Traumatic Brain Injury Can Result in Long-Term Disabilities

A brain injury suffered in a New Hampshire car accident or other type of accident can cause serious immediate symptoms, such as dizziness, nausea, inability to think clearly or even loss of consciousness. Treating a brain injury promptly can help reduce the severity of these symptoms, but some people who suffer concussions or other such trauma can develop long-term or permanent disabilities, according to the National Institutes of Health.

Conditions that may be caused or aggravated by a traumatic brain injury include Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, dementia pugilistica, and other kinds of motor problems and/or post-traumatic dementia. Long-term or permanent symptoms can include loss of control over some or all body parts or functions, memory loss, dementia, or a lack of awareness of basic facts such as time, location, and identity. Other effects include loss of cognitive abilities including the ability to read, memorize, understand facts, or perform basic tasks. Some of these symptoms or conditions may become permanent and people who have them often need long-term or continuing medical care and therapy.

Brain injuries can have consequences that extend far beyond the initial injury. A traumatic brain injury can leave a person with permanent brain damage and change the course of his or her life.
