Internal Organ Injuries

Alexandria Firm Represents Victims of Internal Organ Injuries

Attorneys seek compensation for clients who suffer organ damage in accidents

A blunt force trauma or penetrating wound is capable of inflicting severe damage on one or more of the body’s internal organs. These injuries often require immediate intensive medical treatment to prevent death and restore function. However, even with the best healthcare, many victims never recover from the harm done to their liver, spleen, kidneys, pancreas, or other internal organs. The attorneys at Curcio Law in Alexandria are experienced Virginia litigators who have the ability and dedication to secure the compensation that appropriately addresses the short and long-term effects of internal organ injuries.

Virginia firm handles a full range of internal injury claims

Our firm represents Virginia clients in claims arising from injuries involving the following internal organs:

  • Liver — One of the most common internal organ injuries is a liver laceration. Depending on the severity of the tear, surgery might be required, and the recovery period could last months.
  • Spleen — Located below the left ribcage, the spleen prevents germs from entering the blood. Frequently, the spleen is ruptured in a car accident, causing blood to leak into the abdomen, which could have life-threatening consequences. If this occurs, the spleen might need to be removed permanently.
  • Kidneys — A fall in which someone lands on their lower back might lead to a kidney contusion that triggers persistent bleeding in the most serious cases. Victims of car, bicycle, and motorcycle collisions also might experience a kidney injury, which is usually detected by noticing blood in one’s urine.
  • Pancreas — Though not as common as some other internal organ injuries, a traumatic blow to the pancreas has many potential effects, including blood loss and shock.
  • Stomach, intestines, and colon — Substantial impact to the abdomen could trigger one or more hollow viscus injuries, which affect parts of the gastrointestinal system, such as the stomach, intestines, and colon.
  • Bladder — In a crash, a seatbelt might be pressed against a bladder, causing it to rupture and leak urine into the victim’s abdomen. As a result, the victim might experience pain and urinary problems.
  • Lungs – Located directed behind the rib cage, lungs are often injured in car wrecks due to extreme pressure placed upon the rib cage by a restraining seatbelt or by the chest or torso hitting a door or dashboard. Such injuries often include collapsed or punctured lungs, are serious, and often require surgery.

While some internal organ injuries heal with rest and non-surgical treatment, a puncture wound or extremely heavy impact is capable of causing a catastrophic injury or even death. Whatever the specific harm is in your case, our dedicated Virginia personal injury attorneys will work diligently to maximize your financial recovery in settlement negotiations, and at trial if necessary.

Types of accidents that cause harm to internal organs

The weight and velocity of motor vehicles pose a serious threat to collision victims, even if they are wearing a seat belt. Many lawsuits related to internal organ injuries arise from auto accidents. Our firm has substantial experience representing clients in insurance claims and litigation arising from vehicle crashes. These types of injuries are also linked to falls on unsafe surfaces and defective products that explode or cause an impact on an individual’s midsection. Regardless of the particular cause, we are dedicated to collecting full compensation for all aspects of a plaintiff’s damages, including their full medical costs, lost wages, physical pain, mental suffering, and inconvenience resulting from their internal organ injury.
