San Diego Subdural Hematoma Lawyers

Protect Yourself & Your Loved Ones from Elder Abuse in San Diego County

A subdural hematoma is a serious medical condition characterized by the accumulation of blood between the brain and its outermost covering, the dura mater. In cases of elder abuse, particularly among vulnerable individuals in nursing homes or assisted living facilities, subdural hematomas can often result from physical abuse or neglect. If you or a loved one has suffered from a subdural hematoma due to elder abuse in San Diego, it's crucial to seek legal assistance from an experienced subdural hematoma attorney like Joel Bryant to protect your rights and pursue justice.

Understanding Subdural Hematomas

A subdural hematoma occurs when blood vessels between the brain and its protective layers rupture, leading to the accumulation of blood. This buildup of blood can exert pressure on the brain, causing a range of symptoms, including headaches, confusion, dizziness, nausea, and in severe cases, coma or death. Elderly individuals are particularly susceptible to subdural hematomas due to age-related changes in the brain's blood vessels and increased risk of falls.

Elder Abuse and Subdural Hematomas

Unfortunately, subdural hematomas can also be a consequence of elder abuse, which may take various forms, including physical, emotional, financial, or neglectful abuse. Physical abuse, such as hitting, pushing, or restraining, can lead to head trauma and subsequent subdural hematomas. Neglect, on the other hand, involves the failure to provide adequate care, supervision, or medical attention, which can exacerbate existing health conditions and increase the risk of falls and injuries.

Understanding the Role of Neglect in Nursing Home Subdural Hematomas

Neglect in nursing homes can contribute significantly to the development of subdural hematomas among elderly residents. Failure to provide adequate supervision, assistance with mobility, or timely medical care can increase the risk of falls and head injuries, leading to subdural hematomas. Additionally, inadequate staffing levels, poor training, or improper use of restraints can exacerbate the risk of harm to residents.
