New Jersey Car Accident Organ Damage Lawyers

Organ Lacerations and Injuries In An Auto Accident

Our internal organs are vital to keeping our bodies functioning and healthy. Injury to any of these organs can cause life-altering, permanent health effects on the victim and even death. Statistics show that the leading cause of internal organ injuries in the United States is motor vehicle accidents. Motor vehicles are large, heavy machines capable of traveling at high speeds. But the bodies being carried by these dangerous machine are made of mere flesh and blood. While a motor vehicle involved in a medium speed collision may incur moderate damage, a human body inside that vehicle may suffer severe injury and even death.

If you or a family member has suffered organ damage in a motor vehicle accident, you may be able to pursue compensation for damages if another party's negligent or careless behavior contributed to the accident. To get the settlement you and your family deserve, it is crucial that you consult an experienced traffic accident attorney. For years, Lependorf & Silverstein, P.C. has successfully represented Princeton area accident victims and their families.

Common Types of Severe Internal Organ Damage

Motor vehicle accidents can result in severe internal organ damage. Some of the most common internal injuries suffered in vehicle accidents include:

  • Traumatic brain injury: Traumatic brain injury (TBI) results from a sudden blow or jolt to the head, causing the brain to violently reverberate within the skull. The affects of TBI can be as minor as a concussion or traumatic enough to cause permanent brain damage. Recent studies suggest that repeated concussive head trauma, even though mild, can lead to chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE). CTE has been linked to dementia later in life.
  • Chest injuries: The chest contains some of the body's most vital organs, aside from the brain--notably the heart and the lungs. Injuries to the chest cavity can result in irreversible organ damage and death. Chest injuries in a motor vehicle accident are most often cause by upper body's violet contact with a steering wheel, dashboard, seat back, or airbag.
  • Abdominal injuries: Motor vehicle accidents involving impact to the upper abdomen can result in damage to organs like the liver, stomach, spleen, intestines, and kidneys. A punctured or ruptured bowel can lead to infections that will require surgery.
  • Internal bleeding: Internal bleeding is a life threatening injury that can often go undetected until it is too late. Internal bleeding is often not suspected because physicians are focused on the more obvious external injuries of an accident victim. Meanwhile, a patient may be bleeding to death from within.
