In Wisconsin, there are plenty of big trucks on the road. When they share road space with smaller personal passenger vehicles like yours, there can be big consequences for crashes. Today, we at Peterson Berk & Cross will take a look at the possibility of brain injury post-crash and how it may affect you.
Brain injuries can easily happen after a crash, especially when a big vehicle like a truck is involved. The speed and size can make any impact a hefty one, especially if your car is much smaller than their truck. Brain injuries can be caused by many things. One example is whiplash, an injury in which your brain could hit the inside of your skull if the force is intense enough. Traumatic damage can also be done if you hit your head on the steering wheel. If you were not wearing a seat belt, you may even hit the windshield.
It is not an easy or short process to recover from a brain injury. Depending on severity, you could be recovering for months or even years. You may experience memory problems and behavioral or emotional changes. You could have persistent issues with concentration and short-term memory for years to come. In some cases, the damage may even be permanent.
