Brain Hemorrhages

Colorado Personal Injury Lawyer

A brain hemorrhage, otherwise known as an intracranial bleed, is one of the most severe and life threatening injuries an individual can face. After a traumatic event, such as an automobile accident or motorcycle accident, the brain can sustain serious injury. Over the next several hours, swelling and inflammation can cause significant damage to the brain and the surrounding tissue and cells. When one of the blood vessels ruptures, this blood can increase the damage to the brain causing paralysis, strokes and even death. Unfortunately, the majority of brain hemorrhages occur without warning. After a car accident, victims may not feel as if they have been injured severely and may initially seem fine. Over the next several hours or days, the symptoms of a brain hemorrhage may begin to become apparent, or they may just happen suddenly. When a hemorrhage does occur, the victim may suddenly find themselves unable to walk, talk or even breathe. When this occurs, every minute counts and emergency medical treatment means the difference between life and death.

Symptoms of a brain hemorrhage

  • Paralysis or partial paralysis
  • Numbness or tingling in extremities
  • Sudden or severe headaches
  • Extreme nausea and vomiting
  • Stroke like symptoms
  • Loss of consciousness
While brain hemorrhages are life threatening, they can be treated. After a traumatic accident, it is important to seek medical attention immediately, even if you believe your injuries are not severe. A CT scan or MRI is the only way to accurately diagnose a brain hemorrhage and prevent irreparable brain damage from occurring. If you or someone you love is injured in an accident and sustained a head injury, it is important to know  that you are not alone. A Colorado brain injury attorney may be able to help obtain the compensation you deserve after a devastating brain injury. Brain hemorrhages can cost millions of dollars in medical expenses, rehabilitation and lost wages that can easily put victims and their families in serious financial crisis. A Colorado brain injury attorney will be able to help you obtain the compensation you deserve—so you can focus on your recovery, not your bills.
