Understanding Hematoma Claims
Like other types of brain injury, a hematoma can be either subtle and non-life-threatening or potentially deadly-- depending primarily on its location and severity. When an accident victim has suffered any type of head trauma, proper monitoring and the need to perform appropriate tests, such as CT scans or brain MRIs is very important.
The most serious types of hematoma are most commonly caused by a blow to the head or the sudden start-and-stop of a violent head motion:
- Subdural hematoma—when blood collects on the surface of the brain and, in severe or acute cases, can rapidly fill the cavity and permanently damage brain tissue
- Intracranial hematoma—caused by the rupture of a blood vessel and causing the collection of blood in the skull cavity, a life-threatening condition that often requires surgical intervention
- Injuries near other areas of the brain, such as epidural and intracerebral hematomas
Some indicators of possible hematoma that should be recognized and taken seriously by medical professionals are:
- Severe or persistent headaches
- Confusion or sudden mood shifts
- Loss of consciousness
