Florida Internal Injuries

Internal injuries caused by an accident are serious and potentially life threatening. They often are not noticed at the time of the accident and go undetected. They happen in an auto accident when an individual is violently shaken after a collision occurs.

Generally, internal injuries cause internal bleeding and require immediate medical attention. The common signs of an internal injury include abdominal pain, dizziness, bruising, leg pain, headaches and loss of consciousness.

Not all internal injuries are caused by automobile accidents, however. Internal injuries can also happen after a medical procedure when the surgeon does not perform the procedure correctly. Another common cause of internal injuries, particularly internal bleeding, is a slip and fall accident.

Common types of internal injuries are:

  • Head trauma with internal bleeding.
  • Bleeding around the lungs.
  • Bleeding around the heart.
  • Tears in the large blood vessels near the center of the body.
  • Damage caused by trauma to the abdomen such as liver or spleen lacerations or perforation of other soft organs.

Regardless of how the internal injuries occurred, all these events can lead to permanent damage and you might incur significant medical expenses.
