Brain bleeds: Here's what you should know

There are many kinds of traumatic brain injuries, but one that needs immediate care is a brain bleed. When the brain is bleeding, pressure builds up inside the skull. There is a real risk that further damage could occur as the room inside the skull is limited and pressure is placed on the brain.

A brain bleed, also known as a brain hemorrhage, can be deadly. The speed at which the blood flows into the skull, the swelling of the brain as well as other factors play a role in how serious the condition is. When the brain is bleeding, the normal flow of oxygen is also impaired, which can lead to a stroke.

What are the symptoms of a brain hemorrhage after a crash?

After a collision, you may notice these symptoms in yourself or someone else involved. Call 911 to seek immediate care.

Symptoms of a brain bleed include:

  • A loss of balance and coordination
  • Trouble swallowing
  • Tingling, weakness, paralysis, numbness or other unusual sensations in the face, legs or arms
  • Trouble understanding speech
  • Being unable to read or write
  • Speaking with a slurred accent or making no sense when speaking
  • Changes in the level of consciousness
  • Sudden difficulty with vision
  • A severe headache

Interestingly, many brain bleeds do not require treatment. A computerized tomography (CT) scan can be used to check the brain for bleeding, as can a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan. Depending on the severity of the bleed, a medical provider may use medications to manage pressure in the skull. In some severe cases, surgery may be a necessary treatment option.

If you suffered a brain injury due to another party's negligence, you may have options for financial recovery. Find out more today.
