Effects of Traumatic Brain Injuries

Most people would agree that the brain is the most important organ of the body. It serves as the processing center for thought, personality, and memory, which collectively represent what we tend to regard as an individual’s identity. From a survival standpoint, however, the brain’s other functions are far more critical to sustaining one’s life. When an accident or assault results in an injury to the brain, both the short-term and long-term effects can be striking and also deeply troubling.

The medical expenses alone are likely to strain a family affected by traumatic brain injury, but they represent only a small portion of the damages and difficulties that arise. Hold the negligent person or enterprise accountable for the traumatic brain injury that has befallen you or your loved one.

Adverse Effects of Brain Trauma

One of the most distressing things about injuries to the brain is the fact that the brain cannot mend itself in the way that other parts of the body can. Once damage is inflicted, the effects generally cannot be undone. Some of the possible adverse effects of brain trauma include:

  • Memory loss
  • Inability to form new memories
  • Cognitive impairment
  • Personality and behavioral changes
  • Loss of independence due to compromised ability to regulate involuntary functions
  • Coma
