Identifying Your Brain Injury Symptoms

Each section of the human brain is responsible for different functions. Symptoms vary in intensity depending on the type of brain injury you have suffered. People who suffer from the effects of mild traumatic brain injuries or post-concussive syndrome may recover in a few months or may take a few years. Those who suffer more serious traumatic brain injuries often suffer prolonged or permanent changes, which can range from physical problems to cognitive deficits. The type of symptoms an individual will suffer may also vary depending on which part of the brain was injured.

The following brain injuries have varying symptoms, such as:

  • Frontal lobe injury: Inability to multi-task, organic, or perform basic work functions. Loss of motor functions, personality changes and mood swings, as well as a loss of drive are also common.
  • Temporal lobe injury: Inability to recognize words, decreased speech perception, long-term/short-term memory loss, inability to recognize faces, and even seizures.
  • Occipital lobe injury: Partial loss of visual field, reading and writing impairments, inability to identify movement of objects, hallucinations, and color agnosia.
  • Parietal lobe injury: Loss of hand/eye coordination, inability to control visual movement, loss of awareness of body parts, inability to recall words.
  • Brain stem injury: Memory loss, vertigo, less of strength or coordination, difficulty swallowing, decreased breathing, and sleeping issues.

Neuropsychological testing is able to pinpoint the portion of your brain that is injured. By using this technology, you can not only get more accurate treatment for your specific injury, but also craft a better claim demonstrating the severity of your suffering.
