Expressive Aphasia

When someone suffers a serious brain injury either from a stroke or a blunt force there could be many serious repercussions. The brain is responsible for controlling many different functions, including movement, feeling, and also the ability to communicate. Brain injuries may compromise one’s ability to not only understand someone else’s speech, but it may also lead to difficulty forming sentences. One such condition is known as expressive aphasia.

Although one can suffer from expressive aphasia for a number of reasons out of anyone’s control, when the condition is caused by someone else’s negligent actions, it may be appropriate to file a civil lawsuit seeking financial compensation.

Expressive Aphasia Symptoms

Losing the ability to communicate can be extremely difficult to deal with, especially if you used to work in a field that required you to speak publicly. Expressive aphasia can also be problematic in your personal relationships. Some common symptoms of expressive aphasia include:

  • Fragmented speech
  • Trouble understanding and comprehending sentences or vocabulary
  • Inability to use or understand grammar

If your expressive aphasia is too severe, it may require extensive medical attention or speech therapy, and even then the gains made may be slow and difficult. You should not have to bear the burden of these expenses when your injury is attributable to the actions of another party.
