Sometimes a serious injury to the head can cause organic brain damage which can be permanent.
Because of the complex nature of a brain injury the effects may impact on speech, balance or other bodily functions. Depending on which part of the brain affected, it could lead to some form of emotional trauma and psychological damage. There is a complex interplay between concussion and organic brain injury and depression. Diagnosis can be difficult and will involve speaking to family members and people close to the victim to understand in detail how the person has been affected.
On an emotional level, an injury to the brain can create an inability to cope with life, work and relationships. It can also cause severe pain to the victim, or indeed cause a lack of sensation or control of bodily functions.
