TBIs and Social Security Disability Benefits

by | Nov 14, 2019 | Social Security Disability Benefits For Injuries |

There are many different types of injuries that Alabama residents may suffer that could qualify them to receive Social Security Disability Benefits. However, perhaps the most impactful injury that a person could suffer is commonly referred to as a traumatic brain injury. After all, the brain is what makes the whole body go – if it is damaged, the impact on a person’s life can be substantial.

Although the word traumatic is included in the classification of this type of injury, there is a range of what is referred to as mild TBIs to the more severe types of TBIs. With a mild TBI, a person may experience difficulty sleeping, fatigue and sensitivity to stimuli, such as sound and light. With the most severe type of TBIs, symptoms and permanent conditions can be quite limiting. For example, some people who suffer severe TBIs experience a loss of coordination, nausea, agonizing headaches and even seizures.

Unfortunately, there are no quick fixes to a TBI. People in Alabama who suffer from these injuries often require months or even years of medical treatment and rehabilitative therapy. Understandably, the severity of these injuries can significantly limit the person’s ability to work and earn an income. When this happens, applying for Social Security Disability benefits may be an option.

SSD benefits are intended to help those who have been a part of the workforce for a certain amount of time but who suffer an illness or injury that prevents them from continuing to work. Being approved to receive SSD benefits can be a financial lifesaver for those who find themselves suffering from a TBI or other severe injury.
