Lasting Effects of a Brain Injury

The most severe traumatic brain injuries can result in long-term cognitive, behavioral and physical disabilities. More than 5 million Americans who have suffered traumatic brain injury need assistance performing daily activities, according to WebMD*. Whether a brain injury causes lasting injuries depends largely on how severe the injury was and how long the person remains unconscious after the trauma. TBIs have the potential to cause these serious, lasting injuries:

  • No memory of the event that resulted in the brain injury
  • Learning problems
  • Memory problems
  • Speech problems
  • Vision and hearing problems
  • Lack of coordination
  • May increase the risk of Alzheimer’s or certain types of dementia
