A traumatic brain injury could affect almost every area of life

Suffering a serious injury can have lasting effects on a person's life. In some cases, injuries are catastrophic because of the severe damage caused. If you suffer this type of injury, you may find yourself losing abilities that you once had and having to learn new ways to live your life.

In particular, traumatic brain injuries can cause a number of issues in injury victims' lives. You could suffer a TBI as a result of a car accident or other event in which your head sustains a hit. In some cases, a TBI may not have lasting effects, but if your injury is severe, your life could end up with significant changes.

TBI effects

Because your brain is such an important organ and controls many of your bodily functions, a serious brain injury could leave you with many diminished abilities. When it comes to your cognitive abilities, you could experience the following difficulties:

  • Memory problems
  • Impulsiveness
  • Attention problems
  • Trouble thinking
  • Persistent repetition of a word or action
  • Becoming easily distracted
  • Difficulty processing information

Your cognitive abilities are not the only ones that a TBI could diminish. You could also suffer motor deficits, such as:

  • Vision problems
  • Paralysis
  • Loss of fine motor skills
  • Trouble moving objects
  • Muscle stiffness
  • Uncontrolled movements

Unfortunately, the negative impacts of a moderate to severe traumatic brain injury do not stop there.

Additional impacts

If you suffer a TBI, you could also have to contend with a variety of physical effects of the injury. Some of those impacts may include the following:

  • Trouble swallowing
  • Seizures
  • Loss of control over your bowel and bladder functions
  • Chronic pain
  • Changes in appetite
  • Sleep problems
  • Hormonal changes
  • Becoming easily fatigued

You may also lose abilities associated with your speech, vision, sensory perception and behavior. As you can see, a TBI can easily affect almost every area of your life.

Seeking compensation

If your TBI was caused by a car accident that resulted from another driver's negligence or recklessness, you may have reason to file a personal injury claim against that person. This type of legal action could allow you to pursue compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages, and other damages allowable under Georgia state law.

Taking this type of action can be complicated. Fortunately, you do not have to attempt to carry out a legal claim on your own. You may find it helpful to consider enlisting the help of an attorney to better understand your options.
