When Traumatic Brain Injury Results In Permanent Disability
A traumatic brain injury (TBI) can cause severe physical and mental limitations that last for years. In some cases, the symptoms of TBI last a lifetime. If you have suffered a serious brain injury and are unable to work as a result, you may qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits. The process of obtaining benefits is complex, however, and you will encounter legal hurdles, strict timelines and reams of red tape.
Do not despair. The attorneys at Davis, Davis & Patterson in Rome, Georgia, are here to handle all of the paperwork and filing requirements on your behalf. We have more than 80 years of experience handling SSDI claims and appeals for clients throughout North Georgia.
The Harsh Consequences Of TBI
A traumatic brain injury will affect your life in many ways. Some of the most common symptoms of TBI include:
- Severe headaches
- Mood swings
- Impaired speech
- Impaired cognition
- Difficulty reasoning
It’s easy to see how such symptoms would make it difficult to hold down a steady job. Every occupation requires some level of sustained mental exertion, and many who suffer from TBI simply cannot meet that demand.
The good news: There is hope in the form of SSDI benefits. Our lawyers will work with you personally to learn how this brain injury has affected your life and impacted your ability to work. With a full understanding of your circumstances, we can make a compelling case for benefits on your behalf.
