TBI Claim for Veterans' Disability Benefits in Upstate New York

Helping You Get the Benefits You Need

You served your country willingly. You’re proud of your service, too.

But you, like many veterans, came back with a traumatic brain injury (TBI).

TBIs can manifest both physically and psychologically in the long and short term. Unfortunately, TBIs often get overlooked. A 2018 study by the VA found long-term issues with TBI examinations, including that many veterans weren’t properly examined for TBIs.

They can make holding a job impossible, which leaves you unable to provide for you and your family through no fault of your own.

It’s why you need veterans’ disability benefits. They’re protection for people who served and now need a little help to live secure lives.

You deserve support. But sometimes, getting it isn’t so easy. We see too many veterans denied the benefits they need.

If you’re struggling with getting disability benefits with a TBI, call the experienced lawyers at Lachman & Gorton today.

We’re proud to help our neighbors Elmira, Rochester, Binghamton, Buffalo, Syracuse and all over Central and Upstate New York.

How to Qualify for Veterans’ Disability Benefits with a TBI

To qualify for benefits, you have to prove:

  • You served on active duty, active-duty training or inactive duty training.
  • You have medical evidence detailing your condition.
  • Your TBI was caused by your service.

Some doctors don’t know the standards. Or, you could even get denied if you make an error on your Disability Benefits Questionnaire (DBQ).

Here are TBI symptoms the VA will consider:

  • Memory Loss/Impairment
  • Cognitive Issues
  • Eyesight Problems
  • Hearing Problems
  • Neurobehavioral Problems
  • Pain
  • Seizures

Our lawyers will help you gather the correct documents, fill them out accurately and even send you to a doctor experienced with the VA system and TBIs.

You don’t have to go through this process alone. Our disability attorneys know the system, and know how to give you the best chance to win.

We can answer any questions you have and even evaluate your case for free.
