Vehicle crashes, falls, and workplace events can cause several serious injuries—including organ damage—that impact you for weeks and even years to come. When you are traumatically injured, you should work with a personal injury lawyer to get the resources you need to put your life back together. The compensation will help you recover soon and restore your life back to normal.
Whether you suffer severe or light injury in a car crash, the organs that are most frequently affected are listed below. Also, see the accompanying diagram for help in locating other organs in your body that can be injured in a traumatic injury event.
Traumatic brain injuries cause instant injuries and complications that last for a long time. If not treated on time and in a proper way, brain injuries will cause long-term, life-changing problems.
Internal bleeding can be dangerous if the problem is not treated after the injury first occurs. If you have suffered internal bleeding, you should seek medical attention immediately to make sure you don’t have life-threatening injuries.
Your spleen is often injured in a traumatic event because of its position in the abdomen. When a person sustains a blow to the abdomen, the spleen may get ruptured or perforated—leading to an excessive amount of bleeding. Immediate medical assistance is required if your spleen has been injured by an impact.
The liver is the largest internal organ and is also considered an essential organ that is required for the body to function properly. If your liver is damaged to a large extent, there will be significant blood loss and a weak pulse. You may require surgery in a severe liver injury case.
