What is a Cognitive Disorder?

Cognitive disorders and deficits are a form of mental condition that can arise after a traumatic brain injury. Cognitive deficits affect the subject’s ability to remember things and take decisions. There is a measurable decline in the subject’s cognitive skills. Symptoms of cognitive disorders include sleeplessness, lethargy, agitation, hallucinations, and poor motor skills. Cognitive disorders can be characterized by issues such as amnesia, delirium, anxiety disorders, and obsessive-compulsive disorders.

The condition makes it difficult for subjects to operate at the workplace. You can miss deadlines and fail to service clients appropriately. Promotions and growth opportunities become harder to come by. For those who work in high-risk environments, this condition can lead to mishaps and accidents at the workplace. You may be considered a liability for others; it may lead to job termination or demotion.

Cognitive impairments affect your relationships and quality of life. The treatment for cognitive disorders and deficits depend upon the cause – TBI, depression, illness, etc. Medicine and therapy are treatment options. If you suffer from such a condition, then you may be able to seek compensation.
