Agnosia and Brain Injury

Agnosia and Brain Injury

When a person sustains an injury to their brain, they may develop a variety of serious complications. A particularly destructive condition known as agnosia can result from brain injuries. Agnosia is a term used to describe a wide variety of conditions that interfere with a person’s ability to interact with the world around them in some way. The different types of this condition often affect a very limited scope of sensory perception or abstract thinking, however.

For more information regarding your legal options if you or someone you love has been afflicted by agnosia due to the negligence of another party, contact the Charleston personal injury lawyers of the Steinberg Law Firm at 843-720-2800 today.


Different areas of the brain are responsible for handling distinctly separate mental processes. If an injury damages or destroys a particular structure, the injured individual can lose the function of that structure. As a result, they can lose basic abilities that have developed through the person’s lifetime. These losses can include the following:

  • Inability to identify or understand the implications of objects seen
  • Inability to comprehend sounds heard
  • Inability to distinguish music from random noise
  • Inability to distinguish a mirror image from a real object
  • Inability to comprehend colors
  • Inability to connect a person with their face
  • Inability to connect a person with their voice

When available, treatment can prove expensive and time-consuming. In some cases, the damage to the brain may make these complications a permanent condition.
