Claiming compensation for abdominal injuries
Following an accident, people can sustain various types of injuries. Fortunately, some types of harm are immediately apparent and people are able to access medical help quickly. In some cases, however, people may not realise how badly they’ve been hurt and they may delay seeking help.
Although abdominal injuries can be very serious, people aren’t always aware that they’ve sustained serious harm. They may experience pain or discomfort but not be aware that they are in a life-threatening situation.
If you’ve been involved in a traffic accident, for example, abdominal pain could indicate internal bleeding. Similarly, abdominal pain may mean that an organ has ruptured or been lacerated and this will require immediate medical attention.
If you’ve been involved in an accident and you’re experiencing abdominal pain, it’s vital that you seek medical help immediately. In most cases, diagnostic tests can be carried out to determine whether you’ve sustained a serious injury and, if you have, the right treatment can be administered.
Following this, you may need to consider whether you want to take legal action and make a personal injury compensation claim against the person responsible.
