Brain Bleed Aneurysms

Brain Bleed/Aneurysms in Medical Malpractice

Brain bleeds and aneurysms are life-threatening medical conditions that often go undiagnosed and, as a result, are closely associated with medical malpractice. If you or someone you care about suffered an intracranial hemorrhage – brain bleed – or aneurysm as a result of delayed diagnosis or misdiagnosis, don’t wait to consult with an experienced Charleston medical malpractice attorney.

Undiagnosed Brain Aneurysms Often Lead to Intracranial Bleeding

A cerebral aneurysm – also called an intracranial or brain aneurysm – refers to an artery in the brain that balloons or bulges abnormally, which can lead to excess pressure on the surrounding brain tissue and nerves. As the walls of the blood vessels continue to thin, they become more prone to rupturing, which translates to life-threatening bleeding into or around the brain. Misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis in relation to aneurysms leaves clients extremely vulnerable to fatal or catastrophic consequences.

A recent study published by the National Library of Medicine reports that intracranial hemorrhages are a potentially fatal condition that is frequently misdiagnosed. Without prompt diagnosis and effective treatment, the chances of survival decrease significantly. In fact, brain bleeds account for about 15 percent of all strokes in the United States and are one of the primary causes of death. In other words, clinical misdiagnosis, or failure to treat an aneurysm can have dire consequences, and misdiagnosis rates range from 5 to 51 percent – according to available statistics.
