Personal Injury Law and Internal Bleeding

Share This Post

If you’ve experienced a motor vehicle accident or other personal injury, it is imperative to seek medical attention immediately. It is common for someone who has experienced an accident to feel fine after that accident and think there is no need to see a doctor. This is may be dangerous and potentially costly mistake to make. Often, there are no immediate symptoms of injury to internal organs or internal bleeding after an accident, but these are serious conditions that can have lethal consequences.

 Blunt Organ Trauma

A car accident can cause one’s body to receive a blunt impact. When this happens, internal bleeding of the organs may occur. When bleeding happens from a piercing of the body, it is easy to see. However, bleeding inside the body is not so easy to initially detect.

After an accident, some common organs that are damaged include:

  • Brain
  • Heart
  • Lungs
  • Liver
  • Kidneys
  • Pancreas
  • Spleen
  • Colon
  • Stomach

An examination by a medical professional is the only way to assess these injuries thoroughly. An X-ray, CT scan, or angiography is usually necessary to accurately assess the damage.

Internal Bleeding and “Shock”

Shock is an especially urgent matter when it comes to internal bleeding because all types of it are often life-threatening. Shock happens when your body doesn’t have enough blood making its way to the organs. This can lead to your tissues not functioning as they should and your organs failing.
