Vital Organ Injuries

SEEKING FAIR COMPENSATION FOR VITAL ORGAN INJURY CLAIMANTS

When identified, internal organ injuries often require one or more surgeries coupled with extensive follow up car. They can also result in long-term or permanent disability and reduced quality of life.

WHAT ARE THE VITAL ORGANS?

The human body has five vital organs – these are the organs that are essential to human survival.

  1. Brain
  2. Heart
  3. Kidneys
  4. Liver
  5. Lungs

An injury to any of these organs is considered a medical emergency.
