Sacramento Attorneys for Internal Bleeding from Car Accidents

Internal bleeding, also known as hemorrhaging, can be a very serious issue resulting from significant trauma, such as that experienced in a car accident. Individuals involved in car accidents who suspect internal bleeding should seek medical treatment immediately. In some instances, minor internal bleeding may resolve on its own. However, it can often worsen quickly, so it is always best to be evaluated by a medical professional.

If you have been involved in a car accident that wasn’t your fault that resulted in internal bleeding, you should first focus on your health and safety. Once your condition is stabilized, you should consider hiring an experienced personal injury attorney. Treating internal injuries, such as hemorrhaging, can be very expensive, with thousands of dollars in hospital care, weeks of missed work, and ongoing treatments. What’s more, the fear, anxiety, and stress that come with this traumatic injury take a toll on your mental and emotional health. The person who caused your accident should pay for your suffering.

The experienced Sacramento car accident attorneys of Tiemann Law Firm help clients suffering serious injury, such as internal bleeding from car accidents, seek financial compensation from the party at fault. Call our office today at (916) 999-9000 for a free consultation about your case.

Causes and Symptoms of Internal Bleeding

Internal bleeding happens when the walls of your blood vessels are damaged, causing them to rupture and spill blood into the surrounding body cavities. If the bleeding is minor, your body creates a clot, or plug, which stops the bleeding, and your body slowly absorbs the leaked blood. However, if the injuries are extensive, affecting multiple vessels, tissues, and organs, a clot is incapable of stopping the bleeding. As your heart continues to pump blood through your veins, the blood spills out into your body, causing a cascade of dire medical issues.

Car accidents, even minor ones, can cause internal bleeding through several means:

  • Blunt force trauma: Simply being struck at a high velocity of speed, as when driving or riding in a car at the time of a crash, can result in internal bleeding.
  • Penetration: Penetration by an external object, such as broken glass, or internally, as with a broken bone, can cause internal bleeding.
  • Deceleration: When a car has been moving (even at slow speeds) and then stops suddenly, the body is violently jerked forward, and this movement could cause internal damage. This can be exacerbated if the body is stopped through blunt force trauma, like hitting the steering wheel or the car’s side door.
  • Compression: Some car accident victims become stuck in the wreckage, causing compression of internal organs and subsequent bleeding.
  • Brain bleeding: Bleeding in the brain can be caused by wounds to the head, lack of oxygen to the brain, or excessive pressure on the brain.

The symptoms of internal bleeding range from subtle to blatantly obvious, which is why it’s always advisable to seek medical attention. Symptoms of internal bleeding may include:

  • Dizziness or light-headedness
  • Chest or abdominal pain
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Headache
  • Fainting
  • Low blood pressure
  • Vomiting blood
  • Blood in urine or stool

What to Do If You Suspect Internal Bleeding

If you suspect you’re having internal bleeding, you should seek medical attention immediately. Internal bleeding can be hard to detect but can cause serious harm and even death if not treated quickly and properly. A medical professional can identify the signs of internal bleeding and perform diagnostic tests, such as CT or MRI scans, to confirm whether internal bleeding is present. Treatment may include intravenous fluids, blood transfusion, medications, and in severe cases, surgery to stop the bleeding. Depending on the course of treatment, recovery time can range from a few days to several months.

By seeking medical treatment, you also create a record of your injuries that can be used to seek compensation from the responsible party. These records will show your diagnosis, treatment, and all associated costs, so be sure to retain them.

Why You Need an Attorney

Even with a clear record of your injuries, seeking compensation from the individual who caused the accident is not easy. Their insurance company will go to great lengths to pay as little as possible. They will try to make the process of seeking compensation burdensome in hopes that you give up and settle for a low-ball offer. There is complicated legal paperwork to complete and important deadlines to meet for filing a lawsuit. How are you supposed to figure all of this out when you’re still recovering from a serious accident?

That is why you need a strong advocate on your side. An experienced personal injury lawyer will understand the impact of your injuries physically, mentally, and emotionally. They will conduct a full investigation, review your medical records, and negotiate aggressively on your behalf. Let a lawyer shoulder the burden of seeking compensation while you focus in recovering and getting your life back together.

I sat down and met with Jelena Tiemann about my vehicle accident.I presented all of my documentation to her in which she gave me her assessment.Although the Tiemann Law Firm wont be representing me because my settlement offer was pretty good she was very clear,forward and professional about what she felt could and couldn't be done.I recommend this law firm to anyone who needs a helping hand at fighting a case where you don't have to worry about the outcome not going in your favor. Please don't review this business if you received a freebie for writing this review, or if you're connected in any way to the owner or employees.

The Tiemanns were referred to me by a friend and I am exceptionally happy with the service I received. I had never been in an accident before. I had no idea what to do. Jelena verbally explained how everything would work to me, and she and Peter handled everything. I didn't have to lift a finger once. They went above and beyond for me and I am extremely grateful. I pray I won't ever need this type of assistance again, but I will definitely be referring them to friends and family.

I highly recommend The Tiemann Law Firm! I had never before been in a situation where I sustained injury and had to seek legal representation. I was nervous, traumatized, and had no idea what to expect. Jelena, Peter, and their staff walked me through each step of the process. They explained everything in detail. They patiently answered all my questions, responded quickly to every email, text message, phone call, etc. I felt totally prepared for each new phase of the legal process. Furthermore, they were fearless in their defense of me. In certain situations, when I felt attacked or scared my attorney protected me like I was family. Their diligence, honesty, integrity, and compassion provided a true sense of healing and closure for my family and I. The Tiemann Law Firm accomplished more for me than I ever thought possible and I am forever grateful.

From the very start of my case the Tiemann Law Firm was wonderful. Perter came all the way to my home to sit down and talk to me about my options. He made me and my partner feel very comfortable and promised us he would take the very best care of my case. Peter kept me informed every step of the way and was always on top of things. everything was done in a timely manor and I always felt like I was the only case he was working on because he was so fast. In the end Peter got me back way more money than I ever expected. I would recommend this law firm to everyone. I am very happy with the outcome of my case thanks to the Tiemann Law Firm! Thank you!

No one wants to have to hire a lawyer, but if you do. I prefer Tiemann Law. They helped a family member who was injured on the job, and the company did not want to compensate him even though, the injury occurred on the job on company time. Jelena was always professional in explaining the lengthy process of fighting a large corporation. 2 years later he finally is receiving the deserved compensation.

I just saw my lawyer Jelena Tiemann on a t.v ad, which reminded me how much she helped when I was in a desperate situation. I just love her! That is why I feel a need to tell everyone. I had a situation that happened & didn’t know what to do, our where to go. I didn’t even know if she could help me or if any lawyer could. All I wanted was it to go away & was afraid most lawyers wanted to drag it out & possibly go to court. For one she was very professional but was very personable (maybe b.c she’s a lady). She didn’t make me feel embarrassed or self-conscious that I did something wrong or was the cause of the situation. She immediately said we should try our best before going to court. Let me handle some paperwork, if at the last we do go to court we have documents. She gave me all the details, pros and cons but reassured me she deals with these cases all the time. She came through and made it as painless as possible. I now have my life back.

I was in a car accident a while back where I was injured and had to miss work for an extended period of time.  After nearly a year of fighting with the insurance company with no results and no progress, I met with Jelena Tiemann.  I couldn't have asked for a more responsive and supportive advocate.  We quickly reached a settlement and I finally was able to move from the stress and burden of feuding with my insurance.  I highly recommending meeting with Jelena if you're in need of a lawyer.
