Failure to Diagnose Bleeding Brain Injuries
The time window to properly treat bleeding brain injuries can be limited to a matter of hours. It is critical that there is no delay in diagnosis and treatment. Unfortunately, these are complex injuries that are frequently misdiagnosed. When the misdiagnosis is the result of a doctor or other medical professional failing to thoroughly review the symptoms and conduct the proper tests, the negligent party should be held accountable. The victim should receive compensation. At the Law Offices of Raymond J. Slomski, P.C., in Phoenix, Arizona, we will use our decades of experience to make certain that happens.
The smallest amount of blood entering the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) can cause dramatic problems. Blood may prevent the CSF from draining properly, leading to hydrocephalus or similar conditions. For this reason, if an aneurysm results in a bleeding brain injury, referred to as a subarachnoid hemorrhage, it requires immediate treatment. Subarachnoid hemorrhages are often described as terrible headaches, but they cannot be treated like mere headaches. The bleeding brain injury needs to be repaired and monitored to prevent future bleeds.
Strokes and Bleeding Brain Injuries
There are two types of strokes. One of them involves a bleeding brain injury. The brain tears and starts bleeding. The classic stroke symptoms appear: slurred speech and comprehension, loss of balance or coordination, sudden dizziness, trouble seeing in one or both eyes, and more. Like the subarachnoid hemorrhage, the bleeding brain injury and stroke needs to be repaired immediately to prevent damage that impacts the entire body.
