People with traumatic brain injuries (TBI's) have disabilities that can seem subtle, but in fact significantly interfere with work, family relationships, and other social relationships. Because the disabilities can be difficult to detect with basic cognitive testing, insurance companies sometimes deny benefits to people with TBI's who are in fact disabled. Learn how experts can detect the disabilities suffered after TBI.
