How a Traumatic Brain Injury from a Car Accident Can Affect your Daily Life

Any injury to the brain has a significant impact on your daily life. Car accidents can result in traumatic brain injuries just as easily as minor accidents can. The sudden, fast violent movement that happens when cars collide can cause someone hit their head so hard that it can cause a traumatic brain injury. Your head can come in contact with the steering wheel, window, dashboard, or an object could hit you. Whiplash is also a very common injury that occurs from the sudden violent movements. list the physical, cognitive, and emotional impacts on that come from traumatic brain injuries. They are listed below:

Physical Impacts:

  • Muscle tone that interferes with normal movement.
  • Weakness that affects one side of the body more than another.
  • Sensory impairment 
  • Headaches 
  • Dizziness 
  • Fatigue 
  • Speech difficulties 
  • Balance and coordination problems 

Cognitive impacts: 

  • Attention and focus 
  • Memory 
  • Language 
  • Impairment in visual-perceptual skills, initiative- taking, and problem solving. 
  • Reduced perception and empathy 

Emotional impacts: 

  • Loss of inhibition 
  • Impulsiveness 
  • Irritability and or aggression 
  • Obsession 
  • Lack of enthusiasm
