Long-Term Effects of a Brain Injury
The brain is a delicate, sensitive organ, and even minor damage can have serious consequences. That’s what makes the long-term effects of a brain injury so serious—these injuries can impact your life in serious ways, impacting your brain’s health.
Unfortunately, you may be worried about your brain injury because someone caused your injuries. If you’ve suffered a traumatic brain injury, or TBI, because someone was negligent, you may have grounds for a lawsuit, but what long-term effects can you expect?
Every brain and every brain injury are different. But you can expect to see consequences for your brain injury in ways that can impact your life for years or even forever. Below are a few ways you may see the effects of a brain injury.
Physical Consequences for Your Brain
When you’ve suffered a brain injury, your brain may suffer physical damage that impacts its ability to function. Your brain is the control center for the rest of the body, so damage that impacts it can have major consequences. If you were in an accident in Wisconsin and suffered brain damage, you may be impacted for years by your TBI symptoms.
For example, some people who have had a TBI may suffer from seizures after the accident. These seizures can impact your ability to work, drive, and live on your own. Worse, your TBI can impact other parts of your brain, damaging it and its ability to control the rest of your body.
Mental and Emotional Impacts
A traumatic injury doesn’t only impact your physical health. Losing control of parts of your body or losing senses can be devastating mentally and emotionally. For example, you may have lost the ability to hear, speak, or walk because of your traumatic brain injury. You’ve lost more than a sense or ability—you’ve lost a part of your ability to communicate and take care of yourself.
Because of this, you may find yourself suffering from serious emotional and mental consequences because of your injuries. Many TBI victims suffer from feelings of anxiety or depression because of their injuries. You may be due more compensation because of the serious emotional and mental toll of your suffering.
