Can traumatic brain injury cause memory loss?

It goes without saying that nobody wants to suffer a traumatic brain injury. Not only can this impact your life now, but it can lead to many symptoms and side effects that cause trouble in the future.

One of the biggest issues associated with traumatic brain injury is memory loss. While no two people are the same, this is often a result of a brain injury.

Here are some things that you need to remember:

-- Memory problems are extremely common in people who suffer a moderate or severe traumatic brain injury.

-- A traumatic brain injury has the potential to damage many parts of the brain, including those that are responsible for memory.

-- Although traumatic brain injury most commonly impacts short-term memory, it can do the same to long-term memory.

-- In many cases, a person who suffers traumatic brain injury may not be able to remember the events surrounding the accident that led to the injury in the first place.

-- There are strategies that people can use to overcome memory problems associated with traumatic brain injury.

There is no guarantee that a person will suffer memory loss associated with traumatic brain injury. At the same time, many people realize that their short- and long- term memory is negatively impacted.

If you or a loved one has suffered this type of injury, it's important to get the best available medical treatment. Along with this, due to the fact that the impact of the injury could last forever, it's important to learn more about your legal rights in regards to receiving compensation.
