Hematoma Attorneys

Most often caused by traumatic injury to the head, a hematoma of the brain is a very serious health concern that can leave those injured with permanent brain damage. A hematoma develops when the blood vessels around the brain burst or are cut open, causing blood to leak out of the vascular system. As this blood pools, it pushes the brain against the skull due to increased brain pressure. Eventually, the injured person’s brain either is damaged due to physical injury inside the skull or because of a prolonged loss of blood supply.

If your brain injury was caused by the negligence of another person or third-party, you may be able to seek financial compensation. Contact the Denver hematoma attorneys of Hull & Zimmerman, P.C., at (303) 423-1770 to learn more about your rights and options.

Hematoma Symptoms

Perhaps one of the most troubling parts of a hematoma is the lack of obvious symptoms. There are few signs following an instance of trauma that indicate whether a person is suffering from a severe injury or not. Instead, there are a few indicators that a person should reach out for medical assistance immediately. These are some of those signs:

  • Headache
  • Unusual reactions to light from pupils
  • Lucid interval, in which someone briefly wakes from a coma
  • Dizziness or feelings of disorientation
  • Loss of language skills
  • Vomiting
  • Difficulty with basic motor actions and reactions
  • Distinct behavior changes

Treatment for these injuries largely depends upon the extent of damage the hematoma may cause. As hematomas can contribute to a permanent loss of skills or abilities, whether physical or cognitive, receiving medical attention as quickly as possible is ideal.
