Organ Damage

organ damage

Organ damage is a serious but common side effect of many car accidents, truck accidents and motorcycle accidents. Organ damage can lead to internal bleeding, loss of function in body parts or death. Regardless of the damage caused by injured organs, it’s critical to work with an experienced lawyer who will fight for justice and maximum compensation on your behalf.

At Rosenbaum & Rosenbaum, P.C., we represent accident victims throughout New York City who are suffering from organ damage because of the negligence of another party. We handle a wide range of catastrophic injury claims, including:

  • Internal bleeding
  • Damage to the kidney, liver or heart
  • Collapsed lung, also called pneumothorax
  • Ruptured aorta
  • Ruptured spleen

Long-Term Complications Caused By Organ Damage

In addition to the immediate and life-threatening injuries caused by organ damage, accident victims may suffer from complications weeks, months or years down the road. An intra-abdominal collection of pus or abscess may occur if organ damage is not detected immediately.

A rupture in the walls of the intestine may allow intestinal contents to leak into the abdomen and cause a bacterial or fungal infection. Intestinal walls that scar when they heal may narrow the intestine and cause intestinal obstruction — an injury that often doesn’t surface until years after the initial injury.
