As a resident of Texas who has recently gotten into a severe car crash, you are likely dealing with numerous injuries and health complications in the aftermath. If you suffered from any sort of injury to the head or brain, then it is possible you will also be dealing with memory loss as well.
One of the most common types of catastrophic injuries people face after a severe crash are traumatic brain injuries, also known as TBIs. Memory trouble is common among sufferers of TBIs. These troubles can come in different forms. For example, some people experience short-term memory loss that can range in severity from mildly annoying to crippling and life-altering. The duration of short-term memory loss depends on how severe the initial brain injury was and how well the victim takes to therapy.
In some instances, short-term memory loss may become a permanent part of the victim’s life. They will need to adjust their habits and way of living to accommodate for what is essentially a disability. Long-term memory loss is a little less common, but still possible. Sufferers of long-term memory loss may have trouble recalling things like names, places, basic information and other pieces of information they should be well-acquainted with. Typically, severe short-term memory loss is the easiest to recover from.
