Even a moderate traumatic brain injury can leave a person struggling to perform the types of routine activities that he was used to performing before. Those can include work activities because the brain injury can impact a person’s motor and cognitive abilities. Those deficiencies can render the person unable to work, and therefore, eligible to file a claim for Social Security disability benefits.
Unfortunately, filing a disability claim after suffering a traumatic brain injury is riddled with challenges. If your disability benefits claim for TBI was denied, don’t lose hope. A majority of claims are denied at the very first filing. There are ways for you to appeal your claim in order to claim the benefits that you deserve. Very often, disability benefits claims are denied because the applicant failed to provide the right type of evidence or all pieces of evidence that are required for the Social Security Administration to process a claim. For example, you will require doctor treatment notes and complete details of the treatments that you have undergone so far, as well as names and contact information of all the physicians treating you.
It’s important to provide all the additional pieces of information that the agency requires. Learning what evidence is required in order to improve your claim is not easy for a layperson. Speak to an experienced Houston Social Security disability benefits lawyer to understand how you can increase your chances of getting your claim approved.
