What long-term issues can result from brain injury?

California residents like you who have gotten into a severe crash with a truck before may be at a higher risk for a traumatic brain injury, or TBI. Due to the size of trucks and the speeds people tend to be traveling at on the freeway, where trucks most frequently share the road with passenger vehicles, accidents often result in more complex injuries. What long-term issues can therefore be caused by a TBI?

According to the American Speech-Hearing-Language Association, TBI can cause many long and short term deficits in a sufferer. Short term deficits are things you can recover from in a relatively small timeframe, such as unconsciousness, nausea, and issues with balance. Other issues, however, take a longer time to recover from. This can include issues with personality, cognitive function, behavior, and motor skills. This depends on the areas of the brain that were damaged and how intense said damage was.

If you've suffered from a TBI, you could experience mood swings. Irritability and combative behavior is both common, though they may not last quite as long as other issues. An increase in impulsivity could be a long-term change you may have to deal with. Memory issues can also be a long-term problem. Many TBI sufferers find themselves having trouble with remembering daily tasks or other things tied to short-term memory, and this may persist.

Seeking medical treatment is one way to combat or potentially lessen the severity of these long-term issues. Unfortunately, many of them will continue to persist, and limiting or carefully monitoring them is the best option.
