The life changing effects of a brain injury
Every situation is different and every victim is different. People react differently to the same situation, but with brain injuries quite often the victim has no control over their reactions. They may well experience:
- A loss of or altered speech;
- A shorter concentration span;
- Problems with balance, walking and coordination;
- Weakness or paralysis;
- Problems with speed of thought;
- Memory loss;
- Changes in emotional reactions;
- Behavioural changes;
- Altered senses of smell, taste and touch; and
- Anxiety and depression.
The life changing effects of brain injuries can alter a person so much that for the family it is like living with a different person, and they will suffer as well as the victim. The victim may no longer be capable of dealing with their own affairs, and if this is the case then a family member should make the claim on their behalf.
