Serious accidents may cause damage to internal organs when these body parts slam against one another or into other structures of the body, or are penetrated by foreign objects. Victims of medical malpractice – particularly surgical errors – are also vulnerable to internal organ damage and bleeding.
Internal organ damage often requires surgery, and may result in the loss of the damaged organ or a portion of it, such as a section of bowel, for example. In some cases, organ damage and internal bleeding are overlooked after an accident because many symptoms cannot be seen. This leads to complications such as infection or even wrongful death.
If you or your family member have suffered internal organ damage in an accident caused by someone else’s negligence, you may be able to obtain compensation for medical expenses, lost income, pain, suffering, and other losses.
