What are some of the social problems that can be expected following a brain injury in Riverside?

The brain is a complex part of the body that can be very delicate. Sustaining a heavy blow to the head can cause damage. Many people suffer a traumatic brain injury (TBI) after being involved in accidents such as car accidents, slip and fall accidents, or defective products. In fact, there are over one million hand and brain injuries sustained by Americans every year.

A victim of a brain injury in riverside may experience many symptoms associated with it.  One of the issues that many brain injury victims suffer from is issues with their social relationships. Their newly developed social problems can create problems for the victim at work, home, school or other social settings.

Some of the difficulties may include:

  • 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.
