Damage to Internal OrgansPrint Page
When you get injured in a traumatic accident – whether a vehicle collision, skiing accident, or slip and fall – one of the first pieces of advice you will get from most personal injury lawyers is this: See a doctor, even if you think you feel fine. One of the primary reasons for this is the risk of a serious internal injury. Internal injuries can have devastating effects, but in many cases accident victims will not experience symptoms for hours, days or even weeks after getting injured.

The Causes and Effects of Internal Organ Damage
Damage to internal organs can result from two primary forms of trauma. The first form is “blunt trauma.” This involves an impact to the body, often with significant force and at a high rate of speed, which causes bleeding, ruptures and other injuries to organs in the abdomen, chest or other areas.
The second form of trauma that can cause internal organ damage is known as “penetrating trauma.” Penetrating traumatic injuries occur when foreign objects pierce the internal organs or blood vessels. While organ damage from blunt trauma is far more likely to go undiscovered initially, both blunt and penetrating injuries need to be treated as medical emergencies.
