How Traumatic Brain Injuries Impair Executive Functioning

How Traumatic Brain Injuries Impair Executive Functioning

Each March, the nation recognizes National Brain Injury Awareness Month. Traumatic brain injuries are a devastating injury that affects an estimated 2.4 million people each year in the United States. Many of these injuries are the result of a motor vehicle accident. When the accident involves a large commercial truck, the risk of a brain injury is especially high. Unfortunately, brain injuries can have numerous effects on a victim, including impairing executive functioning.

12 Ways a Brain Injury Can Impact Executive Functioning

Executive functioning is a term used to describe the management, regulation, and control of the cognitive processes. These processes help a person manage life tasks of all types. When a victim of a traumatic brain injury suffers from impaired executive functioning, he or she may have difficulty with any of the following:

  • Analyzing
  • Problem-solving
  • Prioritizing
  • Troubleshooting
  • Planning
  • Sequencing
  • Evaluating
  • Reasoning
  • Organizing
  • Directing
  • Monitoring
  • Multi-tasking

When executive functioning is impaired, victims may face an uphill battle when it comes to returning to daily life. Victims may face expensive long-term medical and rehabilitation bills. In addition, victims may be unable to return to work and earn an income for a substantial amount of time. It is therefore crucial that victims and their families take the proper steps in order to protect a victim’s rights to compensation after a crash.
