There are few occurrences more frightening than the realization that lifelong skills have been lost due to injury in an accident. Whether due to trauma or damage from a health emergency such as a stroke, the possibility of losing cognitive functions is present any time the brain is damaged. For some, the neurological damage may impair their motor skills, making it difficult to control their limbs or the muscles in their face. For others, it may mean the loss of language skills. In the case of dysgraphia, injured individuals may lose the ability to write.

If you have been injured due to the negligence of another party, you deserve justice. For a free consultation with a knowledgeable attorney, contact the Charleston personal injury lawyers of the Steinberg Law Firm today by calling 843-720-2800.


It is somewhat difficult to pin down the exact nature of dysgraphia, as the disorder consists of multiple types of more specific disorders. For some victims, dysgraphia does not affect language skills, but wholly affects fine motor skills. Without the ability to manipulate a pen or pencil, handwriting is an extremely difficult or impossible task.

The following are some of the major symptoms of dysgraphia:

  • Loss of fine motor movement
  • Inability to spell words properly
  • Illegible handwriting
  • Pain when trying to write
  • Writing as a slow, laborious process

In addition to these problems, an injured person may be able to copy letters with relative ease, even though spontaneous writing is very difficult. This only occurs with certain types of dysgraphia, and illustrates that the injury has affected the person’s language skills more so than his or her fine motor movements.
