San Diego Internal Organ Damage Lawyers
Compensation for Internal Organ Injuries
Like the parts of a car‚ our internal organs are vital to keeping our bodies functioning and healthy. Unfortunately‚ our internal organs aren’t as easy to replace as car parts. Swapping out a carburetor or fuel pump is easier than a liver transplant. And organ transplants aren’t always possible‚ making a damaged organ untreatable‚ or treatable only through surgery or medication. People with damaged internal organs often experience life-altering side effects that can hinder their ability to earn a living and enjoy life.
If you or a loved one has suffered internal organ damage‚ you may be able to pursue compensation for your injuries. To get the settlement that you deserve‚ you need to have your case handled by an experienced San Diego personal injury attorney. Jurewitz Law Group has a mission to represent Southern California injury victims and their families.

Causes of Internal Organ Damage
There are many causes of internal organ damage‚ and most are preventable. Among the more common causes of internal organ damage are the following:
- Vehicle accidents
- Medication side effects
- Contact sports injuries
- Electrical shock
- Surgical errors
- Lack of oxygen for prolonged periods of time
- Untreated diseases (like diabetes‚ heart disease‚ liver disease‚ etc.)
Common Types of Severe Internal Organ Damage
Some of the more serious and life-threatening types of internal organ injuries include:
Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
A sudden jolt or blow to the head can cause the brain to be violently pushed against the inside of the skull. TBI can be as mild as a minor concussion‚ or severe enough to cause permanent brain damage‚ paralysis‚ and even death. Current research points to repeated mild concussions‚ like the type boxers‚ football players‚ and hockey players experience‚ leads to chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE). CTE has been recently linked to the development of dementia.
The chest holds some of the bodies most vital organs‚ including the heart and lungs. Chest injuries can also result broken ribs that can splinter and puncture internal organs.
Accidents and surgical errors can cause damage to the abdomen‚ including important organs like the liver‚ stomach‚ spleen‚ intestines‚ and kidneys. A punctured or ruptured bowel can lead to infections that will need surgery.
Internal bleeding often goes undetected and can lead to shock and death.
