The Lasting Damages From Brain Injury Accidents

When a person sustains substantial trauma to his or her head, the individual may experience a serious brain injury that can cause issues including long-term language disabilities. This language loss can dramatically impact a person’s day-to-day life, making it difficult or even impossible to interact with co-workers and loved ones. While treatment is often available for different language disorders, the expense involved is usually too much for an injured individual to manage. However, if another person or party caused the brain injury, the victim should consider discussing his or her right to financial compensation with a McAllen personal injury attorney at Patino Law Firm.

Brain Injuries and Language Disabilities

A traumatic brain injury, or TBI, may result in the loss of language abilities that are crucial for a person’s everyday life. These disabilities may include the following language concerns:

  • Inability to produce language
  • Inability to comprehend language, even though hearing is unchanged
  • Inability to write legibly
  • Inability to read written language
  • Nerve damage affecting speech organs

In addition to these language disabilities, a person may suffer the sensory loss that can affect vision or hearing. While these disabilities may not affect a person’s language skills in a cognitive sense, they can make it extremely difficult to communicate. Although these language disorders may be treated in some cases, it is often at a high cost for the injured individual. Speech therapy, surgery, and medication can all improve an injured individual’s language skills, but they may come with a heavy financial burden.
