Parietal Lobe Injury
The parietal lobes of the brain are divided into two regions that have different functions. The first region controls sensation and perception. The second region controls sensory input and the visual system of the brain. Injuries to these areas of the brain in the parietal lobes can often result in conditions where the victim experiences difficulty perceiving objects normally, including body image and spatial relations.
These parietal lobe injuries can have significant short-term and long-term consequences for victims and their families. At the San Mateo law firm of Galine, Frye, Fitting & Frangos, our personal injury lawyers provide experienced representation to those who have suffered traumatic brain injuries in car accidents, workplace accidents and other accidents in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Damage to the left and right parietal lobes can result in significant mental difficulties, including:
- Difficulty with writing and mathematics
- Language disorders
- Right-left confusion
- Neglect for a part of the body, which can impair self-care skills
- Difficulty in making things and drawing ability
- Inability to voluntarily control gaze
- Loss of verbal and non-verbal memory
- Changes in personality
With mild to moderate trauma, these difficulties may be temporary and can improve over time. In the worst cases, however, these problems can be long-lasting or permanent, requiring a lifetime of medical care and therapy. This care is expensive and families deserve to be compensated for their losses.Learn More Information About Parietal Lobe Injuries
