Our brains are responsible for every function in our body. It regulates our breathing, tell us when we’re sleepy, help us recall names and faces, and stores our happiest memories. It’s easy to take the functions of the brain for granted until they are no longer working correctly. Victims of brain injuries can suffer from a variety of symptoms and difficulties, including impairments related to:

  • Physical. Brain injury victims may have difficulty walking, swallowing their food, or may lose control over some of their body movement or sensations.
  • Emotional. Some brain injuries result in emotional issues such as depression, anxiety, and even suicidal ideation.
  • Cognitive. Brain injuries can result in a loss of the ability to do simple arithmetic, being able to tell time, recall and/or make new memories..
  • Social. Some brain injuries affect the patient’s social intelligence and skills, affecting their ability to maintain conversations, deal with stress or loss, or pick up on social cues, leading them to act inappropriately in public.
  • Communications. Brain injuries can cause communication skills to disappear, including the ability to speak or accurately express feelings.

These are just some of the difficulties that people can experience after a brain injury. The repercussions are long lasting and life-altering. They can be devastating to the patient as well as to their friends and family. And when the damage was because of someone else’s negligence, it makes it that much worse.
