Sustaining a Traumatic Chylothorax in Car Accidents

I’m Ed Smith, a Car Accident Lawyer in Sacramento. The lungs are vital organs that help carry oxygen from the outside world and transmit it into the bloodstream. Unfortunately, the lungs are also fragile and can be easily damaged. The lungs are protected by something called a pleural lining. This helps prevent fluid from filling out around the lungs, compressing them and preventing them from filling with air.

Thoracostomy in an Auto Accident

Thoracostomy in an Auto Accident

I’m Ed Smith, a Car Accident Lawyer in Sacramento. Someone who suffers chest trauma in an auto accident could require surgical intervention. One of the procedures that medical professionals might perform is called a thoracostomy. A recent case report served as an example of the benefits and dangers that a thoracostomy can present. The report described a severe injury that a young driver received in a car accident. While driving down the interstate, his car hit a concrete barrier and spun out. In the process of spinning, his vehicle was struck in the driver’s door. The window shattered, and the driver suffered numerous serious injuries. Because of the severe nature of the accident, EMS was called. On evaluation, they realized that he had experienced chest trauma and was struggling to breathe. He was taken to a nearby hospital for further evaluation. On arrival, he was found to have a collapsed lung. A chest tube was placed to remove the trapped air and re-inflate the lung, a procedure called a tube thoracostomy. Sadly, further problems developed.

Preserving Evidence Following an Auto Accident

I’m Ed Smith, a Sacramento Car Accident Lawyer. Even a minor car crash is likely to rattle any driver, but how they handle the situation immediately following the auto accident could significantly influence what lies ahead.
