How do internal injuries occur?
Internal injuries can occur in many ways, particularly as a result of an accident. The two main ways are as follows:
- A blunt force trauma – this is where your body stops at high speed or is hit at high speed. Examples of this would include a car collision or a fall from height. In a blunt force trauma, your internal organs come to a stop at such high speed that your blood vessels are torn or crushed. This causes internal bleeding which requires immediate treatment.
- A penetration injury – this occurs when a foreign body or sharp object pierces your body and tears blood vessels as part of the internal wound. Again, this can cause internal bleeding.
If your internal injuries have occurred as a result of an accident that was caused by someone else, you may be eligible to make a compensation claim.
Main ways of treating an internal injury
There are two main ways of treating an internal injury, linked to the severity of the injury. For a very serious internal bleed, immediate hospitalisation and surgery is likely. The surgery will attempt to stop the internal bleeding and prevent blood loss.
For a less severe injury with slow internal bleeding, you may be admitted to hospital for observation, followed by rest and recuperation.
Are you eligible to make a claim?
Checking whether you are eligible to make a compensation claim is easy. Just take a look at these three statements and see if you can answer each one with Yes:
- Your injuries occurred in an accident where someone else was to blame
