Brain Injury Attorneys in SC
Whether caused by an impact (a fall or car accident), internal damage (gunshot or surgical intrusion) or lack of oxygen, the damage caused by a traumatic brain injury is not always apparent.
Brain injuries that are moderate to severe are one of the leading causes of disability. The long-term effects of a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) can place enormous hardships on finances and personal relationships. If you, a relative or loved one has been hospitalized for a serious brain injury, speak to the community relations personnel at the hospital right away and have them assist you with submitting an initial claim for Social Security benefits (SSI or SSDI). Forms can also be completed online.
The application process can be slow and cumbersome, so it's important to get a claim started as soon as possible.
Many times the initial request is denied even if the brain injury is severe. There is typically a 45-60 day window in which you can obtain an attorney and file an appeal for your claim. This timeline is critical and you do not want to miss this window.
