The parietal lobe sits above the temporal lobe at the top of the skull and is probably the least understood of all the lobes. When the parietal lobe is injured after a traumatic brain injury or concussion, the effects can be devastating because this section of the brain is primarily responsible for sensory assimilation and visual-spatial processing. Loss of body awareness, inability to tell left from right and loss of reading skills are just a few of the challenges victims may face throughout their lives.

If you or someone you love has experienced a parietal lobe injury, it is important to seek medical help immediately. As with all brain injuries, prompt medical treatment is the most important key to preventing lifelong disabilities from occurring. Unfortunately, like most traumatic brain injuries, symptoms often go unnoticed for days and even weeks. As the brain is deprived of oxygen in the parietal lobe, symptoms gradually worsen until family members usually convince the victim to seek help. By then, permanent brain damage may be irreversible.

Symptoms of a Parietal Lobe Brain Injury:

  • Anomia ( the inability to remember the name of an object)
  • Agraphia ( the inability to remember words for writing)
  • Alexia ( difficulty reading words)
  • Difficulty drawing or writing
  • Problems with eye and hand coordination
  • Inability to tell the left from the right
  • Dyscalculia( inability to do math)
  • Apraxia (lack of body awareness)
  • Inability to determine touch or pressure correctly
  • Fine sensation difficulties ( inability to judge weight, size or shape)
  • Difficulty identifying sensation (hot, cold etc)
  • Confusion or Sudden Loss of functioning

Symptoms of a parietal lobe brain injury vary greatly depending on where the parietal lobe was injured. Injuries can be mild or severe, affect only one hemisphere or even just a small part of the parietal lobe. Because of this, parietal lobe brain injuries are often difficult to diagnose and can often be overlooked, especially after a severe automobile accident or traumatic fall.

If you or someone you love has suffered from a parietal lobe brain injury it is important to contact a qualified brain injury attorney immediately to handle your case. Your brain injury attorney may need to negotiate with insurance companies and medical insurances to ensure that all of your recovery needs are taken care of. In addition, your brain injury attorney may feel it is in your best interest to file a lawsuit against the parties responsible for your brain injury.

Recovering from a brain injury can take years and affect your ability to maintain a job, provide for your family and enjoy your life fully. During this time, medical expenses and bills can quickly exhaust even the best insurance coverages and many families suddenly find themselves in severe financial difficulty. If you have suffered from a traumatic brain injury, contact a brain injury attorney today.
