If you have suffered psychological shock related to a Wisconsin motorcycyle crash, or know someone who is struggling with the mental aftereffects of a traumatic Madison bike wreck, you should seek help immediately. The following information may be helpful for those considering seeking professional help to combat after sustaining motorcycle accident shock:

  • There are two main causes of psychological shock, both of which could be experienced due to a Wisconsin motorcycle accident. One cause of shock is hearing emotional news such as the death of a friend or family member. The other cause of shock is being involved in a traumatic event such as a motorcycle accident.
  • Psychological shock can consume your life if left untreated, and you may begin to fixate or obsess about the event, making it difficult to maintain daily relationships and duties. 
  • It is possible to have a delayed presentation of shock, or “delayed shock.” These symptoms may come to light anywhere between hours or even sometimes years following the traumatic event.
  • If the symptoms of shock are left untreated and allowed to continue and the shock victim finds it difficult to return to normal life, there is a risk that they may have developed post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). PTSD is more difficult to treat, and can make a variety of daily activities seem difficult or impossible.
