Lawyers for internal injuries and organ damage

Damage to internal organs that results from a car crash can be dangerous and even life-threatening. Car crashes can generate significant impact forces, sudden decelerations, and sudden changes in motion, which can cause damage to internal organs.

It is essential to seek medical attention immediately if you believe you have injuries to your internal organs after a car accident.

If you suffered internal organ damage due to a car accident, it is crucial to consult with a personal injury attorney who specializes in car accident cases. They can evaluate your case, help determine liability, and assist you in seeking compensation for your medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages, and other damages resulting from the accident.

Causes of internal injuries and organ damage

Internal injuries and organ damage in car accidents can occur for a variety of reasons, such as:

  • Seat Belt Injuries: Although seat belts are essential for safety, they can also cause internal injuries. The force of the crash can cause the seat belt to press on the chest and abdomen, causing possible injury to organs such as the liver, spleen or intestines.
  • Impact with the steering wheel or dashboard: During a crash, occupants can be thrown forward, striking the steering wheel or dashboard. This impact may result in injuries to the chest, abdomen or other nearby organs.
  • Side-impact crashes: Side-impact crashes, also known as “T” accidents, can cause serious internal injuries. Impact to the side of the vehicle can cause the occupant’s body to be pushed forcefully against the door or other hard surfaces, resulting in injuries to internal organs.
  • Rollover Accidents: Rollover accidents involve the vehicle flipping or spinning, causing multiple impacts and possible crush injuries. The violent motion and forces involved in a rollover can lead to serious internal injuries and organ damage.
  • High-speed crashes: High-speed crashes can cause significant damage to internal organs. The force of the impact and sudden deceleration can result in trauma to the chest, abdomen or other areas of the body.
  • Accidents with pedestrians or cyclists: When a motor vehicle collides with a pedestrian or cyclist, the impact can cause serious internal injuries. The vulnerability of pedestrians and cyclists often leads to increased organ damage in such accidents.
  • Penetrating injuries: In some cases, car accidents can involve objects or debris penetrating the body, causing direct damage to internal organs. This can occur when objects from the crash enter the vehicle or when vehicles collide with objects on the road.

Can I File a Wrongful Death Lawsuit After Internal Organ Damage in Los Angeles?

It is possible to file a wrongful death lawsuit after organ damage in Los Angeles if the organ damage directly led to a person’s death. Surviving family members or the estate of the deceased individual may file a wrongful death lawsuit.

To file a wrongful death lawsuit, the following elements generally must be established:

  • Duty of Care: It must be shown that the party responsible for the accident owed a duty of care to the deceased person. For example, in a car accident case, all drivers have the responsibility to operate their vehicles safely and follow traffic laws.
  • Breach of duty: It must be shown that the party responsible for the accident breached their duty of care. This could involve showing that your negligent or reckless actions caused the organ damage that resulted in death.
  • Causality : There must be a direct causal link between the breach of duty and the organ damage that resulted in death. This requires showing that organ damage was a foreseeable consequence of the defendant’s actions.
  • Damages: It must be shown that the wrongful death caused damage to surviving family members or assets. Damages can include economic losses (such as medical bills and funeral costs) as well as non-economic losses (such as loss of companionship and emotional suffering).

Filing a wrongful death lawsuit can be a complicated legal process, and it is important to consult with a personal injury attorney experienced in wrongful death cases. They can guide you through the legal process, help you gather evidence, assess damages, and advocate for your rights to seek compensation for the loss of your loved one.
