Expressive Aphasia from Brain Damage
A person who has suffered serious brain damage may lose some of their language abilities. This occurs when a traumatic injury or health condition leads to tissue death in the language-processing areas of the brain. In some situations, this may occur in areas where the brain is responsible for producing language. This can result in a condition known as expressive aphasia.
If you have suffered a brain injury resulting in expressive aphasia, and someone else is to blame, we can help you to pursue the financial compensation that you are due.

Symptoms of Expressive Aphasia
Expressive aphasia is a language disorder that causes the loss of language production abilities. As a result, a person may not be able to put together a fluent sentence. This can make communication strained and difficult. However, a person may be able to recover some of their language abilities through treatment, therapy, and practice.
- Loss of vocabulary
- Inability to piece together a full sentence
- Loss of control over grammar and word endings
- Stress in speech can be lost
- Writing can be compromised
Treatment often consists of considerable language therapy in which a person may be expected to repeat phrases. Over time, this repetition may eventually help repair language loss. However, some instances of brain damage may prove too severe to rehabilitate.
If you have sustained serious brain damage because of another person's negligence, we may be able to help. To learn more about your legal rights and options when pursuing compensation, contact the Wausau brain injury attorneys of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. at 800-242-2874 today.
