Has anyone successfully gotten SSDI (Social Security Disability) approved with a brain injury?

Husband got his first denial, just filed the appeal after consulting with an attorney who told us to go ahead and file on our own and cross fingers for an approval (so that we wouldn’t have to pay the attorney for filing an appeal) but expect a denial.

My brother has a TBI to his frontal lobe and his face, he also was in surgery for 14 hours.
