Internal organ injuries and lacerations are serious and sometimes life
threatening. Falls from heights, impalement,
crush injuries, pinning injuries, and electric shocks are some causes of internal injuries in
construction site accidents. A high impact
car accident can cause internal injuries if the body hits the steering wheel or windshield,
and even sometimes from the very seatbelt worn for crash protection.
Internal organs such as liver, lungs, bile duct, kidneys, spleen, stomach,
gall bladder, and the aorta can be injured due to an accident and may
require major life and psychological adjustments – if the initial
trauma is survived. However, trauma to internal organs is not always easy
to identify in the immediate aftermath of an accident except, sometimes,
when there’s blood in the accident victim’s urine. In the
event of an internal accident-related injury, immediate treatment at a
hospital or trauma center is imperative in order to avoid long-term damage or death.
If you believe you may have sustained an internal injury in a
construction accident, it is important that you see a doctor or go to the hospital immediately.
After emergency medical care is received, longer term issues, such as
financial security and rehabilitation must be addressed. At times internal
injury accident victims may pursue a worker’s compensation claim,
a general negligence claim, and even a products liability or medical malpractice
claim as well.
