Brain Injury and Social Security Disability Insurance
Has your life or the life of a loved one been turned upside down by a brain injury? Injuries to the head vary from mild to serious, from headaches and mild confusion to convulsions and weakness in the arms and legs. Brain injury may be caused by a fall, a car accident, an assault or even a stroke.
At the Law Offices of Stuart Pastor, I have helped countless clients struggling with traumatic brain injury. As a Social Security attorney since 1991, I have dedicated myself to one goal: to help clients win Social Security disability benefits as early in the process as possible, so they can get their benefits as soon as possible.
With nearly 20 years of experience as a lawyer practicing SSDI and SSI law, I understand how the Social Security system works, and has a great deal of medical knowledge of traumatic brain injury.

Traumatic Brain Injury or TBI
Symptoms of traumatic brain injury may not be obvious. Close examination of a stroke victim often reveals loss of cognitive ability that is not obvious but can reduce the ability to read, write and speak. Balance and fine motor skills are often negatively impacted, and fatigue can be a constant companion for many of the brain injured.
TBI often affects the emotions as well, creating wide mood swings that make it difficult to hold a job or function like you used to.
Pursuing Social Security Disability Benefits
The way the Social Security system is set up can make traumatic brain injury claims challenging to prove, but that also means that there can be more than one way to prove your claim.
I begin with the traumatic brain injury itself. If your symptoms match those of the listed medical condition used by Social Security, you could win your disability award early in the process.
Another way to win is to prove that you cannot perform any occupation on a full-time basis, even the work you used to do. People affected by stroke often suffer a loss of memory, the ability to concentrate, and some physical capacity. If this has happened to you, we may be able to prove that the combination of physical and mental losses is equivalent to the medical listing.
