Truck accident brain injuries typically happen in similar ways. A trucker, trucking company, or another party was negligent, and that negligence led to a collision between the truck and your car. The force of that collision caused your brain to crash against your skull, your head to hit something, or something to puncture your skull and brain, and you suffered a traumatic brain injury as a result.
A brain injury can cause financial and emotional stress. An experienced truck accident attorney can help you understand your options for protecting your fair recovery. However, your time to take action is limited by the state statute of limitations. Accordingly, it is important to take action quickly by learning more about your recovery.
Living With a Brain Injury Following A Truck Accident
Your brain injury is unique. Nobody else is suffering exactly the same injury that you are suffering. The specific consequences of your brain injury depend on the force of your accident, how your head was injured, what part of the brain was affected, and other factors. A brain injury can impact many different areas of your life including, but not limited to your:
- Senses (including touch, vision, and hearing).
- Gross motor function (including balance, motor planning, and motor activity).
- Ability to concentrate.
As you recover, you may be under significant restriction. You may be unable to use technology, you may be unable to read, you may be unable to drive, and you may be unable to be around loud noises, for example. This can make work impossible. In some cases, your brain may not heal completely and the consequences of your injury may stay with you for the rest of your life.
