What are the Symptoms of a Hematoma?
Symptoms of an epidural hematoma depend on how badly the brain has been injured. A commonly reported symptom is a brief period of unconsciousness, followed by a period of alertness before returning to unconsciousness or even coma. The following symptoms may indicate that a person has sustained an epidural hematoma:
- Severe headache
- Enlarged pupil
- Weakness on 1 side of the body
- Bruises around the eyes/ears
- Clear fluid draining from the nose/ears
- Shortness of breath/changes in breathing patterns
If an epidural hematoma is suspected, the patient’s doctor will perform a neurological test. Additional tests may be required to determine the size and location of the hematoma. Common tests used to diagnose an epidural hematoma include:
- Computed Tomography (CT) scan to illuminate the fine details of the brain
- Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) to examine soft tissue
- Electroencephalogram (EEG) to assess the brain’s electrical activity
- Blood Tests

Most cases involving pharmaceuticals allege that a drug was sold with design, manufacturing, and/or marketing defects, which typically refers to a company’s failure to warn of a certain side effect. In the case of Xarelto, our attorneys suspect that patients may be able to take legal action in light of claims that the manufacturers failed to adequately warn doctors and patients about the risk of epidural hematoma.
