The Aftermath of a Brain Injury

The brain is an incredibly complex organ that researchers have hardly begun to understand. When a person suffers damage to his or her brain, there is no reliable way to predict exactly how he or she will be affected. Sadly, there is also no way to reverse the damage of most brain injuries, although individual symptoms may be treatable.

A serious brain injury can change the lives of the victim and his or her loved ones. To learn about legal options for victims of brain damage, call a Des Moines personal injury lawyer of LaMarca Law Group, P.C. at (515) 705-0233.

Major Life Changes

Because the brain is the center of all mental and physical activity, virtually any part of a person’s health and lifestyle can be affected by brain damage. Most of the potential consequences of a serious brain injury can be divided into three basic categories:

Neurological impairment. This damage to the central nervous system can affect a person’s motor skills and physical abilities. Victims may suffer lost or damaged hearing, sight, smell, taste, and touch. They may also experience paralysis, loss of muscle coordination, speech difficulties, or sexual dysfunction.

Psychological impairment. Head injury victims can suffer from sudden and severe changes in their emotional states. They may lose control over their emotions and behaviors, becoming increasingly aggressive or impulsive. Other patients experience symptoms like hallucinations, depression, anxiety, or delusional beliefs.

Cognitive impairment. The term “cognitive ability” refers to a person’s planning and information processing skills. People with cognitive impairment may have difficulty learning new tasks, understanding spatial relationships, or making even simple decisions. Language skills such as reading, writing, and speech can also be impaired.
