A traumatic brain injury is one of the most frightening experiences a person will face.  Whether you are the family member hoping your loved one fully recovers from a head trauma or an accident victim who has survived a traumatic brain injury, you are going to be dealing with a lot of uncertainty.  Many of the long-term repercussions of a brain injury take weeks and sometimes months to surface. 

One of the side effects of a traumatic brain injury that develops usually right after the accident or within a few days has to do with impaired cognition.  Sometimes, patients suffer from posttraumatic amnesia.

There are many disabilities that can result from a severe brain injury, such as sensory problems, difficulty recognizing objects, tinnitus, language difficulties, speech challenges and depression.  People who have sustained a traumatic brain injury may also experience a change in personality and may start to abuse drugs or alcohol.

Severe head trauma isn’t the only injury that leads to disabilities.  A mild to moderate traumatic brain injury can also result in problems, including difficulty with organization, problem solving and abstract reasoning.
