Damage to Organs

Injury, damage, or disease to vital and significant organs in your body such as the eyes, heart, kidneys, spleen, lungs, brain, liver, and stomach are considered damage to internal organs. These major organs are often damaged in medical treatment or surgery when a healthcare provider or surgeon fails to adhere to the highest standard of care and performs medical malpractice. However, informing your surgeon or doctor that their medical or surgical error has damaged your organs sometimes is not enough to receive financial compensation for damages and losses. More often than not, victims have to go through long and extensive claims processes or file lawsuits to get compensated for the damage.

Traumatic accidents like car collisions and slip and falls that damage organs can leave the victim suffering catastrophic injuries with lasting effects. Internal injuries are dangerous because there may be no apparent external injury symptoms directly after the incident, leaving openings for neglect regarding receiving the necessary emergency medical treatment.

If you or a loved one has suffered severe internal injuries after being involved in an accident caused by a negligent party, it is imperative to obtain skilled legal representation from an experienced personal injury lawyer. With several years of experience, our organ damage attorneys at The Cochran Firm can assist you through the hurdles of the legal system to recover the compensation you deserve.
