What Should You Do After A Car Accident?

Dysgraphia after an Injury

When a person sustains serious injuries to the head or nerves, they may develop a cognitive or motor condition known as dysgraphia. Dysgraphia is a disorder that makes it exceedingly difficult for a person to write legibly or spell correctly. This disorder can prove extremely troublesome for a suffering individual who may struggle to perform essential personal and professional tasks as a result.

If you have been afflicted with dysgraphia due to an accident caused by the negligence of another party, a civil lawsuit may be appropriate. A skilled and experienced lawyer can help you to better understand your legal rights in this matter. Contact Jacksonville personal injury lawyer Donald Guthrie, P.A., at 904-296-1088 to discuss your case and the possibility of financial compensation.

Symptoms of Dysgraphia

Dysgraphia is used as an umbrella term to describe different disorders that affect a person’s ability to write. These disorders can impair either a person’s physical or mental ability to write. This means that a person only suffering from dysgraphia will not lose the ability to speak or create language. Instead, they will only find the act of writing difficult.

The following are notable symptoms of dysgraphia:

  • Difficulty spelling words
  • Pain or discomfort while writing
  • Inability to write legibly
  • Difficulty managing spatial dimensions on paper

A person with dysgraphia may suffer from different symptoms depending on how they have been injured. In some cases, this disorder can affect cognitive abilities like measuring the shape and space of a word on a page. In other cases, this disorder can result in a physical inability to write.
