Head injuries are a very serious problem for adults, as they are a leading cause of permanent disability and death. Even when the skull is not broken, the brain can suffer from injuries that can cause lifelong damage. One dangerous type of injury is an intracranial hematoma.
Head injuries can prevent you from working and providing for your family. If your head injury has been caused by another party’s negligence, this person or entity may be held liable for your suffering.

Types of Intracranial Hematomas
Intracranial hematomas, or ICH, are caused by bruising in or around the brain. The location of the blood clot typically determines the severity of the injury. The main types of ICH include:
- Epidural – the clot forms beneath the skull, but above the dura of the brain
- Subdural – the blood gathers beneath the dura, but not in the brain itself
- Intracerebral – the bleeding is within the brain, which can also cause swelling
- Diffuse axonal injury – bruising and injury occurs in many different areas of the brain because of an injury such as shaking
Severe brain injuries can leave someone in a coma or a vegetative state, if alive at all. If you or someone you know has suffered from a brain injury caused by negligence or recklessness on another party’s behalf, you may be able to seek financial compensation for damages.
