Any injury to the brain is serious. Traumatic brain injury (TBI), which can be caused by impact, penetration or other forces acting on the brain, often has devastating or even fatal consequences. The Gilleon Law Firm, APC understands these complicated injuries — and the necessity of compensation to help victims and their families deal with the lingering aftermath.
In San Diego, our brain injury lawyers possess the legal skills, resources and physiological knowledge to effectively and successfully handle brain stem injuries, brain hemorrhage and brain hematomas, among other brain injuries.
When you’ve suffered a catastrophic injury, access to medical resources, legal and medical information, and compassionate support are essential. Our firm provides comprehensive representation and peace of mind to our clients who are victims of traumatic brain injury.
Understanding any injury is important to dealing with its outcome. Consider these points about hematoma with a brain injury:
A hematoma is a pooling of blood on the surface of the brain usually caused by damage to blood vessels in the dura mater, the outermost covering of the brain. Pooling blood compresses brain tissue, which can cause irreversible brain damage.
There are three types of subdural (within the dura) hematomas: acute, subacute and chronic. Generally diagnosed by the timing of symptoms, acute hematoma occurs immediately after an accident, subacute bleeding appears days or weeks after an accident, and chronic hematoma, occurring most often in the elderly, may be of unknown origin.
The most common type of intracranial hematoma, acute subdural hematoma, is often associated with coma, devastating brain injury and death in approximately 60 percent of those injured.
Proving negligence with a brain injury such as a brain hematoma is essential for obtaining appropriate compensation from responsible parties. With any form of brain injury, involving our firm at the outset gives you immediate access to information and important resources. It also builds a strong foundation for a successful legal action.
