An injury that causes bleeding in the brain is a critical, time-sensitive medical crisis. When doctors treat patients who are prone to bleeding brain injuries, they must exercise the utmost caution and professional care. When they fail to do so, the patients can suffer severe and catastrophic injuries, and in many cases, wrongful death.
At Cirignani Heller & Harman, LLP, we help people who have suffered brain injuries as a result of medical malpractice. Our firm is focused exclusively on medical malpractice law, and dedicated to helping our clients obtain monetary compensation for the losses they have suffered.

Bleeding Brain Injuries and Medical Malpractice
In general, there are two types of people who are at risk of bleeding brain injuries: those with congenital abnormalities causing weakness in the blood vessels in the brain (aneurysms) and those with high blood pressure who have sustained damage to the blood vessels over time.
Both groups face the risk of hemorrhagic stroke, or strokes in which blood vessels burst and bleed into the brain and surrounding areas. It is important for doctors to be aware of such risks and to take immediate action when problems occur.
When bleeding in the brain is left unchecked, the resulting pressure can cause serious, even life-threatening brain damage. Many bleeding brain injuries result in wrongful death. Patients who survive can suffer catastrophic long-term damage, including impairments to mobility, speech and cognitive functions.
With two physician attorneys on staff who are also attorneys, and another attorney who is a respiratory therapist, our firm is well-versed in the medical aspects of bleeding brain injuries. We will carefully review the medical records and other evidence surrounding your injury to determine how this injury occurred and who was at fault. We will do everything we can to help you obtain full and fair compensation for the losses you have suffered.
