The frontal lobe of the brain sits just above the eyes as is considered our emotional control center and home to our personality. Due to its location, it is very susceptible to traumatic brain injury (TBI) in car, bus or truck accidents, football or sports injuries or occupational injuries. If the frontal lobe of the brain is injured it could lead to significant personality changes, language difficulties, memory loss as well as other neurological problems. There is no other part of the brain that if injured, can lead to such a wide variety of problems or symptoms.
A traumatic brain injury (TBI) to the frontal lobe can cause the following:
- Inability to choose in between good and bad choices
- Inability to recognize the consequences of certain actions
- Loss of fine motor movements and strength of arms, hands and fingers
- Limited facial expressions
- Difficulty speaking
- Changes in IQ level
- Speaking fewer words with left frontal lobe injury
- Speaking excessively with right frontal lobe injury
- Difficulty problem solving
- Memory loss
- Altered spatial orientation
- Pseudo depression
- Pseudo psychopathy
- Abnormal sexual behavior
- Abnormal social behavior
Any injury to the frontal lobe after an accident, injury or faulty helmet can lead to lifelong behavioral problems, speech problems, memory deficits or motor difficulties. If you or a loved one suffered from a TBI that affected the frontal lobe of the brain you may be eligible for compensation.
