Traumatic Brain Injury Insurance Attorneys
Helping You Obtain Short-Term and Long-Term Disability Benefits
Each year, approximately 2.87 million people visit emergency departments, face hospitalizations, and die as a result of traumatic brain injuries (TBIs). For many who suffer TBIs, daily life becomes difficult and holding gainful employment is no longer possible. Common disabilities associated with TBIs include problems with cognition, sensory processing, communication, and behavioral or mental health.
Traumatic brain injury survivors who can no longer work and are covered by disability insurance, via their employer or a private policy, may also be eligible for short-term disability (STD) benefits while they recover or long-term disability (LTD) benefits for the remainder of their would-be careers.

About Traumatic Brain Injuries
Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) occur when sudden trauma causes damage to the brain. They are typically the results of falls or motor vehicle accidents and can be closed (due to a blow, bump, or jolt to the head) or penetrating (when an object pierces the skull).
Severe TBIs can lead to stupor, coma, or a vegetative state, and symptoms of mild, moderate, and severe TBIs include:
- Loss of consciousness
- Nausea and vomiting
- Blurred vision or tired eyes
- Ringing in the ears
- Bad taste in the mouth
- Slurred speech
- Restlessness or agitation
- Loss of coordination
- Fatigue or lethargy
- A change in sleep patterns
- Behavioral or mood changes
- Trouble with memory, concentration, attention, or thinking
Any of the symptoms above can make it difficult for you to do your job. If completing your responsibilities causes you undue stress and hardship, you may not be able to sustain the demands of your occupation for long. This is why STD and LTD insurance exists.
An approved claim could allow you to collect benefits until your treatment ends and/or for the rest of your life.
