Symptoms of Internal Bleeding

Because external symptoms may not be present after you've been in an accident in Georgia, internal bleeding can be difficult to recognize. Symptoms of internal bleeding vary widely, depending upon where the injuries occurred in the body.

If you've been in an accident in Georgia, internal bleeding symptoms you should watch for include:  


  • inflammation and pain;
  • altered mental function after head trauma;
  • weakness, lightheadedness or shortness of breath after abdominal trauma;
  • bruising;
  • blood in the urine; and
  • loss of sensation or range of motion in affected area. 

Compensation for Your Internal Bleeding Injuries

Getting quick medical attention is the first step if you suspect internal bleeding after an accident in Georgia. If you've been injured because of someone's negligence, consider speaking with a personal injury attorney who can help you seek compensation for your injuries. An attorney may be able to help you receive compensation for your medical expenses as well as for the emotional and physical impact the accident has had on your life.
