Some injuries are fairly limited in the effects they have on a person, while others impact all sorts of different aspects of a person’s life. Often, brain injuries fall into the latter category.
Many different circumstances can result in a person suffering a brain injury. Whatever the circumstances, a brain injury can have many different types of effects on a person, such as:
- Mental effects: Some examples of the mental impairments/conditions a brain injury can cause a person to develop are: memory loss, impairment of cognitive function, depression and anxiety problems.
- Physical effects: Individuals sometimes develop physical disabilities as a result of a brain injury.
- Social effects: Brain injuries can impact a person’s emotional state and their capabilities when it comes to social interactions. This can have impacts on their relationships. Sometimes, brain injuries can even cause a person to experience marital troubles.
- Employment effects: Brain injuries sometimes cause a person to have to leave their job.
- Financial effects: A person can incur significant medical expenses in relation to a brain injury.
It often isn’t fully clear right after a brain injury occurs how impactful the injury will be, as some effects of a brain injury take awhile to become apparent. Thus, a person may have all manner of different questions, concerns and worries following suffering a brain injury.
