What Is a Brain Bleed?
A brain bleed, or brain hemorrhage, is when bleeding occurs either within the brain tissue or between the brain tissue and the skull. Unfortunately, many brain bleeds happen in the blink of an eye, seemingly without warning.
Types of Brain Hemorrhage
There are many different types of brain bleeds, or hemorrhage.Medical professionals classifythem based on location:
- Epidural bleed or hemorrhage, which occurs between the skull and the outermost membrane of the brain, or dura mater;
- Subdural bleed or hemorrhage, which occurs between the dura mater and the brain’s middle membrane, or arachnoid membrane;
- Subarachnoid bleed or hemorrhage, which occurs between the arachnoid membrane and the innermost membrane, or pia mater;
- Intracerebral hemorrhage, which, also referred to as a cerebral hemorrhage or hemorrhagic stroke, occurs anywhere within the brain tissue; and
- Intraventricular hemorrhage, which occurs in the brain’s ventricles, cavities, or where cerebrospinal fluid (csf) is produced.
It may seem irrelevant to know the exact medical term for your own or your loved one’s brain bleed, but it can make a huge difference for your case. In our experience, even if the defense (the party being sued) is not a medical professional, they will likely have a medical expert testify for them. If your attorney does not know these terms, their lack of knowledge may end up costing you your case. You need an attorney who understands medical jargon, who can dynamically respond to medical experts in their own language.
Proving Negligence in a Brain Hemorrhage Case
Often, brain hemorrhages are unpreventable; other times, they are a direct result of medical negligence. Examples of the latter would be if a medical professional failed to identify and address a brain bleed in a timely manner or failed to recognize its warning signs and prevent it. It is also common for medical professionals to commit a medical error, such as during surgery, and cause a brain bleed. In any of these cases, the negligent medical professional may be held legally and financially accountable.
To prove negligence in a brain hemorrhage case, you will need to prove that:
- The medical professional owed you a standard of care, meaning there was an established doctor-patient relationship;
- The medical professional was negligent and violated that standard, such as by failing to promptly diagnose or treat a brain bleed;
- The negligence resulted in injury to the patient, meaning that a preventable brain bleed occurred; and
- The injury caused the patient to incur damages, such as medical bills, pain and suffering, and more.
It can be difficult to prove the above elements without having an in-depth understanding of neurology and medical malpractice law. Negligent health care providers and their attorneys take advantage of this to silence plaintiffs (those injured) and evade accountability. Our brain hemorrhage attorneys at Brown & Barron, LLC will not let them get away with this—having worked on these cases for years, we have the knowledge needed to fight back.
