Some of the more common injuries suffered during a vehicle accident include hematomas and lacerations. While they aren’t always serious, there are times these types of injuries can lead to a lifetime of pain and suffering, and thousand upon thousands of dollars in medical bills.
At Georgelis Injury Law Firm, our experienced personal injury and workers’ compensation attorneys have seen how devastating some of the hematoma and laceration injuries can be, and we have aggressively pursued and won millions of dollars in compensation for these victims.
Violent crashes often lead to serious external and internal trauma. One of the most common injuries people experience following an auto accident, truck accident, motorcycle accident, or a slip and fall is bruising.
Bruising, or hematomas, can happen anywhere on the body. The sudden impact of a collisions can cause bruising to the skin, muscles, organs, breasts, bones, and even the brain. While most bruises will diminish after a few weeks, there are others that take months to fade away.
The bruising of internal organs in the abdomen, such as the liver, spleen, and stomach can be incredibly dangerous and can lead to lifelong complications.
Treatment for internal bruising varies, but often includes a hospital stay, bedrest, medication, intravenous fluids, blood transfusions, and even surgery.
It is important to note that in many cases, symptoms of internal bleeding may not present right away. That is why it is critical to be examined by a medical professional immediately following any accident that has jolted your body. Soft tissue trauma and bad bruises after a car crash can be just as serious as open wounds. Left untreated, your health situation could become much, much worse.
Lacerations are deep cuts, gashes, or tears within the skin that often leave accident victims with unsightly and debilitating scars. Even worse, these types of injuries can cause pain, long-term disability, and in rare cases, death.
If you or a loved one has suffered from severe cuts or lacerations after a motor vehicle accident, and it was due to someone else’s carelessness or negligence, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
When an accident happens on the road, broken glass, metal, plastic, and all types of objects can go flying, puncturing the skin of the driver, the passenger, or a pedestrian nearby. While some of these lacerations will heal on their own, the deeper cuts could result in serious blood loss.
The scars from these accidents are often debilitating and leave the victim feeling insecure and depressed. When an accident leaves you with severe lacerations, you may be able to recover damages from the driver that was at fault. This includes past, present or future medical bills, along with:
