San Diego Abdominal Injury Attorney

Abdominal Injuries in a Car Accident

When considering injuries that result from motor vehicle accidents, most of us think of injuries like whiplash, concussions, broken bones, or cuts and bruises. In reality, many serious internal injuries can also be suffered in a vehicle accident. Like our brains, our internal organs are vital to our bodies. An injury to our abdominal organs can be every bit as fatal as a brain injury or heart injury. Unfortunately, injuries to abdominal organs don't always have the immediate outward symptoms other injuries have. An accident victim may feel fine and be given a clean bill of health while a serious condition exists internally.

If you or a family member suspects they may have suffered an internal organ injury, don’t hesitate to get medical attention. Once the victim has been treated, your next step should be to consult an experienced San Diego car accident attorney. Jurewitz Law Group has represented Southern California motor vehicle accident victims for over 15 years. We will take a personal interest in your case and use our experience to get you the best settlement possible.

Damages for Abdominal Injuries

The abdominal cavity contains some of our most important organs, such as the liver, spleen, kidneys, stomach, pancreas, gallbladder, intestines, and adrenal glands. If you have suffered an abdominal injury in a motor vehicle accident, you can pursue damages for the following:

  • Current medical bills
  • Future medical bills for surgeries, medications, etc.
  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental trauma
  • Replacement of organic organs with artificial organs
  • Lost wages from missed work
  • Permanent injury and disability
  • Loss of occupation or earning ability
  • Wrongful death damages

Causes of Internal Abdominal Injuries in a Vehicle Accident

  • Motor vehicles can achieve a significant amount of force and momentum, even when traveling at low speeds. When a vehicle hits a stationary object or a vehicle traveling in the opposite direction, the momentum of the vehicle is transferred to the vehicle’s occupants. In such a case, internal organs can become detached or rupture, resulting in internal bleeding.
  • The sudden deployment of airbags can seriously injure your unprotected abdominal organs with their force.
  • Seat belts that may save your life, but they can cause serious injury to the abdominal region. This was a major reason shoulder straps were introduced in the 1970s.
