What Does the VA Have to Offer Veterans with Traumatic Brain Injuries?

If you’re a veteran working with a disability benefits lawyer, you can cut through red tape and generally receive benefits much more quickly. A traumatic brain injury (TBI) can be very serious. As a result, the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has given it serious attention for more than 20 years.

The Defense and Veteran’s Brain Injury Center (DVBIC) is a division of the Military Health System that serves veterans who suffer from brain injuries. The DVBIC offers cutting-edge clinical care, educational programs and ongoing clinical research. The DVBIC was established in 1992, and at that time it consisted of three Department of Defense (DoD) medical centers and three VA medical centers. By partnering with the VA and Department of Defense, the DVBIC expanded its network. Today it includes the following: central headquarters in the national capital area, eleven military treatment facilities, five VA medical centers and two neurorehabilitation community reintegration centers.

From the day you’re injured, through your return to duty or return into civilian life, the DVBIC offers treatment, support and training. This is true for service members, veterans and their family members. Research programs have developed evaluation protocols for head injuries. Mental testing helps identify TBI quickly, which is sometimes hard to diagnose compared with other types of injuries. Since 2007, the DVBIC has conducted 672 TBI research studies, and plans to use its findings in clinical practice. Hopefully, ongoing research and implementation will continue to improve the treatments veterans receive for TBI.

  • Thank to Mr. Spencer I was able to get my VA disability claim re-reviewed and given another chance to receive disability. By far he is one of the most professional lawyers I have ever dealt with. So Veterans if you are looking for help with your VA disability claim I would suggest that you hire Macari, Russotto, Spencer, & Balaban. Thanks again for everything.

They helped me understand what I needed to do and prepared and presented to the VA an excellent presentation of my case. I recommend them for your legal needs.
