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.
