Keeping The Liver From Severe Damage In An Accident

While wearing a seatbelt in a car, it can help to prevent injuries to the liver for both the driver and the passenger. If a belt is worn at all times, then the costs associated with the accident can decrease compared to not wearing a seatbelt at all.

Even though there have been over 50,000 people who have had injuries to the liver during a car accident, injuries that have been severe had led to death more often than injuries that are considered minor. Severe damage to the liver isn't as common while wearing a seatbelt in a car accident. Airbags can also play a part in the severity of liver injuries, but they do not take away the possibility of injuries alone.

Audrey Renson is an author who has studied crash reports and has seen that the mortality rate is lower among people wearing seatbelts in an accident. There are some concerns as to whether seatbelts completely protect those who are in a vehicle or if they can cause injuries, especially from the impact of a car accident. There are also questions as to whether airbags can take the place of wearing seatbelts.

There are over 2 million visits at emergency rooms each year because of injuries sustained in car accidents. A common injury as a result of car accidents is trauma to the abdomen with the liver and the spleen being the organs that receive the most damage.

After being injured in a car accident, a personal injury attorney might file a claim for lost wages, pain and suffering, and medical bills. The attorney may examine the evidence presented by the officers on the scene and witness statements to determine the best course of action against the opposing insurance company and any other drivers involved in the accident.
