Can Brain Injuries Change Your Personality?

When a person suffers a brain injury, it can result in many long-term side effects, such as chronic headaches, memory loss, and even sleep issues. But can brain injuries alter a person’s personality? Read more to find out.

Mood & Personality Changes After a TBI

Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) affect everyone differently. An injury that may result in memory loss in one person may result in muscle weakness for another. Although TBIs might not always affect a person physically, they will affect them mentally. Since a TBI can significantly impact a person’s mental well-being, it makes it one of the most difficult injuries to treat.

It is not uncommon for a person who suffered a traumatic brain injury to experience significant personality alterations. For example, a person may experience the following mood and behavioral changes after suffering a TBI:

  • Depression
  • Aggression
  • Agitation
  • Erratic moods
  • Loss of trust
  • Memory loss
  • Impaired judgment

How Long Do Side-Effects Last?

Everyone’s recovery process from a brain injury is different. Some symptoms may clear up over time, some may last for years, and some may be permanent. Personality changes and mood swings following a brain injury can be confusing and challenging for both the victim and their family. For such reasons, it’s crucial you are compensated for your injuries so you can get the medical assistance you need to continue your recovery.

How to Get Compensation for Recovery?

Traumatic brain injury treatments are long, complex, and expensive. For such reasons, it is vital that you seek compensation for your injuries if you or your loved one were injured because of another person’s negligent behavior.
