The brain is divided into distinct sections, with the frontal lobes being two of the most important areas. These are large structures located at the front of the brain, located just behind and above the eyes.
The frontal lobe is responsible for executive functions such as abstract thinking, problem solving, behavioral inhibition and language processing. Damage to this area of the brain can bring on a variety of impulse control problems as well as cognitive impairment.
The frontal lobe is a sensitive part of the brain, and is also responsible for your personality. When you sustain a brain injury which affects your frontal lobe, it’s possible to lose your sense of self and large chunks of your temperament and personality.
Here are some of the signs and symptoms associated with frontal lobe damage:
- Personality changes
- Loss of facial expression
- Inappropriate sexual behavior
- Heightened risk taking
- Poor self control
- Motor control issues
- Poor memory
- Increased aggression
- Reduced attention
- Little to no spontaneity
- Poor focus
- Poor sense of spatial awareness
- Loss of limb movement
What to expect following a frontal lobe brain injury.
Diagnosis and treatment for frontal lobe damage is complicated. You or your loved one may need to see a team of specialists who will assess the damage before coming up with a medical treatment plan. Due to the severity of these injuries, you may not regain full control of some of your faculties, or it may take you a long time to get back to normal. Surgery may be needed if there are bone fragments, fractures, or excessive swelling, and a surgeon may also put in a stent to deal with any subsequent swelling or bleeding that may occur as a result of these injuries.
After surgery, you may need a speech therapist and extensive physical therapy to help you regain your language and motor skills. During treatment, expect to have a range of MRI scans, CT scans and x-rays ordered by doctors, and a range of other tests to check on inflammation markers. In addition, you may need additional surgery in the future, and you may be required to go through years of rehabilitation—all of which can cost a pretty penny.
If your loved one’s brain injury was caused by the actions of another person or the negligence of an employer, why should the financial burden of these damages fall onto the victim and their family? As a personal injury lawyer, it’s my job to help victims recover the compensation they’re owed from those responsible for their injuries. It’s all we do, and we have a great track record of success over the past 20+ years.
