Traumatic Brain Injuries and Dysarthria

When a person sustains a traumatic brain injury (TBI), he or she may develop a serious speech disorder known as dysarthria. Dysarthria is caused by damage to the nerves and areas of the brain responsible for controlling the speech organs, and as such, it can dramatically alter the way a person speaks. This can have a profound impact on an individual’s confidence and ability to do his or her job, depending on the person’s profession.

Even if a person does not develop dysarthria following a brain injury, victims of TBIs can still experience a variety of serious physical, emotional, and even financial damages. However, when these injuries are caused by the negligent actions of someone else, the lawyers of Hull & Zimmerman, P.C., can help Denver residents fight for the full financial compensation they deserve for their pain and suffering.

Signs of Dysarthria

In general, dysarthria can interfere with a person’s ability to control the following qualities of speech:

  • Volume
  • Tone
  • Pitch and range
  • Strength or breathiness
  • Timing and speed

People suffering from dysarthria may undergo speech therapy to improve their level of control over their speech patterns, restoring their confidence and ability to talk the way they used to. However, given the cost and time involved with this kind of therapy, the price of this treatment may be prohibitive for some injured individuals.
