What Should You Do After A Car Accident?

Agnosia After Brain Injuries

Brain damage is a very serious concern in any head injury. This can leave a person with weakened mental functioning in addition to physical disabilities. In some cases, this damage can result in a type of brain injury known as agnosia. Agnosia is any injury that results in a person’s inability to gain information or perceive the world around them

If you or someone you love has sustained serious brain trauma in an accident caused by another person’s negligent actions, you may be entitled to financial compensation. To discuss your legal options, contact Jacksonville personal injury attorney Donald Guthrie, P.A., today at 904-296-1088.

Types of Agnosia

Brain disorders classified as agnosia can be serious life problems. Many times, these injuries require substantial therapy to overcome. However, these disorders can potentially have a permanent impact on a person’s life, leaving them without the ability to succeed at their work or participate in other activities they once enjoyed.

The following types of agnosia may result from substantial brain injuries:

  • Inability to recognize shapes
  • Inability to separate music from unorganized noise
  • Inability to create comprehensible language
  • Inability to make sense of spoken language
  • Inability to match a person’s face with their voice
  • Inability to recognize colors

Due to the intricacies of the brain, there are many other types of agnosia that may be unique to each individual. However, this brain disorder can still be frustrating and even disabling.
