Expressive Aphasia

The brain is responsible for many functions, including communication, movement, sensation, and more. If a person suffers from brain damage such as head trauma or stroke, they may lose some of these functions, like the ability to form understandable language. This disorder is known as Broca’s aphasia, or expressive aphasia.

Although expressive aphasia can result from uncontrollable events such as stroke, another main cause of this disorder is head trauma. If you or a loved one now has Broca’s aphasia due to the negligence of another, please contact the Rhinelander personal injury attorneys of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. today at 800-242-2874 to discuss your injury claim in detail with an experienced legal representative.

The Signs of Expressive Aphasia

There are many different kinds of communication disorders organized under the general name of aphasia. More specifically, these disorders can affect various parts of language, mainly inhibiting either speech or listening skills. Expressive aphasia mostly damages or destroys the ability to create fluent spoken language, although it can affect written language as well. As a result, a person may suffer from the following symptoms:

  • Broken speech
  • Difficulty using grammatically correct words or word endings
  • Restricted vocabulary
  • Difficulty understanding complex sentences

Depending on the severity of the injury, a person suffering from expressive aphasia may be able to rehabilitate some of their language skills. Cognitive therapy can offer positive results for some patients, but it often comes at a significant price.
