There are hundreds of thousands of soldiers currently returning from service overseas with a litany of conditions that leave them unable to work. One of the most common contributing factors to these conditions is Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). To be eligible for Veterans Disability Benefits because of a TBI though, the victim must present evidence of their condition and other health effects it caused.
The Department of Veterans Affairs has linked TBI with an increased chance of developing five other conditions, including:
- Parkinson’s Disease
- Diseases of the Hypothalamus and Pituitary Glands
Soldiers who have been diagnosed with both TBI and one of these conditions may be qualified for veterans disability benefits. According to an article from the Disabled American Veterans of Oklahoma, these conditions are now automatically considered service related if they manifest themselves in a patient who has suffered a TBI during military service.
In order to collect benefits for these conditions though, a doctor must diagnose them within a specific period of time.

Warnings are sufficient for some; however, for others a warning has little effect. Unfortunately, two drivers were killed despite police efforts to cut down on the fatalities over the holiday weekend, according to the McAlester News-Capital.
The two fatal McAlster auto accidents occurred when two boats collided and caused the first crash. The second McAlester auto accident occurred on U.S. Highway 69. A driver of one of the vehicles was stuck in the wreckage and had to be freed. However, that driver died as a result of the McAlester auto accident.
