In brief: Depends

Subarachnoid hemorrhages can be reduced by avoiding head trauma which often causes it.
However it can also result from cranial blood vessel abnormalities which can spontaneously rupture. In those instances it is very hard to even know of the risk much less avoid the resulting subarachnoid hemorrhage.
