What could be some health impacts caused by brain injuries?

Nobody is ever prepared for a sudden brain injury, nor to lose as much functionality as they do after one happens. Their families may be strained trying to cope, and everyone involved in the situation may worry about what's going to come next.

The good news is that adults with brain injuries can discuss their case with their doctors and other professionals, so that they can prepare for the treatments they need as well as any ongoing care that would help them.

One of the major concerns is how a brain injury will impact the individual's health in the long term. The recovery process can take many weeks, months or years, and there is no guarantee that anyone will recover completely. Brain injuries tend to be long-lasting, especially when they were initially severe.

Some of the long-term illnesses or symptoms that people may struggle with following a brain injury include:

  • Dementia
  • Cognitive decline
  • Parkinson's disease
  • Endocrine disorders
  • Seizures
  • Fatigue
  • Headaches

You or your loved one may have additional symptoms based on where they injury took place. A blow to the back of the head, for example, may impact your vision in the short- or long-term. Your medical team will be able to tell you more about what to expect in terms of your health as you continue to recover.

Living with a brain injury is life-altering

Living with a brain injury is life-altering and may result in major changes in a career, home life or family life. Your attorney can talk to you more about how to seek compensation from the party that caused any injuries that you or a loved one are dealing with today.
