Organs such as the liver, lungs, spleen, kidneys and others are at risk of being injured when you are involved in a severe car accident. A forceful impact, broken ribs and seat belt placement all can lead to organ damage.
Some of the signs of organ damage may include:
- severe pain;
- low blood pressure;
- loss of range of motion;
- vomiting blood;
- blood in urine/bowel movements;
- shock; and
- shortness of breath.
There may be no signs that specifically indicate that organ damage has occurred. This will all depend on the type of organ damaged and the severity of the injury.
When you have suffered serious car accident injuries, such as organ damage, you should talk with a Jefferson County accident attorney as soon as possible. You may be entitled to file a Kentucky personal injury claim that addresses your medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering, and more.
