How Can a Brain Injury Impact My Life?

Traumatic brain injuries are some of the most difficult to experience. They can significantly impact your entire life, leaving you dealing with the physical and emotional damages that create ongoing hardships. It’s vital to pursue compensation to help cover many of the losses you experience in the years following a severe and traumatic brain injury.

Physical Effects

Brain injuries can impact your physical well-being in numerous ways. Not only do you experience the pain of the injury itself, but the damage to your brain can also cause additional effects, including the following:

  • Ongoing seizures
  • Loss of bladder and bowel control
  • Sleep disorders
  • Vision and hearing problems

In many situations, you may experience balance and coordination issues. The physical impacts can lower someone’s quality of life.

Mental Effects

Cognitive effects are common when someone suffers a severe brain injury. You may require ongoing medical care, which can help with treatment, but some of the cognitive effects are more difficult to overcome. Mental effects of a TBI include:

  • Trouble focusing
  • Easily distracted
  • Ongoing confusion and memory loss
  • Difficulty with executive functions
  • Slower processing abilities

Any kind of brain injury can also lead to vision, hearing, and sensory effects. It can lead to behavioral changes, including an increase in aggression and agitation. Therapy may be necessary whenever you suffer a brain injury. Brain injuries can occur in nearly any type of accident, so if you experience this damage, it’s vital to understand your rights.
