Have You Suffered Permanent Disability?
Suffering a brain injury can cause immediate and permanent physical impairment and mental instability. Despite the severity of a brain injury and their consequences, it can still be an uphill battle for someone to gain Social Security Disability benefits due to complications or disagreements with the Social Security Administration (SSA). If you have been denied SSD benefits after suffering a brain injury, Stevens & Sullivan, LLC and our Social Security Disability lawyers in Atlanta can help you figure out what you need to do next.
When you need legal help more than ever, contact our firm.
Serious Consequences of Brain Injuries
There is really no such thing as a minor brain injury from a medical standpoint. Due to the brain's slow healing process, a slight contusion to the brain can eventually worsen to a crippling condition. Many of these symptoms will be permanent and completely remove someone's ability to complete regular job functions in many occupations.
Consequences and symptoms of brain injuries include:
- Loss of equilibrium and spells of dizziness
- Nausea, sickness, and vomiting
- Ringing in the ears or tinnitus
- Blurred vision or difficulty focusing
- Memory loss or trouble recalling events
- Inability to learn new talents or information
- Chronic, disabling migraines
- Irritability, anger, or depression
The aforementioned conditions are not even the worst that can happen after a brain injury, but each one alone can make finding and holding gainful employment nearly impossible. Social Security Disability benefits or supplemental security income should be provided to individuals who have suffered disabling brain injuries.
