What emotional issues can be caused by brain injuries?

The way in which we experience life is defined by the functions of our brain. We use our five senses to gather information about the world around us and our brain processes that information and provides feedback. This feedback guides us in our actions and allows us to understand and react to our circumstances. Should we ever experience a traumatic brain injury, then our ability to function can be severely impaired.

Traumatic brain injuries can cause many different problems. Those with TBI may suffer such effects as blurred vision, loss of memory or even they may even slip into a coma. But what kinds of emotional consequences could a brain injury victim face?

Of TBI sufferers, around half experience depression at some point during the first year following their injury. Almost two-thirds of TBI sufferers have symptoms of depression within seven years following their injury.

The factors contributing to this depression can vary greatly from individual to individual. Sometimes the depression may be due to an alteration of the brain’s physical make-up. This alteration could change the levels of chemicals known as neurotransmitters.

The depression could also be brought on as a person tries adjusting to the changes in their personal circumstances due to the brain injury. They may endure frustrations caused by not being able to function in the manner to which they were accustomed.

Fortunately, there are treatments and medications that can help alleviate the symptoms of depression. However, treatments and medications cost money and they may be required for a long period of time.

Brain injuries can be caused by such incidents as car accidents and medical negligence. If someone suffers from such an injury due to the actions of others, then all responsible parties should be held accountable for damages.

If you, or a family member, have experienced a brain injury, you might want to consider issuing a legal response to those who may be at fault. An Arizona brain injury attorney could look at what happened and help you seek compensation for your current and future needs.
