Language Disorders from Brain Injuries

A person can sustain major brain damage in a traumatic event or due to a medical mistake. When this occurs, they can lose the ability to comprehend or produce language. In some cases a person may lose their language abilities due to damage to certain language-specific areas of the brain. Additionally, some brain damage can affect the areas responsible for motor skills and muscle functions that are necessary to produce language.

If you are coping with the loss of linguistic capabilities due to the negligence of another party, you may be able to seek financial compensation through a civil lawsuit.

Major Types of Language Disorders Caused by Negligence

Language disorders can have a serious adverse effect on a person's life. These disorders can lead to a variety of effects, each of which is capable of diminishing a person's ability to handle complex communication. A person may find it difficult to continue working at their job or to maintain interpersonal relationships. These professional and social problems can drastically change a person's quality of life. The following types of language disorders can result from brain or nerve damages:

  • Aphasia, or the loss of language skills
  • Dysarthria, or the loss of motor strength in speech organs
  • Dysgraphia, or the loss of written skills

These language disorders can eventually be rehabilitated in some cases. However, these treatments can prove expensive, time-consuming, and may not completely repair the harm.
