Hi,

Consult a neurologist and get evaluated.

An MRI scan is required to look for a possible intracranial cause. Sometimes there is tissue damage to speech areas in the brain following the trauma and result in aphasia.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Shinas Hussain,
