Common Causes of Internal Organ Damage
Human bodies work to protect our internal organs—but any type of accident can result in devastating organ damage. Because the various internal systems of the human body are so interconnected, damage to even a single organ can have immense, widespread effects on the rest of the body.
Some examples of how organ damage can occur include:
- Car, truck, and motorcycle accidents: A violent crash can lead to brain injuries, lung punctures, and other internal organ damage.
- Pedestrian accidents: Being struck by a large, heavy vehicle while on foot can lead to serious internal organ damage.
- Medical malpractice: Organ damage can result from medication mistakes, surgical errors, and other types of medical negligence.
- Birth injuries: A newborn baby who suffers due to the negligence of a medical professional may sustain internal organ damage that can affect the remainder of his or her life.
- Nursing home negligence: Abuse and neglect can lead to liver damage, heart conditions, brain trauma, and other internal organ damage.
- Construction and railroad accidents: Workers in dangerous industries such as these tend to be more susceptible to catastrophic internal injuries.
- Workplace accidents: Exposure to toxic/harmful substances, slip and falls, burns, repetitive motion injuries, and other work-related issues can lead to organ damage.
- Defective products: Any type of defective product, from a car tire to a cell phone, can cause devastating injuries, including organ damage.
- Dog bites: If a dog attacks, biting an individual in the stomach or another exposed area, it can lead to puncture wounds and organ damage.
This list is by no means exhaustive. If you or your loved one suffered serious internal injuries as a result of someone else’s carelessness or recklessness, or even due to another party’s intentional wrongdoing, Lanier Law Group can help.
