What Should You Do After A Car Accident?

Jacksonville Brain Hemorrhaging Lawyer

Brain hemorrhaging, also known as intracereberal hemorrhaging, or ICH, is a very serious condition requiring immediate medical attention. Sometimes it can be caused by health problems such as high blood pressure or an aneurysm (blood clot). However, it is most commonly caused by trauma to the skull or brain.

If you have sustained a brain injury that led to hemorrhage, you may have grounds to file suit against those responsible for your injury. Contact Jacksonville brain injury lawyer Don Guthrie at 904-296-1088 today.

Symptoms of ICH

The outcome of brain hemorrhaging can be devastating. The symptoms often develop suddenly and may progress rapidly, or come and go over time. The specific symptoms will vary depending on the location and severity of the injury, but possible outcomes include:

  • Headache
  • Becoming apathetic, sleepy or lethargic
  • Changes in vision, including uncontrollable eye movement
  • Poor coordination or muscle weakness
  • Decreased sensation or paralysis
  • Speech difficulties
  • Seizures

Other complications may occur along with the hemorrhage. For example, the patient may have a stroke, suffer permanent brain damage, or experience negative side effects from necessary drugs. Even without complications and with medical treatment, an ICH patient can die suddenly.

Causes of ICH

At the offices of Jacksonville traumatic brain injury lawyer Don Guthrie, we know that all too many serious injuries are caused by reckless or negligent behavior. Some of the most common incidents leading to brain hemorrhaging include:

  • Car accidents
  • Gunshot wounds
  • Slips and falls

Defective products may also play a role, such as malfunctioning helmets, seatbelts, car brakes, and other safety equipment.
