ARE YOU A VETERAN SUFFERING FROM TBI? GET AN EXPERIENCED ATTORNEY
As the name suggests, Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs) are a significant injury to the brain. It is often the result of improvised explosive devices (IEDs), vehicle crashes, falls and other accidents common in military settings. In its milder form, a TBI is referred to as a concussion, which can still lead to long-term cognitive and personality issues.
HOW AN EXPERIENCED VETERANS DISABILITY LAWYER CAN HELP
TBIs are a common and difficult problem for veterans returning from combat theater and other military deployments. Estimates show that nearly 20 percent of Iraq and Afghanistan veterans suffer from a TBI and may be entitled to VA disability compensation. Brain injuries are often hard to diagnose and may lead to significant emotional, cognitive, and physical problems over time when left untreated.

SUFFERING FROM A TBI?
A Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) often results from sudden impact or trauma to the head, which causes damage to the brain. Explosive devices, falls, and motor vehicle crashes can cause TBI. Symptoms can present immediately or days, months, or even years afterward. TBIs are often linked to PTSD, and like PTSD, medicine is striving to better understand this complicated medical condition.
The VA has recognized that a Traumatic Brain Injury can have a diverse impact on veterans’ health, especially those who have served in combat. Veterans with TBI can suffer from headaches, dizziness, nausea, vomiting, trouble concentrating, memory problems, and irritability. More severe symptoms include cognitive defects, sensory defects, speech problems, attention issues, memory loss, and impulsiveness.
Under new regulations, it may be easier for a veteran with TBI to also receive VA disability compensation for Parkinson’s Disease, seizures, dementia, and depression.
