Car Accidents and abdominal injuries

by Five Fantastic Lawyers™ on February 14, 2011

Abdominal injuries are common in car accidents and are extremely dangerous as they can cause serious damage to liver, kidneys, spleen or intestinal tract.

The abdominal is most likely to be injured in a car accident where the steering wheel or some other hard object hits the chest or stomach. This can cause rib pain or even rib fractures, which then can further cause inner bleeding.  Furthermore, rupture of abdominal aorta may occur. When the stomach is severely compressed, it may burst and if it does, it is almost certainly going to be a fatal injury to the patient.

Sometimes, the internal bleeding may be minor initially and then get worse if the injury is left unnoticed and untreated.. It is useful to remember, therefore, what are the symptoms of internal bleeding: turning pale, pain, tiredness, thirst and feeling cold.

If you or anyone in your family has suffered from injuries in a car accident, please do not hesitate to contact Thompsons No Win No Fee specialists who will advise you on your first steps to receiving the compensation that you deserve.
