Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

How A Lawyer Can Help

TBI Traumatic brain injury veterans affairs lawyerTraumatic Brain Injury, or TBI, is an especially 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 Veterans Disability Benefits as a result of their injuries. Brain injuries can sometimes be hard to diagnose and may lead to significant emotional, cognitive and physical problems over time.

At Rob Levine and Associates, we have successfully represented hundreds of veterans in getting them the Veterans Disability Benefits they deserve, including those involving a TBI.


What is a TBI?

As the name suggests, the condition is 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, and even these less severe incidents can lead to long-term cognitive and personality issues.

The VA And Problems With TBI Diagnosis

In an official report, The Office of the Inspector General found that a high percentage of TBI cases are mislabeled or mishandled because of the VA evaluators’ inability to correctly interpret the medical results. Some of this may be due to the fact that a veteran’s symptoms may look different at the time of the evaluation than they did at the time of the injury. In addition, the variety of symptoms of a TBI can vary greatly. They may include:

  • Headaches
  • Confusion
  • Lightheadedness
  • Dizziness
  • Blurred vision
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Fatigue
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Bad taste in the mouth
  • Changes in ability to smell

The VA has refined its evaluation criteria to make it easier for TBI victims to get disability compensation. Still, it can be a long and arduous process to get the compensation you deserve from the injuries you sustained while in service.
