The severe risk of a brain bleed 

On Behalf of | Sep 19, 2022 | Brain Injuries

If you suffer a traumatic brain injury (TBI), one thing to keep in mind is that you could have bleeding in or around your brain. For example, when there is bleeding between the skull and the brain tissue, it is known as a subdural hematoma. This means that there is internal bleeding but that it is still putting pressure on the neural cells within the brain.

Bleeding itself is very dangerous, but the real threat here comes from that pressure. If it grows to be too great, the brain injury can actually become worse than it was at the time of the incident. In some cases, pressure can be so severe that brain cells are actually killed as a result. Since neural cells usually lack the ability to replicate, this means you could have permanent ramifications.

Seeking medical attention

The big thing to take away from this is that you want to seek medical attention as soon as you get injured. Maybe you were involved in a car accident and you hit your head on the window. Perhaps you slipped and fell off of a ladder, striking your head on the ground. Perhaps you were cycling when a driver ran you off the road and into a tree. 

No matter how the accident happened, if you have suffered any level of brain injury, you should have it addressed by medical professionals so that you can ensure that continued bleeding is not occurring.

Of course, one of the biggest reasons that people fail to get the medical care that they need is because they’re worried that it will be expensive. This is why it’s also wise to learn about the legal options you have if someone else was responsible for your injuries.
