A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is defined as an injury in which an external force seriously injures the brain. Sometimes a traumatic brain injury is referred to as a intracranial injury. A concussion is, for example, a minor version of a traumatic brain injury. There are many possible causes for traumatic brain injuries in the military, although one of the main causes for such injuries amongst soldiers is improvised explosive devices (IEDs). Other causes for these injuries includes bullet wounds, vehicle crashes, or falls.
Blasts from IEDs are particularly problematic because many of the victims of these attacks are not aware that they suffered a serious injury until much later. This is problematic because additional damage can be caused to the brain if an injury is not treated or if the victim goes to sleep during that time.
The Rand Corporation estimates that roughly 320,000 current and recently discharged troops might have suffered traumatic brain injuries while serving overseas (this estimate is somewhat dated). Some people speculate that those who believe that they have sustained traumatic brain injuries might in reality be suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
Although brain injuries can vary widely in seriousness and in effects, some symptoms of traumatic brain injuries include:
If you believe that it is possible that you have suffered a traumatic brain injury, you should contact a medical professional or visit a Veteran's Hospital as soon as possible.
In 2008, the Department of Veteran's Affairs increased the amount of benefits that a soldier can recieve for a traumatic brain injury. Some brain injuries, like minor concussions, though documented, will not be eligible for any compensation, while signiicantly more serious injuries can be eligible for sizeable benefits.
Although it is technically possible to file a claim for VA benefits without the help of a VA Benefit attorney, it is likely that such a claim will take a good time longer and that it will not be as generous. A skilled attorney can help you get maximum compensation for the injuries that you sustained while serving your, and our, country. We believe that if a life has been adversely affected in the line of duty, it is duty of the taxpayers to compensate their protectors.
If you believe that you have been injured with a traumatic head injury, it is important that you have documentation proving that you have indeed sustained this injury and documentation that the injury was sustained while in service.
Contact one of our attorneys at this VA benefits law firm and take the first step to getting the benefits that you earned by serving our country.
