Abdominal trauma can occur because of sudden tightening of the lap belt or other blunt-force trauma caused by collision. Injuries to the intestines or internal organs are extremely dangerous and sometimes lethal. Lacerations to the spleen, liver, or kidneys can have profound impact on the patient’s future health. Careful medical research should be performed on a case-by-case basis to illustrate the likely future effect of abdominal injury for the patient. Claims adjusters typically treat these as transient conditions that are frightening at first but result in a full recovery. If medical evidence indicates otherwise, legal leverage should be applied to enforce full rights of compensation.
