What are Some of the Potential Long-Term Effects of a Severe Brain Injury After a Car Accident?

After an accident, brain injury can occur, which often times leads to long-term effects including motor damage and certain neurological diseases.

Brain injuries can affect cognitive, physical and psychological skills. In addition to the direct symptoms and effects of a brain injury, such as loss of consciousness, mental confusion and blurred vision, numerous long-term effects may develop over time.

Post-Injury Problems of Brain Injury from Car Accident

  • Parkinson’s Disease – Parkinson’s, a chronic and progressive disorder, may develop after a brain injury as a result of damage to the basal ganglia, a brain structure that controls movement.
  • Alzheimer’s Disease – the more severe the head injury, the higher the chances are of developing Alzheimer’s disease, a progressive, neurodegenerative disease.
  • Dementia – dementia, which is characterized by long-term memory problems, can result from accidents that cause a coma-inducing brain injury.

Life can change in the blink of an eye when you or a loved one is involved in a car accident. Getting the best medical treatment available, both immediate and long-term, is vital to maintaining the highest possible degree of health.
