What Is a Brain Hemorrhage?
Per Cleveland Clinic, a brain hemorrhage (also known as a “brain bleed”) is a form of stroke caused by a burst brain artery that results in localized bleeding. This condition is considered a medical emergency, and, if suspected, 911 should be called immediately.
A brain hemorrhage can reduce how much oxygen is getting to the brain. If left unaddressed, one risks severe health problems and even death.
There Are Multiple Types of Brain Hemorrhages
There are several types of hemorrhages, depending on the bleed’s location:
- Intracerebral hemorrhage, which is bleeding that occurs inside the brain
- Subarachnoid hemorrhage, which is bleeding that occurs between the brain and its outer membranes
- Subdural hemorrhage, which is bleeding that occurs below the inner layer of the dura mater and above the brain
- Epidural hemorrhage, or when a bleed develops between the brain and skull
All forms of brain hemorrhage come with a severe risk to one’s health, and emergency medical attention is always necessary.
Brain Hemorrhages Have Many Different Causes
Brain hemorrhages (along with other traumatic brain injuries) can arise from:
- Motor vehicle crashes
- Contact sports
- Slip and falls
- Falling objects
- Construction site accidents
- Workplace accidents
- Medical malpractice
- Nursing home abuse and neglect
Even if you don’t see the cause of your or your loved one’s brain hemorrhage here, you may have legal options in seeking financial recovery.
