hemorraghic stroke

In December my mom had a hemorraghic stroke. She was treated at a premier neurological hospital in a major city. All of the neurologists definitively said she was having the stroke before she fell and hit her head. Unfortunately the damage was too severe for her to survive. When the paramedics first saw her she was answering their questions just fine and then suddenly they rushed her to the hospital. Was this a lucid interval? There is no reason to think that the fall caused the bleeding is there? They ALL told us no because of where she hit her head and the direction of the bleeding. This issue just keeps nagging at me because we had to make the heart-wrenching decision not to prolong her suffering.
