Abdomen Injury Compensation

Injuries to the abdomen can lead to ongoing health issues like chronic pain, internal organ damage, and gastrointestinal complications. Such trauma can affect the liver, spleen, or intestines, potentially causing long-term functional problems or infections. Scar tissue formation may also lead to adhesions, which can cause bowel obstruction or discomfort. In some cases, abdominal injuries might contribute to the development of hernias, where internal tissues protrude through weakened abdominal walls.

Blunt Abdominal Trauma

Following blunt abdominal trauma, ongoing health issues can include chronic pain, internal bleeding, and organ dysfunction.


Fractures to bones surrounding the abdomen, such as the ribs or pelvis, can cause internal bleeding, organ damage, and infections.

Kidney Injuries

Liver Injuries

Various ongoing health issues can occur after sustaining a liver injury including chronic liver disease and cirrhosis.

Pancreatic Injuries

Pancreatic injuries can cause ongoing health issues such as chronic pancreatitis, leading to persistent abdominal pain and digestive problems.

Penetrating Abdominal Trauma

Penetrating abdominal trauma is a very serious condition that can cause massive internal bleeding, shock, sepsis, organ failure, and death.

Ruptured Bowel

Severe consequences of a ruptured bowel include peritonitis, a life-threatening infection of the abdominal cavity, and sepsis.

Ruptured Spleen
