Wilmington Internal Organ Damage Lawyer

We Represent Clients In Catastrophic Injury Cases In North Carolina

Damage to the internal organs can be life-threatening – and difficult to detect at first. Internal organs are controlled by the autonomic nervous system, which does not send pain signals in the same way to the brain. For this reason, a person suffering from internal organ damage may complain that he doesn’t feel well in a general way, or indicate that one part of the body, distant from the organ that has been damaged, is tender or painful.

There are many causes of internal organ damage, including vehicle accidents, surgical errors, and falls. If you sustained an internal injury due to someone else’s negligence, you should speak to a Wilmington personal injury attorney. There may be compensation available, and a lawyer will help you get it. Call Rhine Law Firm, P.C., at (910) 772-9960 for a free consultation about your situation.

Common Causes of Internal Organ Damage

Due to the complexity of auto accidents, and the fact that no two accidents are exactly the same, there are many ways internal organs can be damaged during a crash. A vehicle part, or something inside the vehicle, could puncture an organ. The blunt force of a wreck could also be enough to cause internal organ damage.

Bicyclists and pedestrians are particularly susceptible to internal organ damage in a collision, because they have nothing protecting their organs. Unlike vehicle occupants, who have a steel frame, airbags, and seat belts protecting them, cyclists and pedestrians have very little. When bicyclists or pedestrians are hit by a car, internal organ damage is likely.

Surgical malpractice may damage organs more often than people think. Surgeons can remove the wrong body part, such as the wrong kidney, or leave a foreign object behind, such as a sponge, knife, or clamp. These objects can puncture an internal organ and cause further damage. During surgery, nearby internal organ can also be sliced or punctured, leading to infections and other complications.

Slip-and-falls are not only a common accident in the United States, but the blunt force of hitting the ground can also damage the liver, kidneys, and spleen.

Internal injuries are some of the most complicated to treat, and the most painful to recover from. If another person or company contributed to your injury, you shouldn’t have to bear the costs alone.

Liability for an Internal Organ Injury

If someone else is at fault for your injury, you may be able to file a lawsuit against that person to claim compensation. Compensation for injured individuals can include money for medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering, and more.

While it may seem obvious to the injured individual who is at fault, for example, a drunk driver who struck you on the road, finding the evidence to prove it can be more difficult. For this reason, anyone suffering from an internal injury should hire an experienced NC injury lawyer to build a strong case from the start. In most personal injury cases, injured individuals in North Carolina have three years from the date of the injury to file a lawsuit. Because an injury isn’t always apparent right away, those injured may also have three years from the date they discovered the injury.

This ticking clock makes it important for you to speak to a North Carolina personal injury attorney right away. If you have been injured in an accident due to someone else’s negligence, call Rhine Law Firm, P.C., today at (910) 772-9960. You don’t have to fight this on your own. We’re here to help.
