Internal Organ Damage
Internal Organ Damage Lawyers
Internal organ damage can be the result of many injuries caused by the negligence of another. Bad car accidents, truck accidents, work place injuries, and dangerous products or properties could all cause internal organ damage depending on the nature of the injury. Damage to the organs can be permanent and cause the need for organ transplants, continuous medical treatment, possible follow up surgeries, and lifelong medical care. In the worst cases victims can lose their lives. There are even times when an unrelated injury can also cause organ damage.
After any trauma, burn, fracture, or even surgery, bleeding and swelling can occur underneath the skin, this is called compartment syndrome. This bleeding and swelling causes increased pressure to the area of the body that experienced the trauma, most commonly arms, legs, and the abdomen. When this happens to arms or legs and is not diagnosed and treated right away it can lead to permanent nerve or muscle damage, and even the loss of a limb. When this happens to the abdomen and is not diagnosed and treated right away it can lead to permanent internal organ damage which could lead to organ failure, the need for organ transplants, and even death.
Not only do the victims suffer indefinitely with these injuries, but those close them also suffer. The physical, emotional, and financial strain that catastrophic injuries cause often puts stress on family members and those close to the victim. Many times after a catastrophic injury the victim needs constant support and care causing relatives and loved ones to also have to alter their lives as a result.
While developing compartment syndrome is not negligence, health providers failing to diagnose and subsequently treat compartment syndrome is negligence. It’s hard to imagine but some health care providers do not always listen or take complaints of increased pain from patients seriously causing compartment syndrome to worsen and leave permanent damage.
