Communication Disabilities from Traumatic Brain Injuries
When a person suffers a traumatic brain injury, or TBI, he or she may lose certain mental abilities as a result of the damage to the brain. In particular, an individual can develop language disorders that can prevent him or her from communicating effectively. This can be frustrating and often life-altering, as a communication disability may prevent a person from returning to work or participating in activities that he or she once enjoyed. Although there may be medical treatment available to mitigate the damage, the costs of treatment may be prohibitively expensive.

Common Types of Communication Disorders
Communication disorders resulting in language loss can vary greatly depending on the severity of the traumatic brain injury and the area of the brain that suffers damage. The following are common communication disabilities that can result from a TBI:
- Loss of fluent speaking abilities
- Loss of language comprehension, but not hearing loss
- Inability to write legibly
- Inability to write without severe pain
- Inability to read
- Weakened mechanical speech functions, causing pitch, tone, and volume problems
These language problems can directly affect an injured individual’s professional and personal lives.
A traumatic brain injury caused by another person’s carelessness may burden you and your household with considerable medical expenses as well as lost wages and other damages.
