What are subarachnoid haemorrhage medical negligence claims?

According to the NHS, a subarachnoid haemorrhage is "an uncommon type of stroke caused by bleeding on the surface of the brain." There are often no warning signs, but a subarachnoid haemorrhage sometimes happens during physical effort or straining. Symptoms can include sudden onset of a severe headache (often described as "the worst headache of my life", nausea and vomiting, stiff neck, sensitivity to light, blurred or double vision, loss of consciousness and seizures.

When a medical professional’s negligence has caused you to suffer a subarachnoid haemorrhage injury, the effect upon you and your loved ones can be devastating and could change your life completely. If mistakes made by medical professionals have caused you further injury, you may be entitled to compensation.

How do I manage financially before a case has settled?

Interim payments are payments which are made before your case reaches a final conclusion. They can be extremely useful for those who've experienced a subarachnoid haemorrhage injury as they can pay for private medical treatments, rehabilitation support and equipment, as well as providing financial support if you’ve suffered a loss of earnings.

We’ll ensure we secure interim payments for you at the earliest convenience. Contact us to establish your full legal position 0161 830 9632.

Every case of subarachnoid haemorrhage negligence is different, and the final amount of compensation awarded will be based on the severity of the injury and the affect the injury has had on your life. Additionally, you’ll also be able to claim for any lost earnings, any long-term care, rehabilitation and any necessary house adaptations to maximise the chance of recovery and independent living.

We’ll also ensure that any compensation claim includes the cost of everything necessary to provide you with the best quality of life possible in the future, such as future care costs, future treatment and future loss of earnings.
