At Thompson’s we would like to reassure all our clients that as far as possible we are operating as normal. The health and safety of our staff and clients is our primary concern during this outbreak and as such we are reviewing the situation on a regular basis and will be adapting our working practices following government guidelines. However, we have had to make some minor changes to how we are doing things.

Following Government guidelines, we have temporarily closed all of our offices and our staff are now all working from home using secure technologies to ensure they are able to continue to progress with existing and new cases as normal. All face to face meetings have been cancelled, however we are continuing to hold these meetings via phone and video calls. All the team are contactable on their direct dial numbers and email should you need to speak with your solicitor, please do not hesitate to talk to us about anything during this time.

We know these are uncertain and unsettling times for many of our clients, and the wider population, and things might look a little different for the foreseeable future. But our focus remains on our dedication, knowledge and strength that we provide to all our clients. We will continue to provide updates over the coming days and weeks in accordance with official guidelines and to keep everyone informed of the situation.

As always, for any concerns, advice and updates on your case; Talk to Thompsons.

Brain Haemorrhage Claims

Specialist legal care for serious situations

Bleeding on the brain

A brain haemorrhage is any injury in which there is bleeding on or around the brain. The most common cause is a traumatic blow to the head or a haemorrhagic stroke (also know as a ruptured aneurysm).

Even a seemingly minor head injury can result in a brain haemorrhage, with symptoms sometimes taking as long as several weeks to develop. Medical investigation is essential following an accident if there is any reason to suspect the victim could be suffering from a bleed in the brain (see the list of symptoms below).

If you or someone close to you has suffered a brain haemorrhage as a result of a blunt trauma head injury or another form of accident, you may be entitled to make a brain injury compensation claim. Talk to Thompsons' personal injury solicitors today for more information.

The four types of brain haemorrhage

A patient may be diagnosed with one of four types of brain haemorrhage depending on where the bleeding is situated. These are as follows:

The consequences of a brain haemorrhage

Brain haemorrhages can result in serious long-term consequences: physical, cognitive and emotional.

Early diagnosis is critical if a patient is to reduce the possibility of long-term damage. CT scans and/or MRI scans may be used to achieve a diagnosis. Any of the following problems should prompt immediate medical investigation:

  • Severe headaches
  • Nausea
  • Vision problems
  • Seizures
  • Loss of consciousness

Brain injury compensation claims

If you or someone close to you has suffered a brain haemorrhage as a result of another party's negligence – for example, a work accident, a road traffic accident or a slip, trip or fall – you may be able to claim compensation for your pain, injury, loss of amenity, expenses, care costs and more.
