ID symptoms of a brain bleed caused by a IL Chicago car accident

One type of Illinois brain injury which is often associated with Chicago car accident  is a cerebral brain hemorrhage; Cleveland Clinic ID symptoms of this brain bleed below: 

What are the symptoms of intracranial hemorrhage?

Bleeding around or within the brain itself is known as a cerebral hemorrhage (or intracerebral hemorrhage).

  • Sudden tingling, weakness, numbness, or paralysis of the face, arm or leg, particularly on one side of the body
  • Sudden, severe headache
  • Difficulty with swallowing or vision
  • Loss of balance or coordination
  • Difficulty understanding, speaking (slurring nonsensical speech), reading, or writing
  • Change in level of consciousness or alertness, marked by stupor, lethargy, sleepiness, or coma

Bleeding around or within the brain itself is known as a cerebral hemorrhage (or intracerebral hemorrhage).

Chicago car accidents are a common cause of many types of Chicago brain injuries. This brain hemorrhage can occurs when the brain jostles against the skull during a IL car wreck, causing bleeding  after a IL crash

According to Cleveland Clinic:

Hemorrhages that occur within the skull or brain generally happen suddenly, from either external or internal causes. A hemorrhage can rapidly cause brain damage and can be life-threatening.

Since the brain cannot store oxygen, it relies upon a series of blood vessels to supply oxygen and nutrients. When a hemorrhage occurs, oxygen may no longer be able to reach brain tissue supplied by leaky or broken blood vessels. Pooling of blood from an intracranial hemorrhage or cerebral hemorrhage also puts pressure on the brain and deprives it of oxygen.

When a hemorrhage or stroke interrupts blood flow around or inside the brain, depriving it of oxygen for more than three or four minutes, the brain cells die. The affected nerve cells and the related functions they control are damaged as well.

This potentially dangerous injury should be evaluated by a medical professional as soon as possible following the accident.
