Internal Bleeding Injuries After an Accident

Long Island Internal Bleeding Lawyers

Internal bleeding injuries is a very serious and potentially fatal injury that can occur after all types of catastrophic accidents. There are many times an immediate need for surgery when someone is experiencing internal bleeding in order to bring the hemorrhaging to a stop. In some of the more severe cases, internal bleeding can lead to death due to blood clots, blood loss, and organ trauma. When you or a loved one is involved in any kind of serious accident, there will be a risk of sustaining an injury that subsequently leads to internal bleeding. Some common types of accidents that lead to internal bleeding include car accidents and even slip and fall situations.

Common Causes of Internal Bleeding

Internal bleeding is typically the result of a very serious impact on an accident victim’s body, including the following amounts of force:

  • Blunt Trauma: There are many instances in which a blunt force trauma won’t necessarily result in external wounds, but when enough compression is accompanied with the force it can end up causing an individual’s internal organs to dangerously bleed. This can lead to the organ’s lining being torn, which can cause an array of serious medical complications. An example would be retroperitoneal bleeding as a result of internal bleeding near the victim’s kidneys.
  • Deceleration Trauma: Deceleration trauma can cause a person’s organs to shift, which can cause blood vessels to tear and result in internal bleeding. Deceleration trauma is commonly associated with intracranial bleeding, which can lead to other types of brain injuries. Even a rather small amount of excess blood within an individual’s brain can lead to a tremendous amount of added cranial pressure, and can subsequently lead to decreased brain functionality.
  • Bone Fractures: Broken bones as a result of an accident can often be the root cause of internal bleeding, and this is sometimes because a lot of blood may be lost when a bone severely fractures. There are also instances in which blood vessels around larger, flat bones (like the pelvis) are torn by an accident’s trauma, which then can create serious internal bleeding.

Internal Bleeding Symptoms

It’s always very important for accident victims to thoroughly understand the common symptoms associated with internal bleeding. There are some situations in which people won’t notice these internal bleeding signs until days later, which can, of course, be very detrimental and even fatal.

Some of the common signs of abdominal internal bleeding include:

  • Vomiting blood
  • Blood in urine/stools
  • Pain/tenderness
  • Discoloration
  • Lightheadedness
  • Lower blood pressure
  • Shortness of breath
  • Shock

In terms of intracranial bleeding, some of the common symptoms include:

  • Strokes
  • Altered mental functionality
  • Vision loss
  • Weakness

Internal Bleeding Treatments

In any situation in which an accident victim is showing signs or symptoms of internal bleeding, it’s absolutely imperative that the victim gets medical attention in order to evaluate and treat the affected area.

Some common internal bleeding treatments include the following:

  • Blood transfusions
  • Surgery
  • Blood clot medications
