Internal Injuries Caused by Georgia Car Accidents


February 28, 2016

Car accidents can result in devastating injuries across the state of Georgia. Internal injuries are some of the most severe injuries that can accompany an automobile accident. Internal injuries occur when organs or blood vessels within the body are severely damaged, resulting in bleeding.

Internal injuries can be caused by trauma or by injuries that penetrate the body. In the event of a car accident, people inside can be thrown with considerable force, especially if the vehicle was traveling at high speeds. The force from the accident can crush or tear internal organs and blood vessels. Similarly, objects being hurtled towards passengers can penetrate the skin and damage internal organs or blood vessels.

At times, minor internal injuries can heal on their own. However, the vast majority of cases will require prompt medical treatment and likely even surgery. Internal injuries could cause serious symptoms, making them relatively easy to identify. Internal injuries might even result in loss of consciousness, unexplained bleeding, and severe pain. Anyone who has been involved in a major car accident should be evaluated for internal and other injuries.

The personal injury attorneys at Montlick and Associates, Attorneys at Law, have considerable experience representing car accident victims with internal injuries. We understand the severity of internal injuries, which can require surgery, time off work, and more. Moreover, we fight for the full recovery of injured accident victims so that they can return to their lives and work.

Types of Internal Injuries

There are many types of internal injuries, but some of the most severe include:
• Damage to internal organs, including the liver, spleen, or another organ
• Internal injury to the lungs or lung area
• Internal head injuries
• Damage to major blood vessels within the body
• Injury impacting the heart or surrounding area

Internal injuries can be life threatening. Any accident victim who has been thrown from the vehicle or been struck with something within the vehicle should be evaluated for internal injuries. Prompt treatment might be life saving and could reduce your risk of later complications.

Compensation for Your Internal Injuries

If you have suffered an internal injury in an accident, you should be able to seek compensation from the at-fault party responsible for your injuries. You could seek coverage for your medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, ongoing rehabilitation costs, and more stemming from the accident.
