NEW YORK CITY ABDOMINAL INJURY ATTORNEY

NEW YORK CITY ABDOMINAL INJURY ATTORNEY

According to the National Institute of Health, abdominal injuries are prone to delayed symptoms that may be serious or even fatal.  Abdominal injuries can be caused by trauma from an accident or crime, by medical malpractice or by a combination of both these causes.  When you’ve sustained an abdominal injury from an accident or malpractice, it’s a good idea to call a New York City abdominal injury attorney to see if you are entitled to compensation.

Traumatic abdominal injuries are usually caused by traffic accidents, falls or criminal events.  These traumatic abdominal injuries can either be caused by blunt trauma or penetration trauma such as a gunshot.  The National Center for Biotechnology Information considers “penetrating trauma of the abdomen continues to be a major cause of trauma admission in the United States.”   Sometimes the injury can be a combination of both blunt and penetration trauma. Abdominal trauma can be life-threatening due to heavy bleeding.  Internal bleeding can lead to systemic infections. Damage is possible to vital organs such as the liver, kidneys, pancreas and spleen.  If you have sustained a serious injury, an abdominal injury attorney can explain your rights.

Some abdominal injuries are catastrophic and a person is airlifted for immediate surgery.  Others can be more subtle, so it is important to know what symptoms to look for if you have suffered even the slightest abdominal trauma.

  • Bruising in the “seat belt” area
  • Abdominal pain
  • Nausea and Vomiting
