Given the current circumstances, our office staff will primarily be working remotely. We will have a reduced number of people on site from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. Our staff will still be responding to emails and phone calls and continuing to do the necessary things to care for our clients. We ask that if you do not need to visit our office in person, you stay home and contact us via telephone or email. We are still here to serve and hope that everyone stays safe and healthy.

Signs Of A Spleen Injury

Injuries incurred in a motor vehicle accident or a serious fall injury often include broken bones, head injuries and ruptured disks. Such injuries may be immediately noticeable. Internal injuries such as a ruptured spleen, however, may be less obvious at first. A thorough physical examination by a doctor is an important step to take after a car crash or any accident involving blunt abdominal trauma.

The spleen is a small but vital organ. It helps the body fight infection. It produces new red blood cells and helps rid the body of old ones. An immediate consequence of a ruptured spleen is often profuse abdominal bleeding. As an injured person’s blood pressure drops, there may be symptoms of a ruptured spleen such as:

  • Blurred vision
  • Fainting
  • Signs of shock

If you are still conscious after a serious accident and are trying to diagnose your own injuries, Harris, Powers & Cunningham encourages you to see a doctor as soon as possible rather than trying to decide whether you should go to a hospital. A ruptured spleen may require surgery, and the sooner it is correctly diagnosed, the better off you can be.

Harris, Powers & Cunningham has represented accident victims in Arizona since 1981. Our attorneys are ready to evaluate your spleen injury case and recommend a course of action to seek proper compensation for you.
