Common Causes of Organ Failure

Organ failure can occur due to a variety of causes, including:

  • Catastrophic injuries, such as those sustained in car accidents, slip and falls, and workplace accidents
  • Infections, such as sepsis, pneumonia, and meningitis
  • Genetic disorders, such as cystic fibrosis and sickle cell anemia
  • Chronic diseases, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and liver disease
  • Medications and toxins, such as chemotherapy drugs, carbon monoxide, and heavy metals
  • Autoimmune disorders, such as lupus and rheumatoid arthritis
  • Surgical complications, such as bleeding and infections
  • Heart disease, such as congestive heart failure and heart attacks
  • Lung disease, such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and pulmonary embolism.

It’s essential to identify the cause of organ failure to determine the appropriate treatment and to hold those responsible for the injury accountable.

Steps to Take If You’ve Been Injured in An Accident

After an accident, it is crucial to take immediate action to protect your health and well-being and preserve any potential legal claims you may have.

Here are five steps to take after an accident:

  1. Seek medical attention. The first and most important step after any injury is to seek medical attention as soon as possible. 
  2. Collect evidence. Gather evidence to support any potential legal claims you may have. 
  3. Contact a personal injury law firm. If you have suffered organ failure due to someone else’s negligence, it is in your best interest to contact a personal injury law firm as soon as possible.
  4. Follow doctor’s orders. This may include physical therapy, medication, or other forms of medical care. 
  5. Keep records of your expenses. This includes medical bills, lost wages, and any other costs associated with the accident or injury. 

Taking these steps after an accident resulting in organ failure can help protect your health, your legal rights and your financial well-being.

Signs & Symptoms of Organ Failure

Organ failure can manifest in various ways, including:

  • Shortness of breath and difficulty breathing
  • Fatigue and weakness
  • Swelling in the legs, ankles, or abdomen
  • Yellowing of the skin and eyes (jaundice)
  • Nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea
  • Decreased urine output or dark urine
  • Confusion or disorientation
  • Rapid heartbeat or irregular heartbeat
  • High blood pressure or low blood pressure
  • Decreased consciousness or loss of consciousness

It is important to note that some symptoms may not appear until several hours or days after the injury. If you have been in an accident or experienced trauma to your abdomen, get medical attention if you experience any of these symptoms, even if they are delayed. 

Legal Rights for Organ Failure Victims

Individuals who have suffered organ failure due to another party’s negligence have legal rights to seek compensation for their damages. Understanding these rights is crucial to ensure victims receive the financial support they need to recover from their injuries and move forward.

Establishing Negligence

To seek compensation, the injured party must prove that another party’s negligence caused their organ failure.

This may involve demonstrating that:

  • The at-fault party had a duty of care to the injured person (e.g., a driver has a responsibility to operate their vehicle safely)
  • The at-fault party breached their duty of care (e.g., by driving recklessly or failing to maintain a safe environment)
  • The breach of duty directly caused the organ failure
  • The injured party suffered damages as a result of the injury (e.g., medical expenses, lost wages, pain, and suffering)

The presence of these three elements constitute the negligence factor, determining if your injury claim is valid. 

Statute of Limitations

Florida has a statute of limitations that sets a deadline for filing a personal injury claim, which can vary depending on the case’s specific circumstances. For injuries sustained before March 24, 2023, you have four years to file a lawsuit for a negligence claim. For injuries sustained after March 24, 2023, the statute of limitations is two years.

It is essential to consult with a personal injury attorney as soon as possible after the injury to ensure that your claim is filed within the required time frame.

Compensation for Damages

If you have suffered organ failure due to someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation for various damages.

These can include:

  • Medical expenses — Compensation for medical expenses covers the cost of treatment for organ failure, including doctor visits, physical therapy, medications, and any necessary surgeries or procedures.
  • Lost wages — If your injury has caused you to miss work or lose income, you may be entitled to compensation for your past and future wages.
  • Pain and suffering — Compensation for pain and suffering addresses the physical pain and emotional distress you have experienced due to your injury.
  • Emotional distress — In some cases, victims may be entitled to compensation for the psychological impact of their injury, such as anxiety, depression, or post-traumatic stress disorder.
  • Loss of enjoyment of life — If organ failure has significantly impacted your ability to enjoy your usual activities and hobbies, you may be entitled to compensation for this loss.

It is essential to consult with a personal injury attorney experienced in handling organ failure cases to ensure your rights are protected and you receive the compensation you deserve.
