evidence such as:

- letters and questionnaire from treating providers
