Despite the enhancements in medical technology as well as protocols, mistakes still happen. Medical malpractice can be claimed. Often patients are given the wrong treatment or perhaps incorrectly diagnosed. Improper diagnosis leads to the wrong treatment being given. This can often make matters worse or lead to death. One medical problem that often is involved in cases of medical negligence is brain hemorrhages.
Brain hemorrhages are very serious conditions. With these, the blood vessels rupture or even tear. As a result, blood is released into the brain. Patients with blood on the brain will usually feel head pressure or a severe headache. Medical treatment will often be sought when the severity of the headache is severe. Some people can even faint or become unconscious when they are suffering from a brain hemorrhage. Comas can be one severe result of such hemorrhages. In many cases, the pain will subside. The doctor will believe the problem has been eliminated and will not proceed with tests or treatment to determine the cause for the problem. This is quite dangerous as in many situation detection of the problem could lead to a medical procedure that could help the situation. However, some patients unfortunately die.
There are two different kinds of brain hemorrhages that patients can experience. These would include subdural hemorrhages. This type occurs over a long period of time. The development of the hemorrhage is precipitated often by trauma. This happens quite often to the elderly. The second type of brain hemorrhage involves an extradural hemorrhage. These also occur from head injuries such as those in sports. If a patient that how a brain hemorrhage feels like they were not given proper medical care that resulted in further injury, they may be entitled to compensation.
