Why Do You Need a Lawyer?

The effects that a hematoma could have on your life are devastating and often permanent. These injuries generally require extensive medical treatment and long-term rehabilitation and therapy. You know that the accident wasn’t your fault, and you know that you cannot pay for medical bills, but you may not know what you can do to get the compensation you deserve.

You can receive compensation for medical bills, property damage, lost wages, rehabilitation, and sometimes emotional distress if you pursue a personal injury claim.

What is a Hematoma?

A hematoma is bleeding in or around the brain. They are generally caused by head trauma. There are two different types of hematomas, classified by the location of the bleeding within the skull:

  • Epidural hematomas: Bleeding between the skull and the outer layer of the brain’s protective cover usually caused by a rupture in high-pressure arteries. This creates a pocket of blood that increases pressure in the skull.
  • Subdural hematomas: Bleeding between the outer layer of the brain’s protective cover and the next protective layer. Subdural hematomas are divided into three subtypes that include acute, subacute, or chronic. This just depends on how soon after the injury symptoms start to appear, but all of them can have debilitating effects on the victim.

Symptoms of hematomas include:

  • Loss of consciousness
  • Changes in behavior
  • Dizziness
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Weakness in parts of the body
  • Headache
  • Enlarged pupil in one eye

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with a hematoma after you have been a victim of an accident, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. If you recognize these symptoms in yourself or in someone you love that has been a victim of an accident, seek medical assistance immediately. Once you or your loved one is stabilized, contact Sampson Law Firm to get the compensation you need for your injuries.
