We will assist you following an internal injury
Quite often internal injuries are very serious and might be life threatening in some cases. If you are suffering from this kind of injury, we are very sorry. We understand how frightening and traumatic that can be, and that recovering can take a very long time.
You might have been in the hospital for a long period of time or have undergone surgery due to your injury, and that can be very isolating and lonely. We know it may feel like you will ever be able to get things back to normal at times.
In addition to being emotionally and physically painful for your family as well a yourself, your injury probably also has stressful financial consequences as well.
The cost of needing to take time off from work to cover, in additional to other expenses like medical treatment or medication, can seriously impact your finances. You might even be struggling to pay your mortgage or other bills that you have.
We understand that at this time your main focus is on recovering. Compensation can never take away your injuries, but what it can do is help with covering the costs of your injuries, in addition to all of the pain and suffering that you and members of your family have suffered through.

Kinds of internal injuries
There are several different kinds of internal injuries, with most of them being dangerous and very painful. Internal damage is usually considered to be a serious type of injury.
There are two main categories of internal injuries:
- Blunt trauma – This is when a sudden collision or impact causes internal damage
- Penetrating trauma – When internal damage has been caused by an object puncturing the skin
The following are examples of some of the most common types of internal injuries. However, don’t worry if you don’t find your specific injury listed below. If your accident occurred within the past three years and you were not at fault, then there is a good chance we will be able to help you.
Abdominal aorta aneurysm
This is frequently caused whenever the stomach becomes compressed. It can occur during a road traffic accident where the stomach experiences sudden impact. The compression results in the aorta rupturing. The kind of injury is unfortunately fatal quite often.
This is when the lung is punctured by a broken rib and results in the lung collapsing. It may cause sudden pain and make it hard to breathe. Usually surgery will be required.
This occurs when damaged blood vessels are unable to repair themselves. This kind of injury can potentially be quite serious and may cause cardiac arrest if left untreated. Internal bleeding within the brain may lead to brain damage sometimes and have a lifelong impact.
Usually this is caused by an impact to your body’s left side. This kind of internal injury frequently requires surgery for either repairing or removing the spleen, and it may have longer term health impacts at times.
Any impact or collision may damage organs. That can cause failure or internal bleeding of the organ.
Internal injury causes
Usually internal injuries are caused by an accident when a vehicle stops suddenly or there is some type of sudden impact. They may also be caused by an object penetrating the skin deeply and causing internal damage. The following are examples of accidents that might cause internal injuries:
