Are you looking for compensation for an abdominal injury?


If you have suffered an abdominal injury caused by the act or omission of an act of somebody else, you may well be entitled to compensation. In order to receive this you must provide detailed descriptions relating to the injury suffered, and prove that it was caused by another individual or organisation’s negligence.

Given that this process is often extremely detailed, it is advisable that you seek expert legal advice.

The levels of personal injury compensation awarded vary greatly. The seriousness of the injury and the financial losses involved are taken into consideration. The amount of compensation you receive will depend upon several factors:

  • How much pain you suffered
  • Whether you are prevented from working and for how long
  • Whether you are prevented from enjoying activities you used to engage in
  • What medical and other costs you have incurred
  • Whether you will require ongoing support

What are common abdominal injuries?

A common abdominal injury is a displacement of the intestines or other internal organs by a seatbelt during a car accident. The damage this causes can vary from acute discomfort to serious chronic pain, digestive problems, even haemorrhaging and infection that takes surgery to rectify and months to recover from.

If you have had to receive hospital treatment and were unable to work for some time, you could be awarded a significant amount.

Before awarding any compensation, evidence must be produced. Usually there is a requirement for extremely detailed evidence to be documented, and this may include medical specialist reports, witness statements and various evidences of loss.

It is therefore very important to ensure that you receive guidance from a specialist personal-injury lawyer, who will provide you with a high standard of personal service and attention, and ensure that an already stressful event is not made even more traumatic.
