In brief: Depends

A bleed in (or on) the brain can happen following trauma but also be due to vascular lesions and stroke.
Bleeding in the wrong part of the brain can lead to significant functional loss. If you think you have a bleed in the brain you need to get to the er immediately. Since most brain bleeds are random events, you shouldn't worry about this as it is not that common.
