brain-accident-cases-illinoisThe brain is one organ that still has many mysteries to unlock. Two people could each have seemingly identical blows to their heads that result in completely different brain injuries. Different parts of the brain could be affected, which may lead to diverse issues throughout the body. Injuries can occur from something as small as a fall on a bike to something much more serious like a car accident or even playing too roughly with friends or getting shoved and hitting your head on a hard surface. When someone suffers from a brain injury, a number of changes can occur including how a person acts, thinks, feels, and even moves. Other effects that may take place that are less noticeable to others include body temperature regulation, bowel and bladder control, and blood pressure. The Brain Injury Association of America explains different areas of the brain that, if injured, can affect certain functions. Parietal Lobe:
  • Differentiation of sizes, colors, and shapes
  • Spatial perception
  • Sense of touch
  • Visual perception
Frontal Lobe:
  • Problem solving
  • Personality
  • Organization
  • Emotions
  • Attention and concentration
  • Speaking
  • Planning and anticipation
  • Inhibition of behavior
  • Awareness of abilities and limitations
Occipital Lobe:
  • Vision
Brain Stem:
  • Heart rate
  • Arousal and consciousness
  • Attention and concentration
  • Sleep and wake cycles
  • Breathing
Cerebellum:
  • Coordination
  • Balance
  • Skilled motor activity
  • Visual perception
Temporal Lobe:
  • Hearing and understanding language
  • Organization
  • Sequencing
  • Memory
If certain symptoms are seen in a patient that suffered from a head trauma, doctors can figure out what part of the brain was affected based on the symptoms. The injured part of the brain is also determined based on which side of the brain is affected. When the left side is injured, patients may suffer from:
  • Impaired logic
  • Difficulties in speaking and understanding language
  • Troubles with sequencing events
  • Catastrophic reactions such as depression and anxiety
  • General difficulty controlling the right side of the body
When the right side of the brain is injured, patients may suffer from:
  • Decreased awareness of difficulties
  • Loss of understanding the broader picture
  • Visual memory and spatial problems
  • Changes in creative and music understanding
  • General difficulty controlling and lack of attention to the left side of the body
If the entire brain has been affected, these symptoms may be witnessed:
  • Confusion
  • Fatigue
  • Reduced speed of thought
  • Impaired cognitive thinking
  • Reduced concentration and general attention
If you have been in an accident and have witnessed one or more of these symptoms in yourself, contact an Illinois accident attorney to seek justice for your injury. Sometimes injuries do not show themselves immediately, but when the symptoms arise, it is important to seek medical attention and legal attention. Attorneys at the Mevorah Law Offices LLC will help you seek compensation for your accident injury in Illinois today.
