At Morgan Law Group, our Florida car accident attorneys know that no two vehicle collisions or the injuries that result from them are the same.
The biggest reason that is true is, a broken arm can mean a day or two away from the office for someone who works behind a desk, while a restaurant server may need weeks, or even months away from work to ensure he or she does not exaggerate their injuries.
The same is true for internal injuries. It is impossible to tell immediately after a Florida car crash how your injuries are going to impact your day-to-day activities like work, or physically lifting your kids for a hug. Or how those injuries can interrupt your quality of life going forward.
Here we examine some of the most common types of internal injuries that occur during vehicle collisions in Florida, and what your financial recovery options might look like to ensure you are properly compensated.
What are the Most Common Types of Internal Injuries Caused During Florida Auto Accidents?
There is no limit to the types of internal injuries that someone can sustain during a Florida car accident.
However, some of the most common types include:
- Abdominal Aorta Aneurysms
- Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome
- Internal bleeding caused by broken ribs or other bones
- Joint, ligament, or muscle damage
- Punctured or collapsed lung(s)
- Ruptured or damaged organs
- Traumatic Brain Injuries, including swelling or bleeding in/on the brain
Seatbelts, airbags, and other car parts can cause significant internal injuries after a crash occurs, which is why it is so important to seek medical care immediately after any vehicle accident — whether you believe you are hurt or not.
Internal injuries can quickly lead to shock, permanent damage, or even death when left undiagnosed and untreated. Do not take any chances with your well-being. Seek medical care right away after a Florida auto accident and follow all doctor’s orders accordingly thereafter.
What Type of Financial Compensation Can I Pursue for Internal Injuries Caused During a Florida Vehicle Collision?
Once our clients reach maximum medical improvement, our skilled car accident lawyers in Florida will outline their complete financial damages to ensure they are not left paying for their internal injuries out of pocket.
That may include pursuing financial compensation for:
- Complete medical expenses, including rehabilitation and therapy, prescriptions, and medical devices
- Long-term and/or at-home medical care for catastrophic injuries
- Current and future lost wages, including diminished working capacity – when applicable
- Partial or full disability
