Driving After a Kentucky Brain Injury: What You Need to Know

Every brain injury case is different, and each will come with its own set of particular symptoms. The extent of the damage will greatly affect a victim’s recovery. For example, some mild traumatic brain injuries cause sensory issues, but no noticeable cognitive problems. If the brain was allowed to swell under the skull, however, a temporal lobe injury could cause mental impairment if any brain cells were lost after the trauma.


A temporal lobe injury in Kentucky could cause any or all of the following symptoms:


  • Memory issues, such as the inability to names, dates, or regularly-accessed facts
  • Sequencing problems, such as interrupted organization skills or an inability to arrange information in the proper order
  • Language difficulties, including problems speaking or understanding verbal communication
  • Hearing problems, such as impaired hearing or constant ringing in the ears
  • Behavior changes, such as sudden mood swings, impulsive decisions or personality reversal


The best thing you can do for your child is be as patient as possible during his recovery. Victims are often scared and frustrated as they cope with their injuries, so they will need time and understanding as they learn how to live.
