However, as with any injury, there are varying levels of severity The more serious bruises can lead to hematoma, which is more commonly known as internal bleeding. If this occurs, it is because there has been a hemorrhage beneath the skin, sometimes in the organs.
The difference between a bruise and a hematoma is that, while still sensitive and often painful, the hematoma will be hard to the touch. Hematoma’s can also last significantly longer than bruises and will sometimes require surgery to treat or remove.

The main cause of bruises due to negligence are slips, trips and falls. Spillages, debris lying around, and recently mopped floors with no warning signs present, are all examples of how somebody could obtain bruises at somebody else’s fault.
Other causes of bruising are road traffic accidents, seat belt bruising, supermarket accidents and work accidents.
Although most bruises are healed within a few days of ice and compression, more severe bruises may require hospital attention until the swelling reduces and it is certain that there will be no further injuries. The accumulation of blood and other excess fluids will cause a hard lump or swelling hematoma, which has the potential to block the blood flow to other organs.
Severe bruises could potentially lead to the sufferer being unable to work, and/or difficulty to participate in their usual hobbies e.g going to the gym or playing a sport. If this is the case, you could be eligible to claim for compensation for loss of earnings.
