Brain Hemorrhage

Denver brain injury attorneyThe brain is well-protected within the skull, but it is still susceptible to injury, especially during accidents. The brain may move within the skull when the head sustains sudden trauma, with the potential for several different types of injury. One of the most dangerous types of injury that may occur is brain hemorrhage.

What Is A Brain Hemorrhage?

A brain hemorrhage is bleeding inside the brain or on its surface. A broken blood vessel inside the skull causes blood to pool and as a result places pressure on the brain, resulting in damage. Brain hemorrhages can be caused by sudden traumatic injury, and are always an emergency situation. Effects of brain hemorrhages can present immediately, or they may take hours or even days, depending on the amount of blood involved. Any head injury is a potential emergency and you should seek medical assistance immediately. You should also speak with a Denver brain injury attorney to discuss your options.

What Are The Effects Of A Brain Hemorrhage?

It is not uncommon for severe brain damage or death to result from brain hemorrhages. Even in patients for whom the results are less severe, however, a brain hemorrhage is extremely serious. The pooling of blood within the brain or on the surface of the brain can cause injury to the various lobes of the brain. Also, when a hemorrhage occurs but symptoms do not appear immediately, that does not make it less dangerous. Possible symptoms of brain hemorrhage may include:

  • Severe Headaches
  • Nausea and Vomiting
  • Dizziness
  • Numbness in Extremities
  • Partial Paralysis
  • Blackouts

If you or a member of your family are experiencing these symptoms, particularly following any accident that involved a bump on the head, seek medical care immediately. A brain hemorrhage may cause mild symptoms for awhile, only to kill the person suddenly several days later.

What Should I Do?

If you or a family member have suffered a brain hemorrhage after an accident, please be sure that you have seen a doctor and ensured your health and safety. Once you are safe, consult with a Denver brain injury attorney. There are a number of things a brain injury lawyer can do for you: negotiate with insurance companies on your behalf to ensure that you receive the best possible medical care, help you file disability or worker’s compensation claims, assess negligence and take legal action if appropriate.
