If you know someone who has experienced a frontal lobe injury, you are probably trying everything you can to help him recover. Unfortunately, this type of injury can cause a long and difficult recovery—and depending on the full extent of the injury, he may never be the same person he was before the accident.
A frontal lobe injury in Louisville may cause problems with:
- Concentration, including attention deficits, an inability focus, or wandering away during long conversations
- Communication, such as difficulty speaking, or understanding what is being said
- Organization, such as an inability to make plans or put daily tasks in the correct order
- Bodily movements, including pacing, twitching, spasming, or controlling different body parts
- Mental agility, such as multitasking or switching thought processes
- Personality changes, including mania (sudden impulsive or risky behavior) or anger
- Loss of inhibitions, causing non-socially-acceptable behavior
- Depression or other emotional disturbances as victims cope with their condition
- Self-awareness (victims may not notice distinct changes in their own behavior)
The effects of a frontal lobe injury are not only serious, they are often permanent. Victims may be unlikely to earn their own living after a head injury—and if they are able to work, they will usually suffer a severe reduction in their earning capacity.
