When it comes to a catastrophic injury, when the head or neurological function of the individual is impacted, it can be among the most debilitating. Damage incurred from a head injury can be irreversible and life-altering. One area in which the body can be affected due to a neurological injury is cognitive disorders and deficits. When an accident leads to a cognitive deficit or disorder, mental function can be affected adversely. Capabilities that were once easy to complete are not difficult, including learning, memory, perception, and problem-solving. 

Understanding Cognitive Disorders & Deficits

The term cognition is used to describe the ability of the brain to think, process and store information as well as solve problems. A cognitive disorder is a condition where limited cognitive functioning is seen, based on one reason or another. Such a disorder is created when there is an interruption within the basic cognitive functions like perception, language development or perception. Such interruptions can include dementia, amnesia, anxiety disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorders, panic disorders, etc. 

Symptoms of a cognitive disorder will vary based on the type of condition one is diagnosed with. General symptoms can include: 

  • Agitation
  • Sleeplessness
  • Lethargy
  • Hallucinations/delusions
  • Memory Loss
  • Motor skills impairment

How is Daily Life Affected?

An individual with impaired brain function will be likely to forget assignments for work and have a reputation as someone who is not dependable. Even when it is known that you have a cognitive issue, the condition can lead to the loss of opportunity, particularly when considering employment. Work as well as relationships can be affected. Your overall quality of life can diminish which can lead to other issues such as depression. 

Treatment Options

When you have been diagnosed with a cognitive disorder, impairments are found within memory, judgment, and concentration. The underlying cause of the problem will determine the type of treatment you will be provided. Causes can include a traumatic injury, illness, depression, birth conditions or other factors. Medication can be used as a treatment option as well as therapies that work to improve cognition. However, such therapies are costly. 

Even with quality therapy, your life condition may not be improved drastically, especially if your condition is based on an accident or traumatic event. If you have suffered a catastrophic injury that resulted in cognitive disorder or deficiency, contact Cueria Law Firm today. We can help by reviewing your case and filing for compensation on your behalf. Our expertise can provide you with an added advantage in the process of seeking compensation for your injuries.
