Brain aneurysms are a serious and sometimes fatal ordeal. Medical professionals should be able to detect the symptoms of an aneurysm and treat it effectively. Failure to notice or to diagnose and treat an aneurysm can result in the bursting of the aneurysm then subarachnoid haemorrhaging can occur resulting in severe brain damage or death.
Brain Aneurysms occur when there is a weakness of a blood vessel wall. Usually, the weaknesses are found in areas where the vessels branch off to other areas of the body, but they can occur anywhere. As the weakened area is typically caused by the thinning of the vessel wall, blood accumulation at that point is probable resulting in a “balloon” effect where the aneurysm. There are two terms used with aneurysms which can form on the brain. These are cerebral and intracranial.
There are a few ways in which an aneurysm can be detected prior to having a MRI or CT scan, though these are essential steps in determining the extent of an aneurysm and proper treatment. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms and believe that you may have an aneurysm you are strongly encouraged to seek the professional diagnosis of a doctor, medical staff, nurse, or practitioner. Such symptoms are:
- Migraine headaches brought on for no apparent reason
- Thunderclap headaches
- Sensitivity to the temporal area
- Lines in the vision or trouble with sight
- Vomiting and sickness caused by dizziness
- Inability to retain your balance
- Increased fatigue
- Stiff neck
- Notable bulging of any blood vessel on the head
If you notice bulging or if you have sensitivity to the skin, do not poke at it or touch it as this may cause it to rupture if it is an aneurysm. Seek immediate medical attention.
If you have suffered from a ruptured brain aneurysm and have as a result had severe physical damaged caused by the haemorrhaging on the brain, you may have grounds for a claim.
Individuals which specifically requested an MRI or a CT scan for the possibility of an aneurysm and were denied such scanning only to find out later that they did have an aneurysm definitively have grounds for a claim. Even if the aneurysm did not rupture, your health and safety were neglected.
Those who have had treatment for a brain aneurysm and have not been monitored effectively resulting in the rupture of the aneurysm may have grounds for a claim if the victim can establish that proper monitoring of the treated aneurysm would have minimised the risk for rupture or that the doctor, nurse, medical staff, or practitioner should have provided follow up procedures to reduce the risk of rupture.
Persons who have how have been released premature, or without proper treatment for their aneurysm, may have grounds for a claim.
Anyone who has had a family member die from haemorrhaging caused by a brain aneurysm which could have been detected and treated by a professional in the same field definitively has grounds for a claim, especially if the professional was advised that the symptoms may be that of a brain aneurysm or that the person is at high risk for development of an aneurysm (such as a person which worked in a highly stressful environment).
If you are currently undergoing treatment for an aneurysm you are encouraged to continue to monitor and perform the treatment as prescribed by your medical professional. If you believe that the current medical professional is negligent you are strongly encouraged to seek the second option of a doctor, medical staff, or other professional who is specialised in the area of brain aneurysms.
Claims for negligence must be filed in a timely fashion and require that certain practices and procedures be followed. We will work closely to file your documents as required. However, you need to file your claim as quickly as possible. Claims which delay their filing are far less apt to receive favourable compensation.
Each case is different and compensation will vary depending on the gravity of the case, the injuries sustained, the grossness of the negligence and other factors. You should never try to intensify your injuries to get a higher compensation. This can be deadly. It is also illegal.
