Cedar Rapids Hematoma Lawyers
The brain is the most important organ of the body because it plays an essential role in the performance of many vital functions and is the biological location of thought and personality. Consequently, a brain injury has the potential to interfere with one’s life more than virtually any other harm that might be sustained. One form of brain injury that is likely to arise as a result of a car accident or other physical trauma is a hematoma. Hematomas involve the collection of blood outside the vascular system and if not treated immediately, can easily prove fatal.

Different Kinds of Hematoma
Although hematomas can occur virtually anywhere in the body, they are most likely to prove life-threatening when they develop within the skull under or near the brain tissue. This is particularly dangerous because the pooling of the blood can lead to an increase in pressure within the cranium that may lead to the compression of the brain itself against the skull. Other hematomas in the head can result in blood also seeping into the spinal column which can have serious adverse effects. Different kinds of hematomas include:
- Subdural hematoma
- Epidural hematoma
- Subarachnoid hematoma
