Suffering Internal Bleeding from GA Car Accidents Caused by Drunk Drivers (Part A)

In Georgia, car accidents caused by drunk drivers can wreak havoc on the lives of unsuspecting accident victims. Serious injuries like internal bleeding or traumatic brain injury can cause loss of income, mounting medical expenses, the threat of permanent disability or disfigurement, not to mention the mental anguish and psychological turmoil that accompanies these hurdles. All of these can detract from the quality of your life and make you feel overwhelmed and hopeless. The fact that your accident was caused by a drunk driver only compounds the aggravation you may already experience. 

Internal bleeding is just one of the many types of injuries that you can sustain from a crash with a drunk driver, but it’s one of the most deceptive because it may not be immediately visible by way of external symptoms. As a result, injuries can go untreated and unbeknownst to accident victims until significant – and sometimes irreversible – damage has already been done.

Internal bleeding can be caused by blunt trauma, deceleration trauma or bone fractures, and you should always check with a medical professional after a car accident to ensure that you are not suffering from an injury that is bleeding internally.

Help with Drunk Driving Accidents From an Atlanta Car Accident Attorney 

Fortunately, while the injuries and ramifications of car accidents caused by drunk drivers are often severe, you may have more options than you think. If you’ve been injured by a drunk driver, an Atlanta car accident attorney can help you by investigating the facts of the collision that caused your accident and building a compelling personal injury case against the driver and any other responsible parties.

A personal injury claim gives you, the injured victim, the opportunity to recover money for the expenses you have incurred as a result of being injured by someone else’s negligence. If you or someone you love has suffered from an internal bleeding injury after one of Atlanta’s drunk driving accidents, reach out to an attorney who can help you mitigate the fallout of your injury.
