A number of service men and women who served their time in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have reportedly suffered from traumatic brain injury (TBI), a serious condition that can lead to a lifetime of pain and suffering when left untreated or unchecked. Data from the Defense and Veterans Brain Injury Center showed that more than 320,000 service members were found to be suffering from TBI between the years 2000 and 2014, and though the numbers have decreased since 2011, service members are still at risk of acquiring TBI as armed conflict in these countries continues.
Suffering from TBI is one factor that makes a veteran eligible for disability benefits. Yet with the help of a trusted veterans disability attorney, war veterans and their loved ones can still obtain benefits that are intended precisely to help the nation’s valiant sons and daughters recuperate from the damages they have sustained.
