Crushed or Bruised Organs / Organ Damage
Los Angeles Serious Injury Attorney

A car accident, workplace accident, motorcycle accident, or virtually any other situation in which a person suffers grave injury may cause crushed or bruised organs - and if untreated, this may lead to permanent damage or even death. If someone you love was injured in a bad accident and suffered organ damage, you may have grounds for a personal injury claim if someone else was responsible for causing the accident.

Organ Damage & Negligence
Under California personal injury law, negligence is defined as an action or failure to act that causes injury to another person, stemming from a failure to act with reasonable caution or care. Car accidents are the most common grounds of injury claims throughout the U.S. and these may also be a cause of crushed or bruised organs - depending on the force and location of impact. Although organ damage may be more likely in a high-impact accident involving a pedestrian, motorcycle or large truck, almost any forceful blow to the body may bruise or otherwise damage internal organs in the abdomen, chest cavity or digestive tract. This may lead to internal bleeding and may be fatal if untreated. The brain may also be at risk of sustaining injury due to bruising in an accident, even if the head itself is not hit. A sudden impact to the body, for example, may cause the head to whip forward and backward, causing the brain to collide with the skull. Contact a Los Angeles injury lawyer at our law firm if you need help with a claim or lawsuit involving any type of organ damage.
