The brain is a very delicate and complex part of the body. Sustaining a blow to the head—like those many riders have experienced during a Milwaukee motorcycle accident—can cause damage to the brain. Serious brain injuries are called a traumatic brain injury, or TBI. Due to the nature of motorcycle accidents, traumatic brain injuries are very common.
After a motorcycle accident victim has sustained a brain injury, he may experience a wide spectrum of associated symptoms. Many brain injury victims find they have increased difficulty dealing with social relationships. Social settings such as work, home, school, or parties may now be challenging to navigate.
Some of the common social difficulties that a Wisconsin motorcycle accident victim suffering from a TBI may experience are:
- Interpersonal communication skills. Having problems with interpersonal communication skills can affect the ability to listen to others or understand how to take turns in a conversation. It may also affect eye contact, personal space when interacting, body language, and facial expressions.
- Understanding nuances. Suffering from a TBI affects the ability to understand nuances in a social relationship. The person may not be able to pick up on social cues regarding inappropriate behaviors.
- Sensitivity. Individuals who have sustained a TBI may become less sensitive to social norms and have less sensitivity to other people’s feelings. This may cause them to use inappropriate language or act in a socially unaccepted manner.
