What Should You Do After A Car Accident?

Receptive Aphasia

A person who suffers a brain injury in a traumatic accident or because of a physician’s negligence may develop a serious language disorder known as receptive aphasia. This type of brain injury makes it difficult for a person to make sense of spoken language. This means that an affected person can hear sounds around them, but they may not be able to understand any of the language being spoken to them. Additionally, they may have problems producing coherent speech in some instances.

If you have suffered a brain injury because of another party’s recklessness or negligence, contact the Jacksonville brain injury lawyers at the Law Offices of Donald Guthrie by calling 904-296-1088 today.

The Signs of Receptive Aphasia

An injury to the language centers of the brain can seriously impact an individual’s language skills in a variety of ways. These injuries can range from a slight loss of abilities to a total loss of comprehension. A person suffering from this disorder may illustrate the following signs and symptoms:

  • Loss of language comprehension
  • Leaving out important words when speaking
  • Word confusion
  • Use of invented words

There may be treatment options available for individuals with receptive aphasia to help them regain some of their language abilities. However, these treatments can be incredibly expensive and time-consuming. To help pay for these treatments, a person may pursue compensation from the negligent party that caused their injury.
