Athens Internal Injury Attorneys
Internal injuries are a common result of motor-vehicle accidents in Athens
Many people suffer from internal injuries after Athens collisions. Internal injuries present a number of dangers to the injured because they can quickly develop into more serious conditions. Even low-speed crashes can result in serious trauma to the interior of the body.
Some of the most common internal injuries we expect to see after an Athens accident include:
- Abdominal aorta aneurysm: A rupture to the abdominal aorta is caused by a compressed stomach, commonly seen in traffic crashes; this is typically a fatal injury.
- Broken ribs: Fractured ribs have the potential to damage internal organs such as lungs or major blood vessels.
- Internal bleeding: When damage is inflicted on blood vessels in the body and they cannot repair themselves or clot. Some common symptoms include: fatigue, thirst, light-headedness, and abdominal pain.
- Organ injury: High-impact collisions can cause damage to the organs which can cause internal bleeding, or can cause the organ to shut down completely.
- Ruptured spleen: Commonly associated with severe internal bleeding, a ruptured spleen often requires surgery to repair.
