Wellington Social Security Disability Lawyer and Attorney, Randy Zeldin, Esq., is proud to have been serving this community for over 20 years. Unfortunately, there are many cases of brain injury, including in Wellington and West Palm Beach, Florida, which form the basis for Social Security Disability entitlement. Each year in the United States, 1.5 million persons sustain brain injuries. Of these injuries, 235,000 require hospitalization and nearly one-half of these are characterized as severe to moderate injuries. These injuries are result of a combination of causes, including falls; motor vehicle/traffic accidents or assaults. Motorcycle accidents, particularly when there is not helmet worn, are responsible for many serious head injuries.
Mechanisms of brain injury include acceleration-deceleration injuries; rotational injuries; axonal “strains,” degenerating axons; brainstem injuries and diffuse axonal injuries. “Open head” injuries include skull fracture, which are either depressed, compound or missile injuries. “Closed Head Injuries” include contusions, hemorrhage and infarctions. Hematoma and hemorrhage are common outcomes of these injuries.
Symptoms of brain injuries, which can form the basis for Social Security Disability, encompass Cognitive Deficits, such as attention and concentration, initiation and goal direction, judgment and perception, learning and memory, speed of information processing and communications deficits. Additionally, brain injuries can cause severe social and behavioral changes. These can result in problems impacting an individual’s capacity to work, such as apathy, social inappropriateness/lewdness; boisterousness, profanity, increased risk taking and impulsivity and distractibility. Any of these symptoms or a combination thereof, can severely impair an individual’s ability to return to work in the Village of Wellington or greater metropolitan West Palm Beach job markets.
