Blunt Force Trauma Accident Lawsuits
Blunt force trauma occurs when an external object physically impacts an individual’s body part, causing injury by impact. Blunt force trauma contrasts with penetrating trauma, where a foreign object penetrates the body. Blunt force trauma often occurs in car accidents to the abdominal area, injuring internal organs such as the liver, spleen, and digestive organs.
However, workplace accidents can also lead to blunt force trauma and related injuries. The following are common blunt force trauma injuries at the workplace:
- Being hit by an industrial vehicle can cause serious and even fatal blunt force trauma leading to internal bleeding and hemorrhaging
- Falling objects, such as overhead steel beams, or loads being lifted in a warehouse or on a construction site, can cause serious blunt force trauma leading to brain injuries
