When someone is involved in a carmotorcycletruck, or bicycle accident, there are usually clear signs of an injury: bleeding, a broken bone, road rash, loss of consciousness, etc. But internal injuries such as organ damage may not be immediately apparent. That’s one reason why it’s essential to get a medical examination as soon after an accident as possible. A physician will know where and how to look for injuries that aren’t visible. Getting an examination could save your life and provide important evidence should you decide to pursue a lawsuit.

Signs of Organ Damage

Organ damage can occur in a few different ways. Sometimes an injury can result from a blunt force to the abdomen, or it can happen if some object from the injury penetrates the body, causing harm to an organ. Injuries may range in severity, but the first step is detecting them. Some indicators of possible organ damage include:

  • Pain can be severe or mild. Many accident victims believe they have not sustained a serious injury if the pain is dull or manageable, but such is not the case with organ damage.
  • Weak pulse
  • Swollen abdomen
  • Blood in the urine
  • Weakness
  • Dizziness
  • Changes in blood pressure

Undetected organ damage can also lead to an infection.

Treating Organ Injuries

You have many organs, such as the liver, spleen, kidneys, lungs, and heart, and they are all responsible for different functions within your body. Treatment will, of course, depend on the organ and the severity of the injury. Medical care might include:

  • X-rays
  • MRI or CT scans
  • Surgery
  • Blood transfusion
  • Dialysis
  • Organ transplant

An experienced attorney can help calculate the compensation you will need to cover diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation from an organ injury. If your injury has altered how you live your life, you may also be entitled to pain and suffering.

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.

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!

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.
