Brain Haemorrhage Claims

A brain haemorrhage claim can be made on the basis of a misdiagnosis, delayed treatment or error during a surgical procedure.

These incidents can have a significant impact on the victim’s outlook and that of their family. It can add time to their recovery or leave them with injuries and health issues that could have otherwise been avoided. If you feel that this has happened to you our medical negligence solicitors can help you to make a brain haemorrhage claim.

What is a Brain Haemorrhage?

A brain haemorrhage, also known as a cerebral haemorrhage, is a type of stroke caused by a burst artery in the brain that also causes localised bleeding in the surrounding tissues.

It is this bleeding that kills the brain cells and results in subsequent brain damage.

During a brain haemorrhage the irritation to the brain tissues prompts swelling. The pooled blood also collects into a mass called a haematoma and collectively the two incidences increase pressure on the area. Once vital blood flow is reduced, the brain cells will begin to die.

There are several risk factors and causes of brain haemorrhages that range from head trauma, caused by an injury, chronic high blood pressure that remains untreated, and a ruptured aneurysm.

Common symptoms of Brain Haemorrhages

The symptoms of a brain haemorrhage are unpredictable as they vary depending on the location and severity of the bleeding, as well as how much of the tissues are affected. Symptoms may develop suddenly or over time, become worse gradually or suddenly appear.

Whichever combination of symptoms a patient develops, they are life-threatening and require urgent medical attention to prevent them from causing long-term complications.

Some of the symptoms include:

  • A sudden, severe headache
  • A sudden seizure(s)
  • Weakness in limbs/ tingling and numbness
  • Loss of fine motor skills
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Vision changes
  • Decreased alertness/ lethargy

How to make a Brain Haemorrhage Claim

Complications from a brain haemorrhage can be life-changing for the victim, and at its worst, lead to the loss of life.

For a victim to suffer at the hands of a trusted professional, it can take a considerably long time to accept and adapt to whatever injury they have suffered, as well as their loved ones.
