Veterans may be eligible for compensation due to service-related traumatic brain injury.

There new methods of diagnosing traumatic brain injury at the VA . Testing for traumatic brain injury has become common-place at today’s Veterans Clinics. In 2008, the USA Today reported that VA hospitals have checked 190,000 troops returning from Afghanistan and Iraq for traumatic brain injury. Of those tested, 20% showed signs of traumatic brain injury. However, only 5% of those tested knew they were suffering from traumatic brain injury.
