Car Accidents Can Severely Damage your Kidneys

If you have been in a car accident, it is vital to have your internal organs examined by a doctor. Even if you don’t think you have been injured, there is a possibility that you have sustained internal damage, especially to your kidneys. Kidney injuries can be hard to notice because they don’t always cause pain, but they can be very serious if not treated promptly. If you think you may have a kidney injury, be sure to see a doctor right away.

Kidney Damage Due to Car Accidents

There are a number of different types of injuries that can occur to your kidneys as a result of a car accident. These include things like contusions (bruising), lacerations (cuts), and even more serious injuries like renal failure or kidney damage. In some cases, these injuries can be minor and may not require any treatment. However, in other cases, they can be quite serious and may require hospitalization or even surgery. If you have been in a car accident, it is important to seek medical attention right away, even if you feel fine, in order to rule out any possible kidney injuries.

Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a sudden and often temporary loss of kidney function. AKI can occur when your kidneys are damaged by trauma or a disease or condition, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, or an infection. AKI can also occur after a surgery or after taking certain medications. AKI can lead to a build-up of toxins in your blood and can cause your heart, lungs, and brain to not work properly. If not treated, AKI can be fatal.


After a car accident, the first thing you should do is seek medical attention for any injuries you have sustained. Once you have been seen by a medical professional, you should then contact a car accident lawyer to discuss your case. Depending on the severity of the accident, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

Hire a Lawyer to Defend you in Court

If you’ve been in a car accident, you know how overwhelming the aftermath can be. Not only do you have to deal with the physical and emotional aftermath of the accident, but you also have to deal with the financial fallout. Medical bills can quickly add up, and if you’re unable to work, you may be facing a very uncertain financial future.

An Atlanta car accident lawyer can help you recover the compensation you need to cover your medical bills and other expenses. We can also help you pursue a claim for pain and suffering damages. If the accident was caused by someone else’s negligence, you shouldn’t have to bear the financial burden of the accident. The Grant Law Office can help you hold the responsible party accountable and get the compensation you deserve. Schedule a consultation today. Call (404) 995-3955.
