Basic Requirements for TBI Disability Compensation

Proof of Honorable Discharge & Disease or Injury.

The veteran must have been discharged and have a disease or injury that is in some way debilitating. The discharge or release must be for reasons other than dishonorable discharge. Secondly, the disease or injury was suffered or accentuated in the line of duty. Lastly, the disease or injury was not a direct result of the veterans willful misconduct or drug abuse. It is helpful to have an experienced Texas VA TBI lawyer to better understand how the sometimes confusing process works.

Evidence of a Disease or Injury Starting While Serving

We use evidence to prove that your in-service precipitating disease, injury, or event occurred or was aggravated while you were actively serving and through evidence it must be demonstrated that there is at least a 50% chance the disease or injury occurred or was aggravated during service.

Service Connection.

The last requirement a disabled veteran must possess is the existence of a connection between the disabling disease or injury and the in-service precipitating disease, injury, or event. 

Common Service-Related Traumatic Brain Injuries

Concussions

The most common brain injury, regardless of severity, concussions are traumatic. Concussions may be caused by a sudden impact to the head, or intense shaking of the head. Those who get concussions frequently will likely experience long-term cognitive disorders. Cognitive disorders such as post concussion syndrome and chronic encephalopathy can happen as a result of frequent concussions.

Coup-Contrecoup Brain Injury

After a severe blow to the skull the brain moves suddenly to one or more sides. The shifting brain impacts the side of the skull opposite from the impact, causing an injury on that side known as a coup-contrecoup. Commonly life threatening, tissue damage and bleeding are common results of such an impact which can lead to life-long complications and disabling symptoms. 

Hematomas

Hematoma refers to a clot that occurs in vessels located in the brain and are commonly classified as intracerebral, epidural, subdural, and subarachnoid. Hematomas are life-threatening, requiring immediate emergency medical attention to treat. 

Diffuse Axonal Injury (DAI) 

DAIs are commonly the result of an intense shaking of the head and brain. For example, in an accident where powerful forces of motion are a factor, causing the head to be forcefully shaken. Unfortunately, DAIs commonly result in prolonged commas or death.

Contusions

When the head experiences a forceful blow, brain tissues can be damaged or bruised, and the structural integrity of the skull may be compromised, resulting in a contusion.
